ELMIRA —
When Martin Vogt immigrated to Canada in 2006, he did not intend to enter the plastic recycling business.
German locals have found a job at a Mississauga company that produces extrusion molds and injection molding machines for the plastic industry.
After a few months in his new role, he couldn\'t help but notice that no one seemed to be doing a good job in recycling old faux butter barrels, yogurt cups and plastic shopping bags.
Most of the garbage is packed overseas or buried in landfill sites.
It makes no sense.
His father runs a company in southwest Germany that recycles consumer plastics.
If it can be done there, why not in Canada?
Vogt uses its own savings and cash injection from German family businesses to launch the EFS-
Plastic came out 30,000 in 2007-square-
A building rented in Elmira.
The company recycles what Vogt calls \"mixed\" and \"film\" plastics.
The mixed plastic is old artificial butter barrels, yogurt cups, cleaner containers, etc.
The plastic film is old groceries and shopping bags.
Supplied by the Waterloo area and other cities in Ontario, the EFS grinds this material, cleans and separates it, and then converts it into tiny particles.
The finished product is sold to extrusion and injection molding companies, mainly in southern Ontario, which they use to make everything from tool boxes and recycling containers to pipes and trash cans. EFS-
Vogt said plastic recycles 7,500 tons of mixed plastic and film plastic per year, about 10 times the production in the same period in the Waterloo area, and who stressed that the company does not accept plastic discarded by homeowners or individuals.
In addition to the decline in business during the recession, the company has been very busy and operates 24 hours a day, 5 days and a half a week.
At the factory in Union Street, huge old artificial butter barrels and plastic bags hung over workers who worked hard in the constant hum of grinding and washing machines.
Vogt noted that recycling plastics is not a clean business, but as production is expected to double next year, he is looking forward to moving in a cleaner direction, with a large factory somewhere in kidina in 2012.
The 39-year-old came to Canada because he was fascinated by the country.
\"This is an amazing country and I like it,\" he said . \".
He met his wife Darlene in Oakville.
A long-term visit in 2000.
She also works at the EFS and the couple lives in Lynwood with their two children.
He didn\'t want to live in the Toronto and Hamilton areas, so he chose Elmira to do the business.
\"The building is available, and it\'s the right size for a startup, Elmira is a great city,\" he said . \".
Vogt said that in addition to several professional machines imported from Germany, most of the equipment in the EFS factory is made by local manufacturers.
After naming environmental solutions for Environmentally, he was surprised to learn that the initials were also used by another local company, Elmira Farm Service.
To avoid confusion, he insists his company is called EFS-Plastics.
The company had a hard time finding customers at first.
\"We are the first people to make this resin.
Customers don\'t know what\'s behind this, how good the quality is, how reliable it is.
But after they had a chance to test the material, the order started.
\"Now we are basically sold out,\" he said . \"
This success attracted the attention of the Canadian Plastics Industry Association, which awarded the 2010 annual newcomer award to the EFS.
He said the technology created by EFS in Germany was \"more efficient and developed\" and produced higher quality materials with a wider range of applications.
The material is of very good quality and can replace the original plastic and allow his customers to compete with overseas manufacturers, Vogt said.
The market for recycled plastics is also more acceptable.
\"The terminal market is ready.
Not 10 years ago.
His main challenge now is to persuade municipalities to sign a long-term agreement.
The time limit for providing plastic for him.
He says he is competing with brokers who offer deals to cities and towns to send their rubbish overseas where environmental rules are much looser. EFS-Plastics Inc.
