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, personal care, household, sports automotive, industrial, furniture, or any other end market need a partner who understands their industry and can provide sustainable performing solutions to their products while solving supply chain challenges and keeping full traceability of their raw materials.

Plastic Processors

Plastic processors absorb the challenges of Brand owners plus that of raw material suppliers. They need a partner that ensures continuity of supply and supports processability efficiencies to optimize the output while being consistent on quality. They need a raw material supplier that connects the dots of their needs plus those of the Brand owners.

Raw Material Suppliers

Raw Material suppliers need to understand the industry challenges, consumer trends and regulations so that to offer innovative and sustainable material solutions across the value chain.
