Agri-Plastics Man­u­fac­tur­ing has joined the Reusable Pack­ag­ing Asso­ci­a­tion and will exhibit in the association’s Reusable Pack­ag­ing Pavil­ion at PACK EXPO in Las Vegas this year.

Agri-Plas­tics Man­u­fac­tur­ing is a diverse rota­tional mold­ing com­pany with very large and small equip­ment. Its reusable solu­tions include cus­tom OEM com­po­nents mold­ing, pro­pri­etary ATV cargo con­tain­ers, pro­pri­etary agri­cul­tural prod­uct lines, and a full line of bulk mate­r­ial han­dling con­tain­ers with 136 dif­fer­ent models.

“We joined the RPA because the Asso­ci­a­tion shares our inter­est in expand­ing the reusables mar­ket,” said Dar­ren Van Buuren, vice pres­i­dent, Agri-Plastics. “We hope that, through syn­er­gies with fel­low mem­bers, our unique reusable offer­ings and our com­pany will become more broadly rec­og­nized in this field.”
