Arlington, Va, Feb. 29, 2012 – Flo-Pallet Inc., a provider of a new highly specialized material and manufacturing process for reusable pallets, has joined the Reusable Packaging Association. The company joined the RPA during the recent MODEX show in Atlanta.
The company’s specialized sheet molding composite material has been used in the automotive, aerospace and other industries, but this is the first time the product is available commercially as a reusable pallet. One of the benefits for the reusables industry is that the material can be reused only by specialized recyclers, eliminating its attractiveness for theft for a profit. The company is headquartered in Reed City, Michigan.
“The RPA is addressing the issue of asset loss on several fronts,” said Jerry Welcome, President, RPA. “Flo-Pallet’s insights will bring added value to our existing members, and we can help the company make inroads into the reusables market.”
“The RPA will be a great forum for us to create business opportunities and to increase our understanding of the reusables supply chain,” said Curtis Lewis, President of Flo-Pallet and the company’s Executive Representative to the RPA. “We welcome the opportunity to join this influential association that is actively shaping the reusables market.”
