Calumet City, Ill., May 7, 2013 – PCC (Plastics Color Corporation), a leading supplier of color concentrates, compounds, custom-functional masterbatches and other polymer technologies, continues to gain market share in California and throughout the West. The company recently announced the hiring of a second account representative to cover the region.
Louise Riley joins Diana Drouillard, who started with PCC last year. Riley, who has nearly 20 years in the color business, is based in Whittier, California, and can be reached at (562) 332-3370, while Drouillard, based in Long Beach, can be reached at (562) 756-3273. PCC opened its Sun Valley, California plant in 2010 primarily to serve the medical, pharmaceutical and food packaging industries. The plant was built from the ground up to produce masterbatches and color concentrates for industries that demand a totally clean production environment. Special measures have been taken to guarantee dust- and microbial-free products.
Water curtain air filters remove particulates from the air which is recycled every four to five minutes. The water for the strand cooling baths passes through a five-micron filter and UV lights that destroy 100 percent of all microbes, providing an uncontaminated product for medical and food use.In 2012 Plastics Color added a liquid color production line to the plant, completely segregated from the clean compounding side of the business. PCC’s LiquiSol™ is a full system for integrating liquid color and additives into current manufacturing. It includes consulting, equipment and supplies for liquid use in molding operations.
According to VP of Business Development Timothy Workman, “The California plant is living up to our expectations in terms of both quality and volume. We now produce a wide variety of masterbatches, color concentrates and liquid products to meet the needs of our western customers. With two sales reps now serving the territory, we anticipate continued growth.”The California facility also serves as a distribution point for all of PCC’s products, including commodity black and white masterbatches and specialty items such as MicroBlok™, FlamaSol FR™, SoluPET™, SoluPLAs™ and SoluPur®.
