Polymer Logistics NV has named Fred Heptinstall as CEO of its North America business, effective July 1.
“The RPC [reusable plastic container] business in the United States is a very strategic part of Polymer Logistics and its growth plans over the next several years. The addition of Fred Heptinstall is another sign of our continued commitment to our growing business," said Gideon Feiner, CEO of Dongen, the Netherlands-based Polymer Logistics, in a statement.
Heptinstall previously worked at IFCO Systems, Chiquita Brands International and Mars Inc. While president of IFCO, Heptinstall helped expand the RPC industry in North America, the company said.
“In the last two years, Polymer Logistics has introduced the wood grain RPC and expanded into new categories, and now is investing in two new state-of-the-art wash facilities to provide coverage throughout the continent. It's a very exciting time to join the company,” said Heptinstall in a statement.
