Replacing corrugated boxes with ROPAK™ reusable containers helped Interface Flooring Systems of West Point, Georgia, improve not only its material handling operations, but the appearance of its plant as well.

Interface Flooring Systems, one of the world’s largest commercial carpet manufacturers with annual sales of more than $1.3 billion, selected ROPAKs with two solid sidewalls and two drop doors. The stackable ROPAK containers serve as their own pallets, and include 4-way lift truck entry for easy handling.

“Although we store only about 700,000 pounds of yarn, we actually handle about 17 million pounds a year, and most of that gets handled two or three times,” said Don Ellison, Interface’s warehousing and backwinding manager. “There are lots of opportunities for container problems or damage, but we just haven’t experienced any with these new ROPAK containers. The durability has been very good.”
