PakTech is the leading producer of 100% recycled and recyclable secondary packaging. Founded in 1991, they are a family-owned and operated business and headquartered in Eugene, Oregon. PakTech’s commitment to quality is paralleled by its commitment to the environment. They are dedicated to bringing the highest quality packaging to the market with the least environmental impact. PakTech handles are made with 100% recycled HDPE resin such as recycled milk jugs and similar unpigmented containers. Since using recycled HDPE, PakTech has repurposed over a half billion recycled milk jugs into packaging handles. This has kept over 65 million lbs. of plastic out of the waste stream and saved 25 acres of land from being used as landfill waste. This year alone PakTech is on track to repurpose approximately 140M milk jugs, which represents a 37% increase over the prior year.
Second life PakTech handles are also reusable and 100% recyclable. When PakTech handles are recycled, they often see a third life as composite lumber, flower pots, park benches, new PakTech handles, and more. PakTech carriers feature a minimalistic design. While other secondary packaging options wrap and surround products, PakTech carriers snap at the top letting the product shine for itself using the least amount of material. PakTech also offers automated application versatility. You can apply the handles by hand or you can utilize their automated applicators ranging in speed from 120 cans per minute to over 1500 cans per minute. PakTech focuses on a sustainable approach by applying the reduce, reuse and recycle concept across every business decision. This means that sustainability is not merely a guiding principle but truly underpins the whole production cycle of PakTech’s packaging solutions.
