Ravago acquires west coast plastics distributor
HOUSTON, September 17, 2018 (PCW) -- Ravago Americas has acquired west coast resin distributor Bolcof-Port Polymers and will merge the company with its Amco Polymers business, the company announced late last week.
Bolcof will continue to operate as it does today until integration into Amco Polymers is completed later this year, Ravago said in a news release.
Earlier this year, the Roussis family, which controls the Ravago Group, purchased Bamberger Polymers, but it said at the time that Bamberger would continue to operate separately and independently from Ravago.
The Bolcof acquisition includes an Azusa, CA facility, providing on-site rail storage, local warehousing, packaging and van/bulk truck delivery capabilities, Ravago said.
Bolcof's existing sales coverage spans most of the western US but also includes key accounts along the East Coast and Canada.
Bolcof has been in business since the 1960s, making it one of the first resin distributors in Southern California. It handles materials ranging from specialized engineering resins and compounds to commodity plastics like PE, PP and PS. -- David Barry
