All about Viscount Plastics (NZ) Ltd
From a plastics moulding pioneer of the 1960's to taking a lead in the 'greening' of materials handling and packaging in New Zealand, Viscount Plastics has a long history of innovation.
At a time when New Zealand producers could not see beyond wooden fruit and vegetable boxes, Viscount Plastics – Reese Plastics as it was then – developed, produced and marketed Recrate, an all-plastic returnable stacking bar crate. It was not only producers who sat up and took notice, overseas materials handling businesses showed a keen interest. In the early 1990's Australia-based Viscount Group purchased a majority shareholding.
This capital investment saw newly named Reese Viscount build and equip in Auckland one of New Zealand's most advanced and environmentally responsible plastics manufacturing plants. Out through its ISO9000 doors came such company-developed innovations as in-mould decorative labelling and food service plastic pails with patented tamper evidence 'lift tabs'.
The purchase of Viscount Group in 2001 by global packaging and supply chain solutions conglomerate LINPAC Group ushered in new opportunities and benefits for Viscount Plastics' New Zealand customers.
Whilst plastics manufacturing, particularly rigid-walled packaging, remains a core company activity, Viscount Plastics is increasingly utilising strong international partnerships to source, bulk buy and hold in stock plastic materials handling products for immediate supply to customers at highly competitive prices. All rigid sided and foldable bins, pallets, retail bins, and produce and security crates available from Viscount Plastics support our commitment to taking a lead roll in the 'greening' of materials handling and packaging in New Zealand.
The vast majority of materials handling products available from Viscount Plastics are multi-trip (known as RTP – Returnable Transit Packaging) or multi-use, and all at the end of their service lives can be recycled as raw material for plastics production. First of its kind research now proves RTP's product carbon footprint to be much smaller than one-trip cardboard cartons. Product carbon footprint (PCF) is a measurement of Greenhouse Gas emissions over a product's life cycle and its contribution to global warming. Independent studies have shown that RTP products hold a 70% more efficient carbon footprint than similar one way cardboard packaging.
Depending on what it contains, rigid-walled packaging is capable of multi-use with all pails and containers available from Viscount Plastics suitable for recycling as plastic raw material.
