Effective the beginning of June 2020, Tosca and Polymer Logistics are now officially doing business as one stronger Tosca organization in North America. Migrating the Polymer Logistics brand to Tosca allows the company to simplify operations for customers, while also offering even more products and greater supply chain efficiencies.
The new combined organization is now the largest RPC pooler in North America offering an enhanced product portfolio and the most extensive service center network for grocery retailers and suppliers. While these enhancements are available immediately, there are other updates that will be introduced over the next 6-12 months, such as migrating the Polymer website and launching an enhanced online ordering tool for customers. In addition, the Polymer brand in the UK, continental Europe, and the rest of the world will transition over the course of the next couple of months.
Susan Heil, CMO of Tosca, is excited to announce the brand update, “These two companies bring together 85+ years of combined experience delivering efficient, reusable packaging solutions to the global marketplace. By combining under one brand, we are one stronger partner which allows us to continue to propel the reusable revolution.”
Tosca acquired Polymer Logistics in December 2019, representing a major milestone in Tosca’s growth. Polymer’s customer-first mindset, deep product portfolio and history of innovation is a perfect fit with Tosca. With the strength and financial backing of Apax, Tosca’s owners, the ability to invest and drive reusable solutions globally becomes one of the major benefits for all Polymer Logistics legacy customers. This newly combined organization offers greater financial scalability, an expanding reusables portfolio, a growing global network, and improved research, development, and custom capability for all customers.
Tosca states that it is well-positioned to bring efficiencies and improvements to supply chains globally. For a higher-performing supply chain, it adds, the new Tosca is the one stronger partner to turn to.
Tosca (www.toscaltd.com) is a leading provider of reusable packaging and supply chain solutions across a diverse range of markets including eggs, case-ready meat, poultry, produce, seafood, and cheese. Its proven RPC system moves fresh product safely from source to shelf, substantially reducing shrink and labor cost, maintaining product quality, and optimizing overall supply chain efficiency for retailers, growers, and suppliers. In late 2019, Tosca acquired Polymer Logistics, expanding its geographic reach, increasing its product portfolio, and enhancing its customer offering. More recently, it acquired Contraload, the leading plastic pallet pool provider in Europe.
