      Renew Plastics Differentiates itself from Competitors

      "At one time, it was fashionable to say that used plastics were ruining the environment...in other words--plastics were a problem. Through research and creative thinking, we were the first company to turn the problem into useful, environmentally safe products that benefit every segment of society."            Irvin Vincent, Founder, 1932-2003

      Renew Plastics started producing environmentally friendly products in 1973. Founded by Irvin Vincent in the fall, he successfully produced the industry's first recycled plastic lumber. After three years of refinement, the decking was ready for the market. Structures built with this product in 1976 are still going strong and looking good! For the next two decades, N.E.W. Plastics Corp. continued to develop its recycling technology while industry awareness and acceptance of recycled plastic lumber products grew. RENEW Plastics was established as a separate business unit in 1986, dedicated to alternative decking systems and custom extrusions. Privately held and family-owned for two generations, N.E.W. Plastics Corp. and RENEW Plastics have been leading innovators in plastic recycling technology for more than three decades.

      We developed the industry's first plastic lumber, creating a viable consumer market that could divert plastics from our landfills. In that spirit, we buy office and packaging supplies that contain post-consumer and post-industrial waste and we are PVC free. RENEW Plastics, a division of N.E.W. Plastics Corp., produces EVOLVE® plastic lumber and custom extrusions. Made from 100% high-density plastic, this material is completely recyclable. It is not a composite and contains no fillers. We accept used and scrapped EVOLVETM, and reconvert it into new, usable products.

      At Renew Plastics we believe plastic is too valuable to waste. For every one plastic bottle that is recycled, three more are thrown away. It's unfortunate because the demand for recycled plastic is higher than ever. N.E.W. Plastics Corp. is headquartered in Luxemburg, Wisconsin, nine miles east of Green Bay. The business is housed in a modern manufacturing campus with more than 90,000 square feet of facility space. Renew and N.E.W. Plastics Corp. have the capabilities to convert over 25 million pounds of recycled plastic annually. We pride ourselves in producing environmentally friendly products and practicing from a sustainable business perspective. EvolveTM Premium Decking is "green" no matter which of the fifty available colors you choose!
