Combined companies retail design, quality and sustainability to the next level
NORTH MANKATO, Minn. -- Taylor Corporation announced today that they have joined forces with Recrylic. As one of the largest graphic communications firms in North America, Taylor works with global brands to innovatively connect them with their customers throughout their entire journey.
Recrylic is the world's first and only line of 100% certified recycled acrylic. As a company, Recrylic also provides premier, large-scale design and manufacturing of retail displays, signage, fixtures and architectural elements across a variety of industries.
“The addition of Recrylic takes our Taylor Visual Impressions business to the next level,” said Taylor Group President, Mike Robinson. “Together with Recrylic, Taylor Visual Impressions will broaden its assistance to clients to achieve their goals for innovation, design, quality, speed-to-market, cost and sustainability. Their expertise in the retail, financial, healthcare and OEM markets makes Recrylic a perfect fit with Taylor’s customer base in those same markets,” commented Robinson.
Bill McNeely Jr., President of Recrylic, reflected on the union of the two companies by stating, “My excitement in joining Taylor goes beyond the complementary capabilities that we can put to work for our respective customers. I think more about our common Minnesota roots and the respect each company has for its employees. Our two companies have strong shared values that are directly linked to our family founders, Glen Taylor and my father, Bill Sr. These will be the difference makers in what we will accomplish together.”
Both companies also demonstrate a strong commitment to sustainability, both via internal operations and by helping clients to achieve environmental goals such as greenhouse gas reduction. Recrylic® was introduced in 2022 as the first and only line of certified recycled acrylic sheets, suitable for use in a wide variety of displays, fixtures, signage, lighted elements and other applications. Made from 100% recycled material, Recrylic reduces CO2 emissions by 90% vs. traditional virgin acrylic.
Likewise, Taylor emphasizes its environmental commitment through a variety of practices, including sustainable forestry, recycling, waste reduction, water conservation and other initiatives. Twenty-six of Taylor’s production facilities have achieved Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) and/or Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (FSI) certification and the company was able to recycle more than 32,000 tons of material in 2021, representing 79% of total waste.
