Buckhorn® expands Intrepid™ IBC product line

Added features include drop door and bottom discharge configurations

BZ484046-Bottom Drain Bulk Box Door DownMarch 21, 2016 – Milford, Ohio – Buckhorn Inc., a leading provider of reusable plastic packaging and material handling systems, is expanding its Intrepid intermediate bulk container product line, launching new features at this year’s Modex Show.

Buckhorn’s 48” x 40” Intrepid is now available with or without a drop door in top or bottom discharge configurations. The bottom discharge is designed specifically for ease of use for liquid applications, while the drop door provides better access to contents and improves ergonomics when installing a disposable liner.

The container solves many problems users experience with corrugated bins and wood pallets including leakage, shifting off the pallet during transport, debris, dust, and limited one-time use. Constructed of FDA approved material, Intrepid is reusable and 100% recyclable. It offers a smooth interior and exterior for easy cleaning. No more worrying about the splinters, nails and dust associated with corrugated boxes and wood pallets.

“We are very excited about the launch of these new products,” said Mark Gruber, National Sales Manager for IBCs at Buckhorn. “The new features allow us to expand our product offering for liquid and food handling in a footprint familiar to these industries.”

Intrepid can be used for temporary storage, work in process, incoming ingredients, shipments among plants and shipments to customers. Its heavy duty design can handle loads up to 2,500 lbs. The container’s non-sequential folding panels assemble and collapse in seconds. Intrepid is stackable with or without lids, and it offers a 3.3:1 return ratio. Up to 240 containers fit in a 53′ trailer.
