RPP Containers Introduces New DuraGreen Plastic Gaylord

RPP Container

RPP Containers, a leading manufacturer, stocking distributor, and recycler of plastic collapsible bulk containers, has introduced the new DuraGreen® Plastic Gaylord, a heavy-duty, steel-reinforced, reusable plastic bulk container built to handle the pressure of flowable materials.
