Macro creates a new and improved bulk container to serve as an ultra-strong harvest container in the agricultural industry.
(Fairfield – CA) – Macro has taken the popular MacroBin 32, commonly used as a harvest container for apples, peppers and avocados, and incorporated new technology to create the brand new MacroBin 32NG (New Generation). The MacroBin 32NG takes what made the original MacroBin 32 one of Macro’s most viable harvest containers and utilizes an updated design to make it more effective and durable than ever before.
Macro Plastics began in 1988, changing the agricultural industry with its innovative plastic container – the MacroBin. Prior to the MacroBin, the standard harvest container was the wood bin. Macro has continued to revolutionize the bulk container industry by listening to the needs of its customers and persistently seeking improvement. The MacroBin 32NG features newly engineered reinforced columns and feet that improve impact resistance to reduce damage during tough harvests. An original cross pattern design in the base further reduces damage by decreasing baseline deflection.
The MacroBin 32NG will be offered to growers in fully-vented and solid configurations. Drain holes have been added to the rim for easier and quicker drainage. When empty, three bins can nest in the space of two in a “clamshell” formation for greater return-trip shipping efficiency and storage capacity. Shipping and storage are further optimized with a unique interlocking foot design that allows the bins to securely stack in a straight line. The injection-molded, splinter-resistant plastic containers are manufactured with FDA-approved materials, and the smooth surfaces and rounded corners will help reduce damage and abrasions that can be caused by wood bins.
