New Way Transfers K-PAC Compactors Business to Plum Creek Environmental

Companies will continue to partner to offer customers a complete waste solutions package.


Scranton, IA — New Way announces it has transferred ownership of the K-PAC Compactors business to Plum Creek Environmental. The decision to divest K-PAC Compactors was made to focus manufacturing operations on refuse collection vehicles and align with increasing demand.

Plum Creek Environmental, based in West Point, MS, is a manufacturer of waste and recycling containers and equipment and has been noted as one of the fastest growing companies in the solid waste industry. The K-PAC Compactors brand will be added as a premium product line to the company’s compactor division. 

“The sale of K-PAC aligns with our commitment to optimize our core business and allocate resources more effectively toward our growth strategy with refuse collection vehicles,” said New Way Chief Sales Officer Don Ross. “Plum Creek Environmental is a top notch, reputable company and K-PAC Compactors will be a good fit with their other premium product lines.”

Along with allowing New Way to dedicate efforts to streamlining and expanding production of refuse trucks at its facilities in Scranton, IA and Booneville, MS, this transition of K-PAC to Plum Creek Environmental – an expert in waste containers and compactors – will help better serve customers. The companies will continue to partner to offer a complete waste solutions package. 

“We are excited to partner with New Way and carry on the outstanding reputation of K-PAC Compactors.” said Plum Creek partner Andrew Wamble. “The acquisition of K-PAC is indicative of our commitment to expanding our PLUM-PAK line of waste compactors. This acquisition expands our comprehensive lineup of highly engineered compaction equipment to our valued customers."
