The plastic processing company Paul Craemer GmbH is celebrating the 50th birthday of the Craemer plastic pallet. In 1967, Craemer received the patent for the world’s first one-piece injection moulded plastic pallet. Today, 50 years on, the German company – headquarters of the Craemer Group and specialist for Metal Forming, Plastics Processing and Tool Making – is a leading developer and manufacturer of high-quality plastic load carriers.
With over 250,000 plastic pallets rolled out across 35 logistics centres that supply the brand’s stores, Intermarché has left the rented pallet behind in favour of setting up their own plastic pallet pool - a first in France for a mass-market retailing brand.
The Craemer Group’s British injection moulding facility in Telford recently honoured its tenth anniversary with a company celebration. Around 120 people – Craemer UK staff with their partners plus fifteen guests including directors and shareholders from the German headquarters – attended the event held in a marquee on the company’s premises at the Hortonwood Industrial Estate.
The automotive supplier Johnson Controls based in Milwaukee in the US State of Wisconsin has recently presented 44 of its global suppliers with the annual awards for excellent performances. Among the recipients of the prizes awarded in Detroit: The Paul Craemer GmbH from Herzebrock-Clarholz, Germany, specialist for metal forming, plastics processing and tool making.
As one of the leading developers and manufacturers of high-quality plastic pallets, Craemer is known for its high development competence and innovative strength. At Fachpack 2015 (hall 7, stand 7-154), the company will present its latest product innovation: The CS plastic pallet, the new multi-talent.
