MHG opens specialty tolling division

Biopolymer manufacturer Meredian Holdings Group Inc. (MHG; Bainbridge, GA) announced that it is expanding its services by creating a new division solely dedicated to toll manufacturing at its headquarters. Recognizing the need for specialty tolling services, MHG has created a division for this crucial work to increase visibility among potential customers and to offer a cost-effective option.

MHG claims to have the most advanced reactive extrusion process in the industry, which, it adds, has been perfected over the past 10 years by subsidiary DaniMer Scientific Co., also located in Bainbridge. With its state-of-the-art equipment and laboratories, material handling and logistics services and 70 million pounds a year of available tolling capacity, MHG can serve as a one-stop shop for companies that have exceeded their capabilities. MHG has already signed several contracts, and is in negotiations with multiple Fortune 500 companies worldwide.

“The interest [in] our tolling service has skyrocketed over the last year,” stated Scott Tuten, Chief Marketing Officer, MHG. “We feel creating a separate division for this service will allow us to dedicate resources and reach even more companies to tell them about MHG’s vast capabilities, which extend well beyond making biopolymers.”

Current tolling contracts include a $20 million deal with global food service provider Tate&Lyle. MHG produces Tate&Lyle’s Staramic Starch line at the Bainbridge facility to help the food service provider meet growing demand. MHG’s specialty tolling services are also being used by Penford Food Ingredients.

MHG offers a comprehensive selection of biopolymers that support the company’s core values of utilizing sustainable and renewable bioplastics to improve people’s lives at work and at home. MHG and its subsidiaries currently own more than 125 patents across nearly 20 countries.
