Asia Plastics Recycling Holding Ltd (APR, 亞塑再生) yesterday said it plans to begin selling products on China’s e-commerce platforms in the next five years.
APR, which recycles used plastic scrap to make ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam in China, provides materials used for making shoes, water sports utilities, air conditioner parts, packaging and filtering products.
APR said it hopes to reach more potential customers by launching e-commerce services and expanding its sales channels.
“Given uncertainties in the development of new channels, we are now seeking collaborations with existing Chinese e-commerce operators instead of directly operating e-commerce platforms,” spokesman Mark Hsueh (薛又瑋) told an investors’ conference. [FULL STORY]
