IFCO Systems has opened its newest reusable plastic container (RPC) Service Center in Fresno CA. The 200,000-square-foot facility is equipped to wash, sanitize, and dry more than 95,000 RPCs per day, and ship and receive approximately 120 truckloads of RPCs for IFCO’s grocery retail partners and grower shipper customers weekly.
The Fresno service center currently has more than 80 employees and is designed to allow expansion as the RPC business continues to grow.
“We are pleased to open our most advanced facility to date in Fresno, complete with the latest food safety systems and sustainable operations. Our growth during the past few years has demanded the expansion of our service center network so our grower and retailer partners have all the safe and clean RPCs they need to serve their customers,” said Dan Walsh, president of IFCO North America.
The new facility is IFCO’s sixth US service center, extending the company’s network in North America in support of the continued expansion of RPC use by grocery retailers throughout the United States and Canada. Its other service centers are in San Antonio TX, Rancho Cucamonga CA, Atlanta GA, Portland OR, and Chicago IL.
A unit of part of Brambles Limited, IFCO owns and operates 49 service centers in 19 nations. For more information and a video tour of the RPC service centers and wash process, go to www.rpcresource.com.
