Green and Clean for Over 20 YearsSociety is becoming more environmentally conscious with an increased emphasis on preserving, protecting and sustaining the environment. Sustainability has become more than just a green buzzword; it’s now a movement. Amatech has been at the forefront of the environmental benefits of using returnable, reusable packaging since the company was founded in 1990. Owner and creator of Amatech, Dave Amantangelo, believed in prolonging the life cycle of a box on an environmentally, economic and financial level for customers.

Amatech’s Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs) have the ability to be used for multiple uses and that’s what Amatech has done for its customers.Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!Reducing environmental waste means looking for ways to reduce material used in our products, reusing products whenever possible, and recycling when the product’s useful life is over.

Why is Polyurea becoming popular in the packaging industry? Waterproof Abrasion Resistant Does not crack Does not lose its physical properties Adds durability to cross link foams Slows down the color fading process for UV stable…
Did you know that one returnable box could replace over 100 cardboard boxes? Not only can we help a company reduce their carbon footprint, returnables can also keep the production lines clean. During Amatech’s design process, we take in account the lines that the packaging is being used. Just like how you figure out a line process, the packaging can be part of the time process. With returnable packaging you can eliminate not only all the cardboard but also any protective films or plastic bags that you would have to just put in the dumpster. Returnables can be a big part of cost savings and help everyone keep a clean line and work space environment. Cardboard is not only environmentally unhealthy but also can be a harbor of mold! Mold is known to cause respiratory problems, common allergic reaction symptoms, nervous-system disorders and depression. For those that are sensitive to molds, it can cause nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye…
