Meeting the huge demands on industrial packaging - smaller carbon footprint, sustainable, minimal resource input but still strength

04 March, 2014

Manufacturers of industrial packages are being hit particularly hard by price rises resulting, in part, from rising energy costs. Their containers, pallets, technical components and work-piece carriers are usually made of plastics.

Furthermore, the manufacturers need granulate for this, which is in big demand and no longer available in limitless quantities.

Steel drums facing stiff competition

31 May, 2011
