Elkhart Plastics, Inc. Enters Intermediate Bulk Container Market


ELKHART, IN – Elkhart Plastics, Inc. (Elkhart Plastics) has developed a series of Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) to fit a variety of application and process uses. Using the highest-quality rotationally molded plastic components, IBCs from Elkhart Plastics offer a more affordable option than steel-cage IBC designs.

Available in 120, 220, 275, and 330 gallon sizes, Elkhart Plastics now engineers and manufactures a variety of customizable IBC options including food-safe and recyclable resins, a large range of colors, and a variety of inset logo and labeling capabilities.

Rotomolded IBCs from Elkhart Plastics can be stacked, washed, and reused and have attained independent UN DOT certification. Low-volume production as well as high-volume runs of 1,000 or more are available to better serve IBC users of all size.

Made with the same rotomolding technique as the company’s existing line of custom and off-the-shelf plastic products, the rotomolded construction of these IBCs provides excellent impact strength. They are also backed by Elkhart Plastics’ nearly 30 years of expert customer service.

“This is Elkhart Plastics’ second new product announcement this month,” said Jack Welter, CEO of Elkhart Plastics. “Paired with rotomolded plastic pallets we introduced earlier this month, these IBCs will allow Elkhart Plastics to provide our existing clients with additional product offerings and enable us to reach previously untapped markets with our products.”

Plastic pallets from Elkhart Plastics are ideal for pharmaceutical, agriculture, chemical, food processing, and material handling industries.

Welter said the company had a successful showing at the West Pack show in Anaheim, Calif., on Feb. 7-9.

“Our new IBCs and pallets were of great interest to several show attendees,” he said. “The fact that both products are American-made and environmentally friendly are distinguishing characteristics in the market.”

Intermediate Bulk Containers from Elkhart Plastics are designed and manufactured in the United States at the company’s Middlebury, Ind., Littleton, Colo., and Ridgefield, Wash., locations and shipped worldwide.
