The Lavergne Story

The adventure starts

Jean-Luc Lavergne, a young college dropout decides to create a company. At the age of 23 he has the brilliant avant-garde idea that he will take the plastic from old end-of-life products and find a solution to transform them back into raw materials to create new products.

Oh, how brilliant! Recycling plastics!

 

The Team Is Growing

The business expands and the technology evolves. A small team of brilliant, devoted people join. Lavergne introduces their reactive compounding extrusion machine. This means they can now create high-quality plastic.

Lavergne actually obtains FDA approval for PET flakes and sheet to be used in food applications!

Everybody Wants In

You might think there is an abundance of plastic ready to be recycled. Think again. In 2003 there was no proper collection system. Lavergne introduces the first closed-loop recycling program. They take back a companies outdated electronics products and upcycle it to create new products.

Big brands take notice! Lavergne is rocketed to the next level. 

It’s Time To Expand

As the demand grew so did Lavergne. We were now 110 employees and opened manufacturing plant number two in Asia. Vietnam became the second home for the Lavergne family.

With a physical manufacturing in North America and South East Asia we are supplying the clients and partners globally.

 

 

A benchmark is reached; we have manufactured more than 3 billion ink cartridges using more than 177 million pounds of recycled plastic

A message, and more in a bottle.
