The acquisition of Ply-Pak adds another tool to the EnviroServ range of services as it focuses on the use of waste plastic/polymer material in the manufacture of various types of products. Ply-Pak is now referred to as EnviroServ Polymer Solutions.
EnviroServ Polymer Solutions has over time developed a significant skill set and knowledge base, which enables the company to produce a range of products which are not only far more robust than traditional natural material based competing products, but are also more “environmentally friendly” in their ability to include components of waste wood and recycled plastic. EnviroServ Polymer Solutions uses an extrusion process together with an innovative patented formulation in an established manufacturing process. EnviroServ Polymer Solutions manufactures composite products, mainly outdoor decking from both waste and virgin PVC and waste wood fibre. The decking is well known and branded “Diamond Deck”. It can be produced in a variety of natural colours with the EnviroServ Polymer Solutions’ patented wood fibre colouring process, with a wood grain embossing.
A new and exciting development for EnviroServ Polymer Solutions is the manufacture of the “Green Pallet” in conjunction with one of their clients. This is a totally non-wood composite of recycled polyethylene and coated paper board. This extruded composite profile will replace wood in a traditional designed fabricated pallet. Apart from the obvious saving of timber, the “Green Pallet” has many advantages over timber pallets and one piece plastic pallets. EnviroServ Polymer Solutions is working closely with a significant player in the logistics industry to develop a pallet tracking system using an embedded chip in the composite profile.
EnviroServ Polymer Solutions is now located at the EnviroServ Apex offices and the production factory is based in Pietermaritzburg
