We specify the products in our systems to last the length of your program, about five to seven years. We know how to spec for durability in customized systems.

What happens to damaged containers?

We replace or refurbish containers damaged by improper handling, replacing damaged components before returning containers to service.

Do you clean containers?

We can clean your returnable packaging units every time they cycle through the system or according to a schedule. RPR’s self-enclosed washing system cleans, rinses and dries vacuum-formed trays, pallets, bulk contains and hand-held totes.

We evaluate component vulnerabilities during our evaluation of your parts, supply chain and material handling requirements. We choose the materials and returnable packaging tech that gives you the best, most cost-effective protection.

As engineers, we solve problems and document our recommendations and results. Our only allegiance is to our customers’ needs and our technology suppliers support this.
