APR Allen Plastics Repair has joined the Reusable Packaging Association to help increase awareness of the value of reusables and the role of refurbished prod­ucts and container repair in sup­port­ing sustainability initiatives.

APR Allen Plas­tics Repair has been work­ing with plas­tic return­able con­tain­ers since 1985 and spe­cial­izes in refur­bished bulk boxes, con­tainer repair, mod­i­fi­ca­tion, and recy­cling. The company’s repair ser­vices are designed to extend the life of cus­tomers’ invest­ments and save them money. In addi­tion to repair, APR pro­vides con­tainer mod­i­fi­ca­tion ser­vices that allow cus­tomers to use bulk boxes that fit their needs more exactly. APR is also a full-service plas­tic recy­cling com­pany; and pro­vides a rental pro­gram for com­pa­nies look­ing for a short-term, low-investment con­tainer solution.

“We believe that the use of return­able con­tain­ers and our money– and material-saving pro­grams will help reusable pack­ag­ing become an even more cost effec­tive and sus­tain­able option,” said Dan Allen, Pres­i­dent, APR Allen Plas­tics Repair, Inc. “We appre­ci­ate that the RPA shares our view, and we are excited to join forces with other busi­nesses that serve the reusable mar­ket. By join­ing the RPA, we hope to increase our brand aware­ness and spread the mes­sage that APR saves com­pa­nies money on the reusable con­tain­ers they already buy.”
