Polymer Logistics, Riverside, Calif., celebrated the grand opening of its Dublin, Ga., service center, which was first announced in May 2016. Strategically located with easy access to Interstates 16 and 75, the service center will support the company’s rapidly growing customer base in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic states.

This facility will provide reusable plastic container (RPC) pooling, sanitizing and redistribution logistics.

“Polymer Logistics is the industry innovator and a global leader in retail-ready reusable packaging. For example, we pioneered the design and launch of wood grain RPCs and display units, which have been recognized for their ability to increase fresh produce sales,” says Fred Heptinstall, chief executive officer. “In addition, we provide a full line of RPC solutions that support profitable retail growth across a broad range of categories and channels. The Dublin service center supports our expanding geographic reach, volume growth and ongoing commitment to delivering outstanding customer service.”

The Dublin service center incorporates the latest technology for energy conservation, product handling and high-capacity reusable transport container washing, sanitizing and drying. The state-of-the-art tunnel washer provides advanced spin-drying and folding capabilities, as well as the latest worker and food safety features for customers and employees. The facility, built by Dublin Construction, Dublin, Ga., also boasts high efficiency lighting, variable frequency drivers and compressors to manage energy consumption and thermal insulation on water and stem pipes to maintain temperature and reduce energy use.
