IFCO Starts RPC Production in China
MUNICH and TIANJIN, China, May 5, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-  IFCO´s rapid growth in the Chinese market requires local production of RPCs

    IFCO SYSTEMS (, the world's leading provider of 
Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs) for fresh food, announces today the opening 
of a production facility for its Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs) in China in 
cooperation with POLYTEC GROUP. Starting in April, IFCO is localizing the 
production of its RPC model Steco 6421 in Tianjin to be used in the Chinese 
market. Steco 6421 is the most demanded RPC in China. 
    Local production offers advantages for the environment and customers
    In 2015, IFCO opened its office in China and is now experiencing rapid 
growth in the country. To best serve the market and meet the considerable 
demand, IFCO has decided to open a local production facility for IFCO RPCs 
which were supplied from Europe until now. This enables IFCO to respond more 
quickly to the needs of the local market and raises the production volume of 
the specific RPC model used in China reducing lead time significantly.
    Additionally, the local production positively impacts the footprint on the 
environment by eliminating transports from European production sites to China. 
IFCO can now react more quickly to changes in Chinese customers' needs and 
provide them with optimal support in delivering fresh food from growers to 
consumers as quickly as possible.
