CON-Pearl NA, a provider of high-quality plastic sleeves for sleeve packs, has joined the Reusable Packaging Association and will exhibit in the association’s Reusable Packaging Pavilion at PACK EXPO Las Vegas.

“We joined the RPA because it represents the companies that are leading the way for reusables,” said Paul Kearns, Sales and Marketing Manager, CON-Pearl NA. “Its members represent not only suppliers, but also users of reusables. This diverse membership is important in order to appreciate some of the complexities and challenges that come with converting from consumables to reusables. We believe that being a member of the RPA will help us get connected with those seeking reusables and with partners who can help advance the use of reusables.”

Developed in Germany, CON-Pearl sleeves are made from a tri-laminate of polypropylene and have uniform strength properties in each dimension. The connected pearls of the middle layer are designed to provide outstanding strength and durability of the sleeve. From its location in Greenville, the company strives to bring the economical and ecological benefits of plastic sleeve packs to the NAFTA markets.
