RePal commences manufacturing operation in Australia


Plastic pallets manufacturer Range International has confirmed that the Cairns-based operation of its wholly owned subsidiary, RePal Australia has commenced manufacturing of commercial quantities of saleable recycled plastic products.

RePal, which currently has production lines operating in its East Java factory in Indonesia, manufactures zero waste pallets made from 100% waste plastic using its unique ThermoFusion technology process.

According to the company’s statement, the Cairns-based operation will initially focus on producing plastic planks used for fencing, garden beds and retaining walls as part of its 5-year product supply agreement with Botanic Property Group.

“All products will be manufactured using Australian sourced recycled HDPE plastic which underpins the company’s high environmental standards,” reads the statement.

“RePal continues to explore its own collection and processing of recycled plastics from the Far NorthQueensland region and in addition is in the process of applying for both an R&D tax rebate and a non-binding joint Federal/State funding grant to facilitate an expansion of its existing plant.”
