Tymex Plastics is a privately held company that was established in 2001 to primarily serve the rotational molding industry with state-of-the-art compounding and pulverizing capabilities. While pursuing this market, many opportunities arose that set the stage for the full-service plastic compounder and recycler they have now become.
Tymex has a management team with over 85 years of plastics sales, operations, and production experience. They specialize in the implementation of cost saving thermoplastic recycling and color compounding programs that provide our customers with various options what will conform to their needs and abilities. With a production facility of nearly 160,000 square feet, Tymex has the capabilities to handle a wide range of compounding programs.
