Fibertech Inc., a leading supplier of reusable containers and pallets, has joined the Reusable Packaging Association. The company will join 24 other members who are exhibiting in the association’s Reusable Packaging Pavilion at PACK EXPO in Las Vegas this year.

“We believe it is in the best interest of the industry and our company to inform potential customers of the environmental, economical, and social benefits of reusable packaging,” said Natalie Young, marketing director at Fibertech. “Fibertech is interested in building long-term relationships with companies that have a similar interest in using cost-effective and sustainable reusable packaging programs.”
 
“The RPA gives Fibertech a broader range of resources to expand awareness of our complete life cycle of services for reusable packaging products,” added Greg Martin, senior account manager at Fibertech. “Being a member of the RPA will help us better support the reusable packaging industry, and gives us another avenue to market our services and products.”

Fibertech FDA products are molded using 100% virgin polyethylene, and all its products are 100 percent recyclable. Its bulk containers, combo bins, carts and plastic pallets are used in numerous applications in food, pharmaceutical, agricultural, hospitality, and other industries. The company also offers recycling and maintenance and repair services for its reusable plastic bulk containers. Fibertech also reprocesses plastic materials internally, preventing those materials from entering the waste stream.
