GCR Group, a leading company in the manufacture of a new generation of sustainable plastic solutions for the plastics processing industry, has acquired a participation in SINTAC Recycling. Thus, GCR Group becomes the new partner of SINTAC Recycling, a leading plastics recycling company, which offers a wide range of 100% recycled plastics from industrial, domestic and agricultural post-consumer plastic materials.
The strategic alliance between both companies responds to the objective of expanding the offer of sustainable and circular solutions to provide greater added value to customers, placing environmental commitment at the centre. This agreement is an important step forward towards the transition to a more sustainable plastics industry, promoting the circular economy to give plastics a second life by marketing 100% recycled and recyclable products.
The CEO of GCR Group, Joan Prats, said: “I recently took over the management of the company with the clear desire to accelerate its growth based on the commitment to sustainability and the determination to contribute to building a better world. In this line, the achievement of this alliance is an important milestone not only for GCR Group and SINTAC Recycling but for the whole sector. In this way, we are promoting a new generation of high-quality, sustainable solutions from recycled plastic, which allow us to reduce our environmental impact and carbon footprint”.
For the CEO of SINTAC, Vicente Olmos, “the change of partner carried out by our company, bringing into our structure a European leader such as GCR Group, will allow us to continue innovating in the recycling of plastics and circular economy projects, as well as reinforcing our common positioning as a major reference in Europe and the world”.
