Primex Plastics Reedsburg First Supplier Certified SGP Facility
The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), the leading authority in sustainable printing certifications, announced today that the Primex Plastics Corporation facility in Reedsburg, WI is the first supplier facility to become SGP certified. SGP has been certifying print facilities since 2008, but recently expanded the program to include supplier facilities.
“Primex Reedsburg has been a dedicated supplier of printable plastics since inception in 1986 and a long-time supporter of SGP’s sustainability mission,” said Blake Pace, General Manager, Primex. “Having had a front row seat to view continuous improvement on the part of companies that participate in SGP, when the opportunity arose to seek certification ourselves under the expanded supplier certification, we jumped at the chance.”
To continue to meet the needs of the industry, SGP announced the expansion of the certification program to include suppliers and Primex Plastics was the first to achieve recognition. “The facility served as the SGP program’s beta for this expanded program which now opens the way for others to achieve SGP certification,” said Marci Kinter, Chair, SGP Technical Committee. “Primex’s certification illustrates the importance of working with like-minded suppliers.”
