ADDISON, Ill. (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
There is a lot of unnecessary packaging equipment in landfills; mostly because it’s so hard to find a company that will repair it. Strapping tool repair and fastening tool repair are not easy to come across—especially for companies looking for quality repair with a guarantee and a few add-ons like used packaging tool buyback and loaner packaging tools.
Thanks to a major facility upgrade and a team of certified repair technicians, B2B Industrial Packaging is one of the very few industrial packaging tool providers that offer a full range of products and services to its customers.
Mike Theriault, B2B Industrial Packaging’s president and CEO said, “We are very proud of the fact that we put our clients’ needs and the environment first. This means that if we sell our clients something and it breaks a few years down the road, we have the capability to fix it for them instead of automatically just trying to sell them something new. In addition to the money that it saves our clients, there is a significant green aspect to it—less metal in landfills.”
While it may take a banana peel only about six months to fully decompose in a landfill, it will take a simple tin can at least 50 years. Because studies only go back about 60 years, no one really knows how long it will take a piece of equipment containing heavy metals to decompose. Some experts guess that it could take as long as 1,000 (or more) years.
Many heavy metals, including lead typically found in industrial equipment, are problematic environmental pollutants with well-researched toxic effects on the ecosystem. Consider that roughly 400 tons of mercury, 14,000 tons of nickel, 20,000 tons of copper, 100,000 tons of chromium and 100,000 tons of lead are disposed of in U.S. landfills every year.
The fact is that no matter how dedicated anyone is to “going green”, strapping tool repair and fastening tool repair only makes sense if the repairs are done correctly, quickly, cost-effectively and include a guarantee. B2B Industrial Packaging’s repair technicians diagnose the problem and quote the repair cost within 24 hours and then repair and return ASAP. Clients receive all the replaced parts (yet another chance to recycle).
On the rare occasion that B2B Industrial can’t fix the equipment, clients can still save money (and the environment) by buying used, reconditioned equipment from B2B Industrial Packaging. These products, which perform as well as their new counterparts, come with either a 45-day or 30-day warranty depending on the type of equipment.
“We have a growing commitment to sustainability,” Theriault said. “I know keeping equipment out of landfills may seem like a small thing, but if everyone contributes what they can, we will all be able to enjoy a healthful environment for generations to come.”
