Our latest patent combines with the one we previously received allows us to design a broader level of protection, and more importantly, it’s a perfect example of how we focus on supporting our customers.
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 26, 2015
Less than two months after officially patenting its unique runner design featuring a two way/four way stringer, The Corrugated Pallets Company (TCPC) announced today that it has been awarded a second patent from the United States Patent and Trade Office.
The latest patent (US 8,695,511 B2) expands TCPC’s runner design, and allows the company to manufacture corrugated runners without end flaps (also known as “end caps”). As a result, TCPC's clients can:
- Lower their costs.
- Purchase even lighter corrugated pallets that are easier to handle, less costly to ship, and reduce CO2 emissions in the supply chain.
- Rely on durability, beam strength, compression resistance and stability verified by ASTM 1185 standard racking and static tests.
“Our clients see us as their `go-to’ source for corrugated pallets,” commented TCPC’s Mike MacDonald. “And they also expect us to innovate and find new and better ways to help them save money, yet without sacrificing durability, quality or recyclability. Our latest patent combines with the one we previously received and allows us to design a broader level of protection, and more importantly, it’s a perfect example of how we focus on supporting our clients.”
In addition, as with all of TCPC’s product offerings including the company’s Patent-pending ECO Pallet Tops, clients can also efficiently close-the-gap by recycling their corrugated pallets in local OCC recycling systems when they reach the end of their usable life.
Added MacDonald: “Our clients know that improving their bottom-line and reducing their environmental footprint are not mutually exclusive. They can achieve both, plus they can demonstrate social responsibility to their employees and customers, and leadership in their communities.”
