PHS tools up to offer Rehrig crates

PHS Teacrate, the supplier of returnable transit packaging, has invested in tooling from Rehrig Pacific to manufacture its trays for the UK and European markets.

Purchasing the tooling equipment to produce Rehrig crates follows on from the American-based company’s decision to focus its marketing outside Europe.

PHS commercial director Gordon Philip said: “This significant tooling investment enables PHS Teacrate to provide retailers with even greater supply chain efficiencies by allowing them to source all their RTP requirements from one single supplier.

“In the past there have also been some difficulties in obtaining supplies of some Rehrig crates but with us acquiring the tooling to make the crates, these problems should be a thing of the past.
