Delta Plastics of the South has acquired Command Packaging and Encore Recycling effective January 30, 2018. Command Packaging, located in Los Angeles, CA, is a leading manufacturer of sustainable plastic carryout bags for the foodservice, grocery, and retail markets. Encore Recycling, located in Salinas, CA is California’s only manufacturer of high-quality post-consumer recycled polyethylene film-grade resin.
Delta Plastics manufactures agricultural plastic polytube and Revolution Bag can liners in Little Rock, AR. As North America’s predominant producer of film grade post-consumer recycled resin in Stuttgart, AR, Delta Plastics is the first manufacturer to offer a complete line of EPA compliant can liners with up to 100% post-consumer recycled resin content. In 2017, Delta Plastics also acquired industrial plastic sheeting and bag manufacturer, Rodeo Plastics of Mesquite, TX.
Pete Grande, CEO of Command Packaging and Encore Recycling commented “As leading consumer brand initiatives and government regulations such as California’s SB270 bag law requiring post-consumer resin continues to grow, demand for high-quality sustainable plastic packaging is increasing. It became obvious we needed a growth partner to accelerate our expansion and meet the growing demands of the markets we serve. The ability to manufacture Command’s product line in Delta’s Arkansas and/or Texas facilities will also be a great benefit to our customers in the Midwest and East. Merging the two companies together creates impressive synergies for both companies.”
