Bielomatik, a manufacturer of plastic welding systems, has become the 50th member of the Reusable Packaging Association.  Bielomatik designs and manufactures plastic welding systems used in the production of reusable plastic pallets. Its customers include RPA members ORBIS Corporation, Buckhorn Inc. and Rehrig Pacific.

“The addition of Bielomatik to our Association is significant for two reasons,” said Jerry Welcome, President, RPA. “One, we have reached a milestone of 50 member companies. Two, it demonstrates the value of the Association to our members’ suppliers and their willingness to join with us to grow the marketplace for reusable packaging solutions.”

Bielomatik is the 5th equipment supplier to join the association and strengthens the movement toward a more integrated industry association that represents suppliers, manufacturers and service providers of reusable packaging systems. The company also is the 20th new member to join the RPA in 2011. Bielomatik is located in New Hudson, Michigan.
