Vancouver-based bioplastics developer and supplier Solegear has partnered with two Amercian compounders to help support production of its Polysole brand of bioplastics and Traverse brand of bioplastic-based composites.                                        

Ferco Compounding Inc., headquartered in Ontario, Calif., is one of the two compounders now working with Solegear; Standridge Color Corp., a Social Circle, Ga.-based supplier of thermoplastic compounds, is the other.

“We are pleased to announce this milestone and to be able to create partnerships with quality companies that will support Solegear’s long term success,” said Toby Reid, Solegear’s founder and CEO. “Both manufacturing partners have over 15 years’ experience, are high quality operators and continue to be run by their original founders. These new partnerships will help Solegear to deliver significant annual product capacity and to scale out our business with larger volumes.”

Solegear expects to begin manufacturing Polysole and Traverse materials at both facilities this spring, Reid continued.
