EQUIPMENT FINANCING How Financing Can Benefit Your BusinessUse vs Ownership: The value of equipment is in its use, not its ownership. Financing enables you to pay for the equipment with future profit instead of working capital. Affordability: Financing results in low monthly payments, and the equipment can be purchased for a nominal cost at the end of the lease term. Fixed Payments: Fixed payments avoid the uncertainty of variable (floating) interest rates typical of bank financing. Cash Conservation: Monthly payments leave cash available for operational expenses or seasonal cash flow needs. Preserve Credit Lines: Borrowing from the bank shrinks available credit lines. Financing ensures that credit lines are available for non-equipment uses. Tax Advantages: Lease payments (Off-balance sheet structure) may be tax deductible against income. Easy: A simple, one-page application is generally all that is required for approval. Quick: You can be approved for financing within one business day of r…

Resin and Plastic Pricing News

Spot resin trading was solid, transactional volumes increased even though the flow of offers diminished. Polyethylene prices were steady to higher while spot Polypropylene finally began to ease, but just a tad. PE contracts should roll steady for the second month in a row, producers en masse have issued a $.05/lb price increase effective for May, looking to start reversing the $.16/lb of decreases seen from Nov-Feb. 



Polypropylene contracts are decreasing in April, but it will be something less than the $.06/lb decline in PGP monomer costs. Despite the continued strength in the US dollar, export demand for North American resins remains strong due to a number of international cracker and reactor outages creating a need for more material.

Why Recycle Stretch Wrap?


Stretch wrap is one of the largest components of a DC’s (distribution Center) waste stream. Those that do not recycle stretch wrap must pay to have it hauled away with the rest of the trash and disposed. A large DC can generate thousands of pounds of stretch wrap per year — and that carries weight on the bottom line.
Recycling stretch wrap offers an attractive alternative to disposal. There are ready markets for clean material and many firms are especially interested in working with businesses. Also, stretch wrap is relatively easy to identify and recover. It arrives at the dock in a fairly clean, uncontaminated state. If kept that way, it has real market value. In fact, pound for pound, stretch wrap may be the most valuable scrap material a DC can recover.
Stretch wrap is most commonly made of linear low density polyethylene, or LLDPE. Most of us know it as the material that secures pallets of individual containers. Pallet stretch wrap is used by product man…
