PolyQuest to Expand Darlington, South Carolina Facility for the Eighth Time

PolyQuest, Inc. (PQ), the leading distributor of PET resins and manufacturer of recycled PET resins in North America, announces the expansion of its facility in Darlington, South Carolina.


PolyQuest, Inc. (PQ), the leading distributor of PET resins and manufacturer of recycled PET resins in North America, announces the expansion of its facility in Darlington, South Carolina.

Established in 2004, the Darlington facility has served as the company’s flagship distribution and recycling location. Centrally located in the hub of North America’s virgin PET production with access to major railroads, railways, and coastal ports, Darlington has long provided PolyQuest the ability to generate value for its business partners regardless of its position in the PET supply chain. The facility also operates recycled plastic processing capabilities to deliver sustainable raw material solutions to its customers in every end application for PET.

“Our business continues to grow at exponential levels, both organically in virgin PET and rPET as well as via access to new resins such as polypropylene and polyethylene,” said Tod Durst, president, PolyQuest. “With demand for our products at the highest level we have experienced in our company’s history and limited available supply, our customers are facing extended lead times which predicates that we hold higher levels of safety stock to service their needs.”

The expansion will reportedly include the addition of four new buildings totaling 225,000 square feet, two new rail spurs, enhanced material handling capabilities, and new machinery to process incremental volume of recycled PET and other thermoplastics. PolyQuest is adding 15 new jobs at the Darlington site with plans to increase.

Construction has already begun at the site with an anticipated completion date of February 2022.

“Once this expansion is complete our Darlington facility will have 525,000 square feet, the capacity to hold 38 rail cars, 160 million pounds of recycled plastic processing capacity, approximately 100 employees, and over $50 million invested since 2004,” said Ryan Nettles, vice president, operations, PolyQuest. “PolyQuest’s goal remains to be the value-added supplier of PET, PP, and recycled PET products to our customers and the expansion at Darlington enhances our ability to achieve that goal.”
