Polymer Logistics to launch two new wash and distribution facilities in US

LBR Staff Writer Published 11 February 2016


Polymer Logistics is set to open two new wash and distribution facilities in Northern Illinois and Coastal Georgia, US.

The new centers, which are expected to be fully operational in the third quarter of this year, will help the company to meet customer demand for its crates and other transport packaging assets.

The firm already operates three similar facilities in Salinas and Riverside, California, as well as San Antonio, Texas. According to the company, each of the new service centers is expected to create around 100 jobs.

Polymer Logistics North American sales vice-president Tony Mosco said: “With the continued Walmart roll-out of our new wood grain RPCs in 2016, Polymer Logistics is expanding the number and geographic reach of our wash and distribution facilities to meet increased demand for our products.”

Produced by Denmark’s Bruel Systems, the new wash lines use a spin-dry mechanism that delivers enhanced results in the drying of washed crates. The washing capacity of each line is around 5,000 reusable plastic containers (RPCs) per hour.

Polymer Logistics USA COO Danny Bartal said: “The multimillion dollar investment by Polymer Logistics on the new Bruel machines will provide state-of-the-art tunnel washers that have advanced drying and collapsing capabilities, as well as the latest safety features for customers and employees.”

Polymer Logistics provides its customers with a wide range of returnable transport, storage and display products such as collapsible bins, folding, nesting and stackable crates, as well as reusable dollies and pallets.
