New Recobulk partner in France: Duo Emballages

Duo Emballages, a French company with a long tradition in reconditioning, has now joined the Schütz Recobulk partner programme.  The company qualified for scheme based on more than 20 years experience in IBC reconditioning as well as shared values with Schütz with regard to quality standards, environmental protection and sustainability.

After signing the Recobulk cooperation agreement, from the left: Andrea Adolf (General Manager, Schütz France), Veit Enders (Business Unit Manager EMEA, Schütz), Hervé Obaton (Directeur Général, Duo Emballages), Thierry Obaton (Directeur Général, Duo Emballages), Fabrice Fuchs (Sales Manager, Schütz France) and Roland Strassburger (CEO Schütz).

Sustainability remains a core issue in the packaging industry. According to a survey by a British market research company of leading brand owners and retailers in Germany, Great Britain, France, Italy and Spain, 62% anticipate a growing demand for sustainable packaging. Schütz has been meeting this demand for sustainable industrial transport packaging for over 30 years thanks to its own recycling system for collecting and reconditioning used IBCs.

Collected Schütz IBCs are exclusively fitted with original Schütz inner bottles and components in a globally standardized, environmentally friendly process. A Recobulk is on par with an Ecobulk in terms of safety and quality. Within the scope of a special cooperation, selected companies are licensed to manufacture Recobulk in the original Schütz quality.

Duo Emballages was founded in 1996 by brothers Thierry and Hervé Obaton in Willems near Lille. The family-owned company specialises in recycling used industrial packaging such as IBCs, plastic and steel drums. The group currently has a total factory area of 130,000 square metres, spread over four locations.

In addition to the plant in Willems, the company has branches in Arras, Compiègne and Castres.

Partner applies Schütz standards

Duo Emballages is now manufacturing the Recobulk to the same quality as Schütz – including the original UN approvals. The Duo Group is committed to fully and comprehensively adopting the Schütz uniform process standards. Compliance is regularly audited, giving customers peace of mind that they can use a Recobulk to transport their products without hesitation – regardless of whether the containers are produced by Schütz or by Duo Emballages.

Globally standardised processes for uniform quality

As with new IBCs, Schütz focused from the very start on providing the highest

quality for reconditioned IBCs, and to achieve this established the company’s own standard. Regardless of whether they are using a reconditioned Recobulk or a new Schütz Ecobulk, customers always benefit from the highest quality and safety. Both products offer identical quality and performance including UN approval for safe use – even when combined. The Recobulk offers a further environmental benefit: production of each reconditioned IBC saves around 100 kilograms of CO2 emissions compared with a new IBC!

The Recobulk by Schütz has the same standard specification as the Ecobulk – both containers are 100 per cent compatible.
