The number of exhibitors at this year’s RPA Reusable Packaging Pavilion is now up to 30 member companies with the addition of U.S. COEXCELL and Interplast as new members to the Reusable Packaging Association.
With a manufacturing facility in Lolita, Texas, 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. The World-Pak division, which includes IntePro® (corrugated plastic), is the market leader with several new applications for Intepro® and also leads the industry in product development, according to the company. Inteplast reclaims all waste from extrusion and other related processes for reuse.
“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.
U.S. COEXCELL produces its 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 company stresses that the superior storage, shipping, and material handling efficiencies of the N55 make it the low cost container of choice while helping to provide for a green today and a greener tomorrow. The design and quality of the materials used in its construction give the drum a lifetime of over 14 years.
“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 & Marketing, COEXCELL.
Each year at PACK EXPO, the RPA and its members exhibit in the Reusable Packaging Pavilion, a one-stop resource for show attendees to get complete information about reusables. The exhibitors include manufacturers, material suppliers, providers of washing and other specialty equipment, and poolers and service providers of reusable packaging systems and solutions. This year, the RPA Pavilion will be in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center with nearly 12,000 square feet dedicated exclusively to RPA member products and services.
