October was a busy month for us here at BloApCo, bookended by two of the industry’s largest trade shows starting off with SuperCorrExpo in Atlanta, Georgia, and then PackExpo at the end of the month in Chicago, Illinois. We exhibited our scrap and waste handling systems at both conferences.
SuperCorrExpo brought in approximately 300 exhibitors, presenting cutting-edge technologies and opportunities to leverage in the global corrugated industry. As always, it’s a great time for us to meet colleagues, learn, and ultimately display our one-of-a-kind shredder products for old corrugated containers (OCCs). Our popular horizontal floor shredder is unrivaled for performance and reliability. Our piggyback shredder comes in a range of types, sizes, and configurations. We also have warehouse shredders, made larger to lower our customers’ haul-away costs. We were able to present both the operational benefits and cost-savings that our range of products achieves in distribution.
At PackExpo, attendees were particularly interested in our trim removal and trim cutter products. We have over 80 years of experience working with the converting and packaging industries, so over time we’ve adapted our components to provide an integrated scrap and trim removal system that our customers love. Precision trim cutters, material handling fans and shredders operate together for maximum efficiency. Our scrap removal systems are suitable for paper, plastic, film, and corrugated materials. Conveying systems (bale transfer units, diverters, materials separators) and dust collectors can be incorporated as well.
And, speaking of our years of experience, watch this space for news of our 80th anniversary celebration, and more industry updates to come!
