Buckhorn, a manufacturer of reusable plastic packaging and material handling systems, has added the newly acquired Xytec and Combo products to its wide selection of bulk shipping containers. Buckhorn's parent company, Myers Industries, purchased the Xytec and Combo container lines from Schoeller Arca Systems Inc. North America in early March.
The Xytec line of collapsible pallet containers consists of 32 by 30 inch, 48 by 40 inch, and 48 by 45 inch footprints in various heights and styles. Xytec also includes the EL Extended Length containers and HighWall Extended Height containers. Each container system provides a range of options, including sidewall access doors, lids, identification systems, standard or heavy-duty bases, custom colors, and multiple dunnage configurations.
The collapsible intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) in the Combo line are suitable for shipping and storing large volumes of processed foods, ingredients, and other fluids. The Combo line complements Buckhorn's Citadel line of IBCs. Combo IBCs are molded of foodgrade plastic and have completely smooth surfaces to satisfy the strictest hygienic standards. They are collapsible, and space-efficient dimensions provide optimal cubing of transport systems, whether the container is set up or collapsed. They are available in four sizes to hold 270, 285, 300, and 315 gallons, respectively. Combo IBCs feature side and bottom discharge areas for quick, easy emptying. Reinforced corners and locking sides provide durability for handling. Four-way fork entry permits secure transport from any orientation. Combo products can also be used for dry products such as powders, granulate, and flakes.
In addition, Buckhorn adds the Big Box fixed wall pallet containers, as well as the handheld Stack & Nest Totes and Specialty Lugs & Pails.
