As VistaTek continues to grow, sustainability remains a top priority. The goal to be a landfill free facility is an audacious one, but is seemingly becoming more attainable each day. VistaTek entered into an agreement with a local recycler/compounder of petroleum products. The decision to collect, regrind and store our runners, scrap and overruns has been beneficial.
For the injection molding industry, VistaTek has been notified by our resin suppliers that PP, and HDPE production has been suspended (Force Majeure Declaration) for the short term by INEOS, Formosa, LynodellBassel, and others due to Hurricane Harvey in Houston. Please stay tuned. This will most likely affect availability of these resins through the 3rd quarter.
