PTi Retains Plastic Machinery Works as Australian Representative


Aurora IL, June 24, 2021— Processing Technologies International (PTi), Aurora, IL is pleased to announce the appointment of Plastics Machinery Works as its exclusive representative for PTi's extrusion systems and aftermarket sales and support in Australia and New Zealand.  Plastic Machinery Works, located in Keilor Park, Australia now represents PTi in the sales and promotion of PTi's complete line of products, includes the SUPER-G® HighSPEED and HVTSE® DryerLESS extruders, and the G-SERIES® Configurable Roll Stands.   In addition, Plastic Machinery Works will serve as the region's dedicated supplier of spare parts for PTi equipment.

PTi is recognized as a global leader for the supply of high-performance sheet extrusion machinery, with an emphasis on superior equipment performance and sheet quality.  Product lines are comprised of single and twin-screw extruders, providing conventional, dryerless, and multi-resin extrusion capabilities for the production of mono, multi-layer, high barrier, foam, fiber and various other applications.  Whether customized to exact production standards or chosen from a standard configuration within PTi's stock inventory program (Genesis), PTi sheet extrusion systems, including compounding and reclaim systems, provide solutions for a wide array of applications used in the packaging, automotive, construction, food and beverage, and agricultural industries.

Plastic Machinery Works prides also itself on providing superior service and technical excellence, backed by a team of highly competent, factory trained engineers with decades of experience in the Australian and New Zealand manufacturing markets.  Specialized services include machinery and control system installation and removal, repair and maintenance, diagnostic analysis and testing, as well as an inventory of readily available parts. Such services, along with Plastic Machinery Works ability to provide high-quality technical and hands-on support by experienced process engineers, aligns directly with the strategic goals and principles of PTi.    

"This collaboration with Plastic Machinery Works defines the model for PTi to expand into strategic global markets, as this alliance provides the means for us to match the level of service and support currently experienced by domestic markets including Mexico and Canada" say Matthew Banach, PTi's Vice President of Business Development.    With Australia's dependence on imports and the trends in sheet goods showing a rise, a regional presence provides a benefit that Australian extruded sheet producers would not otherwise have. 

Leading the venture will be Plastic Machinery Works' Managing Director, Jeff Powers, and his team, who will work directly with Matthew Banach.  "We are building an infrastructure to support the Australian sheet producers and thermoformers with this increasing demand for high quality domestic products," says Banach.
