O'Neil Color & Compounding (Garfield, NJ), a manufacturer of color masterbatches and custom compounds for the plastics processing industry, has announced the retirement of company president, Mark Bruner.

Upon his retirement Bruner stated, "It has been a great experience and honor leading O'Neil's growth over the last 10 years, and serving as part of the management team of Primex Plastics, our parent. We have a great team of people who have accomplished significant growth since I joined them in 2005."

Bruner started his career in plastics as a sales representative for Shell Chemical in 1976, handling polystyrene and polypropylene customers in the Midwest.

Mike Cramer, President of Primex Plastics, commented, "Mark will surely be missed. His leadership made a significant contribution to O'Neil's growth. We're confident that the addition of Doug to our management team will help take O'Neil to a whole new level of product development, sales increases and service to our customers.

Originally founded in New York in 1957, O'Neil Color & Compounding operates lines in Garfield, NJ, and Jasper, TN, producing color concentrates, additive masterbatches and specialty compounds. These include high-performance custom materials such as TPE/TPO/TPV elastomers, flame-retardant olefins and styrenics, anti-stats, EDS and fully conductive compounds, and structural and wear-resistant formulations for injection, extrusion, blowmolding and rotational molding applications.
