Rotational molder Meese Orbitron Dunne Co. is offering its Ship Shape bulk forklift containers made from 100 percent recycled polyethylene from its internal scrap.
The Ashtabula-based company has invested in reprocessing lines at each of its four rotomolding factories to reuse its excess and scrap material. Meese Orbitron Dunne officials said the equipment was added in anticipation of the current high resin prices.
As a result, Meese Orbitron Dunne offers the 100 percent recycled bulk containers at a reduced price.
The company gives customers a choice of Ship Shape containers with all recycled content, all virgin resin or a blend of both.
Meese Orbitron Dunne is the 17th largest rotomolder in North America, with sales of $32.8 million in 2007, according to Plastics News' ranking.
