officially opened the doors of its North America Headquarters yesterday with a ribbon cutting party, plant tour and demonstrations of their environmentally-friendly lightweight plastic board made of polypropylene. With a shelf-life of up to 400,000 uses, the future of sustainable packaging is here!
The CEO and COO of CON-Pearl NA's parent company, Friedola® TECH
, were here from their homebase in Geismar, Germany, along with their North America Team to welcome clients, vendors, and new friends from Greenville, Charlotte, Orangeburg, Michigan and beyond. United States Congressman Trey Gowdy was also there to welcome and stress appreciation for CON-Pearl's innovation and job creation to date and to come.
A little bit about their pretty amazing product. It's:
- 100% recyclable
- extremely flexible
- food grade
- thermally and acoustically insulating
- low weight
- chemical resistant
- non-corrosive and free of rotting
So far, here's what it's being used for:
- car components: floor, side and roof-linings, cavity linings, partitions and spare covers
- multiway packagings
- plastic sleeves for all common pallet and packaging systems
- packagings for machine and device parts
- stiffening, inserts and intermediate layers in vehicle construction and logistics
- lightweight cases, flight cases
- material for the building sector such as moisture insulation, a barrier against pressurised water, screening, wall and floor protection, movable partitions
- partitions and display walls
- electrostatically conductive
- can be laminated with a wide range of materials like e.g. fleece, foam, etc.
- structured, embossed board surface
- sealing of edges for hygenic applications
Something I love about the company is that they have contests inviting employees to submit new uses for the product - and with its durability and long-life, the sky really is the limit.
We're so glad CON-Pearl chose GREENville - it makes perfect sustainability sense!
