Reusable Pump Packaging
Busch launches environmentally sustainable initiative using reusable 100% recyclable plastic shipping crates for vacuum pumps
Busch Vacuum Solutions USA, one of the largest manufacturers of vacuum pumps, blowers, compressors, and systems, announced a new environmentally sustainable initiative for shipping their vacuum pumps using reusable, 100% recycled plastic shipping crates.
The new shipping crates support Busch’s efforts to become more environmentally sustainable throughout their supply chain. Made from high-density polyethylene 100% recycled plastic, the shipping crates withstand harsh environmental conditions while keeping the vacuum pumps secure and protected. Significant benefits include reusability and removal of corrugated boxes and shrink wrap traditionally used to ship the vacuum pumps. Eliminating disposable materials results in less waste in landfills, less pollution of the air, water, and soil, and fewer carbon emissions during the manufacturing process.
“The environmental sustainability metrics using the new shipping crates are substantial. Plus, storage and freight costs are lower due to their compact size and durability.“
The low-profile cases are ergonomic, safe to use, and faster for workers to prepare the vacuum pumps for shipment and as well as unpack.
“The new reusable crates are custom engineered, turnkey alternatives to less environmentally friendly disposable packaging for shipping our vacuum pumps.“
Conversion to the new shipping crates for all vacuum pumps manufactured in the USA is expected by early summer 2022.
