ORBIS Europe, manufacturer of returnable plastic packaging, and the pooling company RECALO (Germany), agree on partnership

ORBIS Europe develops and produces durable plastic transport packaging. Their large load carriers and pallets are suitable for various industrial sectors, above all the automotive industry, and ensure long-term cost savings and CO2 reduction.

The products stand for robustness and sustainability through innovative manufacturing processes and 100% recyclability of raw materials. ORBIS is part of Menasha Corporation, the third oldest family-owned manufacturing company in the United States with more than 170 years of experience in returnable packaging.

Today, the company has more than 5,500 employees at locations in Europe, the United States, Mexico and Canada. ORBIS has represented Menasha Corporation in the EMEA region since 2016.

Jürgen Krahé, Senior Commercial Director at ORBIS Europe, says: “We are very happy to have found a new partner who represents our values.

Together with RECALO, we can offer our customers additional benefits – regardless of whether they want to rent the load carriers or make use of the entire portfolio of RECALO pooling services.”

Foldable large load carriers such as the GitterPak® are made mostly of recycled material and can be completely recycled at the end of the product life cycle and are returned to the raw material cycle for repeated load carrier production.

Arash Ranjbar, CEO of RECALO GmbH, says: “The supply agreement as basis of the partnership with ORBIS strengthens our position as a renowned and well-recognized pooling and logistics service provider.

We are excited about integrating a new returnable load carrier named GitterPak® to our pooling assortment and about providing our services to new industries and clients outside the FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) and food industry like Cooper-Standard Holding Inc. by meeting their specific wishes and needs.”

Cooper-Standard is a leading materials science and manufacturing expert headquartered in Northville, Mich. USA. Present in 21 countries and with a global team of 25,000 employees, they develop materials, systems and components for a wide range of diverse markets.

Cooper-Standard is synonymous with innovation from materials science to finished product, reinventing boundaries to deliver sustained value for stakeholders and the global industries they serve.

“We delight in having Cooper-Standard as customer, able to deliver meaningful and demand-driven pooling value to them through our divers service portfolio,” Arash Ranjbar says, by signing of the supply agreement.

Within the framework of a long-term service contract up until 2027, the pooling company RECALO supplies locations of the Cooper-Standard Holding Inc. in Europe with several thousand large load carriers of the type GitterPak®.

Regarding the advantages created by this strategic partnership, customers like Cooper-Standard benefit from added value and the interaction of service- and product-worlds of both partnered companies.
