INSTITUTE, WV / ACCESSWIRE / January 14, 2019 / On Friday, January 11, 2019, GlyEco Inc. (OTC PINK: GLYE) completed the sale of the assets of its Consumer Segment, or antifreeze recycling and route sales business, to Heritage Crystal Clean, LLC (HCC). Heritage Crystal Clean's current businesses include parts cleaning, containerized waste, vacuum services, used oil collection, re-refining and product sales, antifreeze recycling and field services. HCC has purchased the assets of our facilities in Minneapolis, MN, Tea, SD, Lakeland, FL, Rock Hill, SC, Indianapolis, IN, Landover, MD and Atlanta, GA.
This divestiture is a key step in the implementation of GlyEco's strategic direction, which was announced last September. "The divestiture of our Consumer Segment will allow GlyEco to focus on its core strengths and streamline its operations," commented Richard Geib, President and CEO of GlyEco.
GlyEco will retain its manufacturing and sales businesses in additives, glycol, and the downstream additized glycol/water Performance Fluids, including antifreeze and heat transfer fluids, and will focus its remaining people and resources on these businesses. The company plans to grow aggressively, based on GlyEco's competitive strengths of vertical integration, extensive technological expertise, and its established reputation and relationships in these markets. With its new blending facility at its Institute, West Virginia glycol plant site, GlyEco plans to make and sell several times the volume of antifreeze that its Consumer Segment had been selling annually.
As part of the consolidation enabled by this transaction, GlyEco will relocate its headquarters to the site of its glycol and Performance Fluids operations at Institute, West Virginia.
