Flexible Production-Personal Service

The “bigger is better” motto gets thrown around a lot in the compounding world. But when it comes to quick-turn samples and small batch runs, a mega production facility just won’t cut it.  Primex Color, Compounding & Additives’ strategically-scaled production environment solves the size challenge.  Our small twin-extruder lines give you quick turnaround on samples and orders as small as 100 pounds.  Mid-sized lines run 5,000 pounds and up.  And when size really does count, we’re ready with five large lines that run anywhere from 20,000 pounds up to full truckloads all day, every day.

This flexible production capability gets even better when combined with our stock-and-release program. We’ll produce the quantities you want kept on-hand using the most efficient production lines and methods, and we’ll store them in ready-to-ship quantities.  Turnaround that requires two to three weeks at most compounders takes less than a week at Primex Color, Compounding & Additives.  Who says you can’t be flexible AND fast!
