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.
