Marco Polo and Global Plastics have merged with ITOCHU to form MGI
The transaction brings together two rapidly growing companies in the plastic resin distribution sector under common ownership and adds a new co-owner from one of the largest chemical distributors in the world. The combined company will be a leading U.S.-based plastic resin distributor with a growing international footprint and existing sales in over 50 countries. MGI International’s (MGI) key management will be introduced to ITOCHU’s international plastic resin network, and that network is expected to support further export growth concurrent with the large expansion of polyethylene supply in the U.S. MGI will distribute ITOCHU’s international sourcing of related products to MGI’s North American customer base.
