ELKHART, IN – Elkhart Plastics, Inc. (Elkhart Plastics) is excited to unveil durable and reusable plastic pallets as its newest product. Made with the same rotomolding technique as its existing line of custom and off-the-shelf plastic products, these pallets offer longer life expectancy and lower costs to traditional wood pallet users.
Plastic pallets from Elkhart Plastics are American-made at the company’s Middlebury, Ind., Littleton, Colo., and Ridgefield, Wash., locations and shipped worldwide. These double-wall pallets provide material handling solutions to a variety of industries including printing, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, food processing, and chemical-based markets.
Available with and without steel reinforcements, Elkhart Plastics offers customizable designs from the utilization of food-safe resins and recycled content to the inclusion of a raised lip or flat top and a variety of colors. These versatile pallets can be handled with both four-way forklifts and pallet jacks.
“The Elkhart Plastics team has worked diligently for months to develop a plastics-based pallet that includes the best features of its wood predecessors and goes beyond to offer additional value and customization,” said Jack Welter, CEO of Elkhart Plastics.
“Our rotomolded pallets can be stacked, racked, washed, and reused thanks to specially selected polyethylene material that offers a life expectancy of more than 10 years,” Welter said. “We know that pallets are investment; we hope to help our clients get more life and functionality out of that investment. The pallets themselves can also be recycled.”
Elkhart Plastics can design and manufacture a variety of pallet designs in low-volume production as well as high-volume runs of 500 or more.
Attendees of the WestPack show on Feb. 7-9 in Anaheim, Calif., are invited to learn more from Cullen Jones, Elkhart Plastics’ Director of New Product Development, in booth no. 4975.
