Universal Package adds container repair facility

Universal Package Systems has added a new 6,000 sq. ft. facility to meet growing demand for the company’s Universal Plus™ Clean and Repair services. With the rising cost of new bulk containers, many companies are choosing to have their bulk containers repaired, and placed back into the work flow.

The new facility has given Universal additional efficiency. The cost to repair a broken, unusable container is typically 30-50% of the cost of purchasing a new container. With the new facility, customers will generally experience a two week or less turn-around time.

Universal completely repairs and cleans virtually any reusable bulk container and backs their work with a full guarantee against defects. Arrangements are made either by the customer or by Universal to transport all broken containers to Universal’s Dale, Indiana facility.
