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.
Bolton Council embarked on a project to replace its residents' 240-litre residual waste bins with ones that were 100 litres smaller, saving money in the process and turning the old bins into the new ones along the way, as CIWM editor, Ben Wood, reports.
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.
At IMHX in Birmingham (13 - 16 September 2016), Craemer UK will present the CS pallet, the latest addition to the plastic pallet portfolio. The new CS plastic pallet is available in euro and industrial size and rounds off the existing product range. With their welded runners, CS plastic pallets deliver a particularly convincing performance in automated warehouse systems. The almost completely closed top deck facilitates easy handling of bagged goods, cardboard packaging, and other packed goods.
