Custom Container Solutions
Containers in plastic and metal come in a variety of sizes, each with their own unique purpose. Containers for the automotive industry, for example, were originally designed to maximize space on a semi-trailer, when open and collapsed. Apart from the plastic 30 x 32 container, all other standard plastic containers have a 48” side which fits perfectly side-by-side in a semi. Then, there are automotive metal containers which are the same and designed to cube out a semi-trailer.
Alternative designs for custom container solutions
Unfortunately, standard container size doesn’t always work. Some businesses require a custom size. This is why Green Processing Company offers custom-designed plastic and metal containers. When a customer has unique specifications of a product that doesn’t necessarily suit our existing inventory, we simply construct a new mold for a custom container and set them up for mass production.
When does a custom container solution make sense?
There are some automotive parts and consumer goods that exceed the length or height of a standard container. A standard plastic container measures 78” long and 50” high usually, with the longest standard metal container being 96”. When there’s no alternative available and as a business, you don’t know how to break down a part or product to make it fit, with custom containers, you no longer need to do that. From top to bottom, let us build out an inventory accommodating your unique business needs.
How we build custom metal containers?
Custom metal container design and fabrication means there’s no limit on your container size. How we build metal containers is a process driven by the customer.
Assign up the container specification, including size, weight capacity, paint color, stenciling, and even collapsibility should you need this function. We can work with you to help determine these numbers. Metal containers can be built either wire mesh or plate. The design – including corner posts, stacking, and fork pocket openings – are all made to match OEM specifications. If you agree it to be necessary, we also offer painting in a state-of-the-art paint booth. Choose from any color, including color matching. Stenciling is custom, with no limits. Add company name and program details, as you deem it necessary.
How we build custom plastic containers?
It’s a misconception that plastic containers cannot be customizable because of the fact they use injection molding technology. When we are customizing a plastic container for a commercial client, we overcome this obstacle by allowing for extended length and extended height custom containers in a cut-and-weld solution.
Dubbed by Green Processing Company as ‘limousining containers’, we take two or three plastic containers and begin cutting them precisely according to specification. From there, we weld them together. Only durable plastic containers are chosen, ensuring the cuts are precise and in places that won’t compromise the integrity
A glimpse into our most recent custom container projects
A few examples of our custom containers include these 48 x 89 x 32 and 48 x 78 x 50 plastic containers. To assemble these, we used 48 x 62 x 34 and 45 x 48 x 50 containers respectively, working carefully with precision to deliver a final product perfectly tailored to the customer’s specification.
One of our latest metal custom container projects was this collapsible metal container, with an 11-gage steel floor and 14-gage steel walls. Fully collapsible, the containers achieved a 2:5:1 return ratio. The containers when stacked and slightly nested were durable and safe to transport. These metal containers were painted orange and stenciled in white for visibility, in accordance with customer instruction.
Custom containers like these provided solutions to commercial clients’ everyday packaging needs. If you are interested in custom container solutions in plastic or metal, or wish to have access to a vast inventory of new and refurbished packaging, please reach out to a sales representative.
