Partnering across the value chain

The ever-evolving landscape of the global plastic industry is being shaped by rapid change, impacting consumer needs, sustainability requirements, and the continuing demand for traceability and supply along the value chain. Our partners, whether they’re brand owners or plastic processors, must embrace this evolution and seek a partner like GCR who understands the bigger picture and can tackle their business challenges.

Brand Owners

Brand owners in the food packaging, household, automotive, industrial, sports, furniture, and other markets require partners who understand their industry challengues. Partners must provide sustainable and high-performance solutions for their products, tackle supply chain challenges, and ensure full traceability of raw materials.

Plastic Processors

Plastic processors face the challenges of both brand owners and raw material suppliers. They need a partner who ensures a continuous supply and supports process efficiency to optimize output while maintaining consistent quality. They need a raw material supplier who understands and connects the dots between their needs and those of brand owners

Raw Material Suppliers

Raw material suppliers must comprehend industry challenges, consumer trends, and regulations to provide innovative and sustainable material solutions across the entire value chain.
