With nearly 50 years of experience behind it, N.E.W. Plastics Corp. continues to fill needs in the plastics industry while innovating plastic recycling technology. The company operates two plants in Luxemburg, Wis., totaling 110,000 square feet of manufacturing space, with an additional 100,000 square feet dedicated to warehousing. In its facilities, the company converts more than 25 million pounds of discarded plastic into useful, environmentally friendly products every year.
After founding the company in 1968, Irvin Vincent began exploring the idea of recycling plastic trimmings and industrial waste. A few years later, he was able to produce the industry’s first recycled plastic lumber, which it continues to manufacture as one of its three distinct business units.
