The ECOtech foldable container in the spotlight
16. March 2011 The ECOtech foldable container in the spotlight After the innovative foldable container ECOtech has recently been voted “Product of the Year 2011”, it was now time for the award ceremony at SSI Schaefer, Neunkirchen.
Our engineers did an outstanding job developing the ECOtech. We are therefore happy to see this container get the appreciation it deserves. It won the award in the category storage and transport systems because the jury recognised its design, innovation and functionality.
The association had summoned 13 experts to judge all the contestants and they finally voted in favour of the ECOtech container. Ralf Olsen, director of pro-K, was pleased to come in person to present SSI Schaefer with the award certificate.
SSI Schaefer offers this foldable container in two versions, either with closed side walls or with one or two display flaps on the front side. With these flaps, access to the content is possible even when the containers are stacked.
Another notable characteristic of the ECOtech is the reduction in volume when folded down. It amounts to about 80% and the folding is done quickly, safely, and without sequential order.
These obvious advantages make this new container a great choice for a number of applications in industry, trade and services. In addition, it is suitable for automation and can be used in an automated small parts storage system with conveyor technology.
There was a general consensus that the ECOtech foldable container by SSI Schaefer represents a convincing and innovative improvement over existing storage and transport systems.
