Press release date: November 7, 2007
Reading, PA - November 7, 2007 - Remcon Plastics, Inc., a Reading, PA-based manufacturer of high-quality polyethylene materials handling products, has introduced Rollet (pronounced Roll-It), a versatile, lightweight, modular rolling cart for storage, in-process handling, and shipping applications. The announcement was made by Peter J. Connors, President of Remcon Plastics.
Connors said Rollet has gained acceptance as a returnable distribution container for the food processing, food service, beverage, logistics, manufacturing, computer, auto parts, electrical supplies, air freight and airport maintenance industries. He also said the range of custom uses for Rollet continues to grow, noting the product is ideal for rapid deployment of medical or military supplies.
"Rollet offers customers many advantages," Connors explained. "With heavy-duty polyethylene construction, Rollet is virtually impervious to damage, easy to clean, simplifies x-ray scanning in high-security environments, and eliminates injuries caused by sharp edges and corners on metal carts."
Featuring a 32- by 28-inch exterior footprint, Rollet is available in heights of 57 or 70 inches. Shelving can be quickly installed and changed to accommodate various-sized loads. Weight capacity is 175 pounds per shelf and 1100 total pounds for the unit. Doors can be locked for secure transport and storage. Rollet also can be broken down in minutes, without tools, for compact return shipment. Standard five-inch polyurethane castors assure smooth and quiet movement.
Connors said Rollet comes in several standard colors but can be custom ordered to match any color requirement. For easy identification, corporate logos can also be molded into the unit. Rollet is available with RFID capabilities and a GPS tracking option is in development.
"Rollet has been widely used throughout the United Kingdom and Europe since 2003," Connors said. Remcon acquired exclusive North American manufacturing and distribution rights earlier this year. US and European patents are pending.
