MGI International Launches The Aspect Company, a Full-Service Distributor of Sustainable Plastic Resins
New York (PRWeb) October 11, 2022
MGI International, a platform for the world’s leading plastic resin distribution companies, today announced the launch of The Aspect Company (TAC), a full-service distribution company focused exclusively on sustainable resins. TAC’s product line currently includes bio-based, bio-attributed, compostable, and recycled resins. TAC provides sourcing, warehousing, logistics, and technical support, enabling customers to integrate sustainable materials into their supply chains.
The Aspect Company recently achieved the International & Carbon Certification (ISCC) Plus accreditation, an internationally recognized system that provides traceability across the supply chain for recycled and bio-based plastics. This allows TAC to distribute mass balance products like bio-based and chemically recycled resins and facilitates accurate sustainability claims from producer through end consumer.
TAC is a wholly owned subsidiary of MGI International, a holding company that also owns Marco Polo International and Global Plastics. MGI International was formed in 2019 and a minority interest in the company is owned by ITOCHU International, Inc., the U.S. flagship operation of the ITOCHU Group. Through MGI’s legacy brands, TAC has the resources to support the entire value chain — including producers, converters, brand owners, and recyclers — to reach stated sustainability targets.
The leadership team of TAC has 20+ years of experience in the plastics industry and has worked with the major producers of biopolymers. Marco Liuzzo, CEO of MGI International, said:
“As a large global distributor of plastic resin, MGI is committed to meeting increasing customer demand for sustainable materials and advancing the circular economy. The launch of TAC allows us to realize these objectives and reinforces our industry leadership position in sustainable solutions.”
