06.05.2019 Schütz enrolls new French Recobulk partner

Schütz, Selters, Germany, has entered into a Recobulk cooperation agreement with Duo Emballages which was founded in 1996 by brothers Thierry and Hervé Obaton in Willems near Lille, France. This family-owned company specialises in recycling used industrial packaging such as IBCs, plastic and steel drums.

As part of the Recobulk programme, collected Schütz IBCs are exclusively fitted with original Schütz inner bottles and components in a globally standardised, environmentally friendly process. A Recobulk is on par with an Ecobulk in safety and quality in the standard specification. Within the scope of a special cooperation, selected companies are licensed to manufacture Recobulk to the original Schütz quality.

Duo Emballages qualified for the Schütz Recobulk partner programme on the basis of more than 20 years of experience in IBC reconditioning as well the values it shares with Schütz with regard to quality standards, environmental protection and sustainability.

After signing the cooperation agreement, Duo Emballages is now manufacturing the Recobulk to the same quality as Schütz – taking into account the original UN approvals. Schütz equips the French partners with the necessary equipment and expertise for production as well as the original spare parts. The Duo Group is committed to fully and comprehensively adopting the uniform process standards. Compliance is regularly audited by Schütz, giving customers peace of mind in the knowledge that they can use a Recobulk to transport their products without hesitation – regardless of whether the containers are produced by Schütz or by Duo Emballages.
