Revolution of Little Rock, parent company of Delta Plastics of Little Rock, announced Wednesday that it has acquired Jadcore LLC of Terre Haute, Indiana, expanding its sale of plastic products and services in the Midwest.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

According to Revolution, Jadcore has a vertically integrated manufacturing platform focused on recapturing and recycling post-industrial plastic waste, which it supplies to other manufacturers as an alternative to virgin materials. It also makes can liners and specialty bags made from post-industrial recycled (PIR) resin. The company is one of the largest independent producers of PIR resin in the Midwest, it said.

Jadcore operations include comprehensive recycling services, proprietary blending and processing, as well as blown film products for institutional and retail markets made with PIR resin.

Revolution offers an array of blown film products to the agriculture, construction, food service and retail sectors. The company then recovers and processes customers’ used plastic to create post-consumer recycled (PCR) resin, which is made into new products, including trash can liners, carryout bags and construction films, or sold in resin form to businesses looking to add recycled content to their own product supply chain. 

Revolution was acquired by Arsenal Capital Partners in 2019.

“Jadcore has built an exceptional business rooted in sustainable solutions, best-in-class production capabilities, outstanding product quality and world-class customer service,” Revolution CEO Sean Whiteley said in a news release. “Our shared values create an exciting opportunity for collaboration, and we feel very fortunate to welcome the Jadcore team to our Revolution family.

“Our focus has been on providing high-quality recycling solutions to the plastics industry since the day my parents started the business in 1974,” said Rob Doti, president of Jadcore. “As the fourth president of the company — succeeding two brothers and my father — it’s truly been a family affair.”

Doti said his company has recycled more than 2 billion pounds of plastic scrap since its beginning. He called the change to combine with Revolution “an ideal fit,” and that Jadcore’s long-term growth strategy “has always been to expand into post-consumer recycling.”

Last year, Revolution announced plans for a $20 million, 36,000-SF expansion of its 100,000-SF manufacturing facility at the Little Rock Port. The company said it would create 60 new jobs over the next two years. It already employs 290 at the site.
