The operation joins MVR sites in Florida, as well as Morristown, TN. In June, MVR was granted non-alcoholic food-contact clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the use of its recycled polypropylene (PP) and polystyrene (PS) resins in thermoformed or injection molded items. The Kentucky site is a former automotive manufacturing plant with 220,000 ft2 of production space.

MVR's recycled plastic resin, which is 100% post consumer reclaim, is marketed under the Mobius brand name. The company offers low-density, high-density, and linear low-density polyethylene pellets, as well as polypropylene and polyethylene. [email protected]
