Flo-Pallet, a provider of a new highly spe­cial­ized mate­r­ial and man­u­fac­tur­ing process for reusable pal­lets, has joined the Reusable Pack­ag­ing Asso­ci­a­tion. The com­pany joined the RPA dur­ing the recent Modex show in Atlanta.

The company’s spe­cial­ized sheet mold­ing com­pos­ite mate­r­ial has been used in the auto­mo­tive, aero­space and other indus­tries, but this is the first time the prod­uct is avail­able com­mer­cially as a reusable pal­let. One of the ben­e­fits for the reusables indus­try is that the mate­r­ial can be reused only by spe­cial­ized recy­clers, elim­i­nat­ing its attrac­tive­ness for theft for a profit. The com­pany is head­quar­tered in Reed City, Michi­gan.

“The RPA is address­ing the issue of asset loss on sev­eral fronts,” said Jerry Wel­come, Pres­i­dent, RPA. “Flo-Pallet’s insights will bring added value to our exist­ing mem­bers, and we can help the com­pany make inroads into the reusables mar­ket.”

“The RPA will be a great forum for us to cre­ate busi­ness oppor­tu­ni­ties and to increase our under­stand­ing of the reusables sup­ply chain,” said Cur­tis Lewis, Pres­i­dent of Flo-Pallet and the company’s Exec­u­tive Rep­re­sen­ta­tive to the RPA. “We wel­come the oppor­tu­nity to join this influ­en­tial asso­ci­a­tion that is actively shap­ing the reusables market.”
