Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies, Inc. (AERT)

Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies, Inc. (AERT) is an innovator in the use of recycled polyethylene plastic in the manufacture of composite building materials. The company has been widely recognized as a leader in resource conservation innovation. AERT received the EPA Award for Environmental Excellence for its process of converting scrap plastic to composite outdoor decking. AERT has its corporate headquarters in Springdale, Arkansas.

The company was established in 1988 by the Brooks family and associates of Springdale. It was formed to develop a new technology for combining recycled wood fiber and recycled polyethylene plastic to form a highly durable, non-toxic, termite resistant engineered composite building material. In 1989, AERT's first manufacturing facility was opened just outside of Junction, Texas.

AERT operates manufacturing facilities in Springdale and Lowell, Arkansas and in Watts, Oklahoma. It converts reclaimed plastic and wood fiber waste into quality outdoor decking systems, fence systems, and door and window components.

In 2007, the company completed the building of a new extrusion facility, Springdale South, beside the existing Springdale, Arkansas plant. In 2010, a new recycling facility in Watts, Oklahoma was commissioned. Recycled polyethylene sales started for the company in 2012.

AERT is the exclusive manufacturer of ChoiceDek® decking. ChoiceDek® is available in numerous colors. ChoiceDek® is the only decking product that can be installed on or in the ground or underwater. It is 95 percent recycled material and promotes a natural weathering process.

AERT also has its MoistureShield® decking products. MoistureShield® decking and accessories are made with 38 percent post-consumer recycled content; 57 percent pre-consumer recycled content; and 95 percent total recycled content. AERT's advanced 70,000 square-foot plastic recycling facility washes, cleans, and separates polyethylene food packaging and wrapping films for the raw materials in its decking products.

Net Sales for Q4 of 2015 were $17.1 million. This represents an increase of $3.1 million or 22 percent from $14 million in Q4 of 2014.
