Elkhart Plastics Inc., a rotational molder based in South Bend, Ind., has entered the market for intermediate bulk containers (IBC), and introduced a line of rotomolded pallets.
The company said its plastic IBCs are a more affordable option than steel-cage IBCs. The are available in 120, 220, 275 and 330-gallon sizes. Elkhart Plastics engineers and manufactures a variety of customizable IBC options including food-safe and recyclable resins, and in a large range of colors, plus a range of inset logo and labeling capabilities.
Elkhart Plastics can run low-volume IBCs as well as high-volume runs of 1,000 or more.
“Paired with rotomolded plastic pallets, these IBCs will allow Elkhart Plastics to provide our existing clients with additional product offerings and enable us to reach previously untapped markets with our products,” CEO Jack Welter said.
On the pallet side, Elkhart Plastics said its rotomolded, double-walled pallets offer longer life expectancy and lower costs than traditional wood pallets.
The pallets can serve a variety of industries, including printing, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, food processing and chemicals.
Both the pallets and IBCs can be washed and reused.
Elkhart Plastics displayed the new products at WestPack, held in Anaheim, Calif., Feb. 7-9.
