Pick-up of plastic pelletizing business in Louisiana is company’s second sustainability acquisition in four months, following addition of Akrotex in December

PSC Group recently acquired Thermoplastics Services, Inc. (TSI), a plastic custom compounding and pelletizing business based in Dequincy, La.

“Over the last 70 years, PSC has expanded its service offerings in response to the evolving needs of our customers,” said Joel Dickerson, CEO of PSC Group. “In the last 12 months, PSC has made strategic investments in human capital, equipment, and M&A to establish a leading plastic resin sustainability offering.

“Today’s leading petrochemical producers are increasingly committed to environmental stewardship and sustainability, and the acquisition of TSI provides the capabilities and scale needed to further establish PSC as the comprehensive sustainability solutions provider across the industry. The TSI acquisition reinforces PSC’s focus on providing ESG solutions to our customers and supporting our customers’ Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) initiatives while reprocessing and repurposing scrap plastic into products used every day.”

PSC specializes in product handling, site logistics, railcar repair, and sustainability services for the petrochemical, refining, and marine industries.

“This partnership will provide broader access to PSC’s blue chip customer base and rapidly expand our industry-leading sustainability solutions,” said Ashley Wade, president of TSI. “We look forward to bringing our specialized technology to PSC’s existing high-quality service offerings and supporting our customers’ goals of an increasingly circular economy across the plastics industry.”

As a “blue level” member of the Plastics Industry Association’s OCS program, PSC offers comprehensive sustainability services to help customers with Clean Sweep compliance and post-production recycling.

This acquisition marks PSC’s second sustainability acquisition following the December 2021 acquisition of Akrotex Extrusion and Recycling, a plastic custom compounding and pelletizing business based in Orange, Texas.
