Black Forest Container Systems has joined the Reusable Packaging Association to strengthen its outreach on the benefits of reusable packaging. The company will exhibit in the RPA’s Reusable Packaging Pavilion at PACK EXPO Las Vegas, bringing the total number of exhibitors to 32.

Located in Greenville, SC and founded in 2000, Black Forest Container Systems is one of the leading distributors in North America of closed loop custom equipment and multi-trip stainless steel packaging systems.

“We became a member of the RPA to join with other experts in the field to promote reusable packaging benefits. Reusable containers are cost efficient and significantly impact the bottom line,” said Jeff Balck, co-owner of BFCS. “In addition, reusable, multi-trip containers are good for both our customers and the environment.”

“Our expertise and experience in multi-trip packaging systems have been our commitment to the environment, our customers, and the industries we serve for over 13 years,” added Tom Leftwich, co-owner of BFCS. “Informing and teaching about the benefits of reusable containers has made us what we are today.”
