Plastics Company Opening Location in Adams Park

ADAMS, Mass. — A plastic sheet supplier and recycler is opening a new site in the Adams Corporate Park.

Optiglass PC LLC is a supplier of polycarbonate sheet and film, in association with bGreenplastic, a customized recycling service for plastic companies, both headquartered in North Carolina.

Rick Filiault, president and found of both companies, is a former account manager with GE Plastics.

Filiault said his goals is to "reawaken the foundation of plastic services in Berkshire County, and facilitate this process with passion and integrity."

"After growing up and working in Berkshire County, I felt that I needed to expand my business here, as Pittsfield is a global center of the plastic industry," he said. 

Filiault said he is dedicated to the practice of sustainability and preventing plastic from reaching landfills.

Carrie Loholdt, the manager for the business's newest site, said the expansion will only better the quality of service for both Optiglass PC and bGreenplastic.

"Because our spectrum of business is continuously growing, the move to Adams ... made sense logistically in order to serve our customers ranging from northern New Jersey up to New York and Vermont with greater convenience."

Optiglass and bGreenplastic has two sites in North Carolina and one in Massachusetts, which allows the business to more efficiently service customers, as well as sustainable procedures, said Loholdt.
