NCG President and CEO Michael A. Chorpash is “pleased to expand our service portfolio to include responsible material recycling in North America. We have successfully upgraded our market approach by offering full life cycle services in Europe and South America and look forward to continually expanding our comprehensive service portfolio. We are also excited that ERC’s CEO Peter Suttoni will be remaining onboard to oversee the successful integration into the MAUSER/NCG family and the continued growth of this important segment.”
ERC President and CEO Peter Suttoni stated “We are very excited to become part of the MAUSER and NCG family. Since 2008 we have recycled and processed NCG material for MAUSER to use in the production of new plastic drums and it has been a very successful relationship. We are looking forward to working even more closely and benefitting from the synergies that will result from the combination of the companies.”
