U.S. COEXCELL and Inteplast have joined the Reusable Pack­ag­ing Asso­ci­a­tion and will exhibit in the RPA’s Reusable Pack­ag­ing Pavil­ion at PACK EXPO in Las Vegas this year, bring­ing the total num­ber of exhibitors to 30.

U.S. COEXCELL man­u­fac­tures the patented N55 nestable 55-gal­lon drum that pro­vides fruit and veg­etable proces­sors “the foun­da­tion for achiev­ing true sup­ply chain sus­tain­abil­ity”, accord­ing to the com­pany. The design and qual­ity of the mate­ri­als used in its con­struc­tion give the drum a 14-year-plus life­cy­cle. “The drum’s supe­rior stor­age, ship­ping, and mate­r­ial han­dling effi­cien­cies make the N55 the low cost con­tainer of choice while help­ing to pro­vide for a green today and a greener tomor­row,” accord­ing to COEXCELL.

“The RPA rep­re­sents a group of like-minded com­pa­nies that share a com­mon under­ly­ing goal of pro­vid­ing prod­ucts and ser­vices that sup­port the three pil­lars of sus­tain­abil­ity: envi­ron­men­tal, eco­nomic, and social,” said Mark E. Wotell, vice pres­i­dent, sales and mar­ket­ing, COEXCELL.

Inteplast is North America’s largest inte­grated cor­ru­gated plas­tic extru­sion com­pany. Its trade­marked Intepro is man­u­fac­tured for reusable con­tain­ers and other appli­ca­tions in Lolita, Texas. Inteplast is a green com­pany reclaim­ing all of the waste from extru­sion and other related processes. The World-Pak divi­sion, which includes IntePro (cor­ru­gated plas­tic), is a mar­ket leader with sev­eral new appli­ca­tions for Intepro and also leads the indus­try in prod­uct devel­op­ment, accord­ing to the com­pany.

“We are pleased to join the Reusable Pack­ag­ing Asso­ci­a­tion and bring our exper­tise to the indus­try. We will con­tinue to pro­mote the devel­op­ment of new and bet­ter prod­ucts,” said Dave Sarych, national sales man­ager, Inteplast.
