PTM's Evolution in the Materials Handling

MONTERREY, MEXICO --(Marketwired - October 10, 2016) - Technology allows an evolution in processes, which in turn lets us reach new stages in the materials handling sector, just as PTM (FEMSA) has achieved using resources and knowledge to develop products that are unique in its kind.

Providing continuity to the manufacturing of products that have become solutions for its clients, PTM launches its new Fusion Pallet, which represents the evolution of its predecessor, the Ultra Pallet®.

Fusion Pallet is manufactured with aluminum inserts and weighs less than 50 pounds; it also offers greater load capacity, resistance, durability, efficiency, and versatility in the operation.

The attributes of this pallet make it the best option for packing, because it generates benefits directly related to major savings in the manufacturing, storage, and transportation processes.

PTM has not only focused its efforts on one pallet; in its search for broadening its product offering and satisfying the specific needs of diverse kinds of markets, the company has developed a series of pallets with differentiating features based on size, attributes, functionality, and type of market, among other characteristics.

The following products stand out among this new family of pallets:

-PTM Fusion Pallet 48 x 40

A pallet representing the evolution of its predecessor, the Ultra Pallet®. It is manufactured with aluminum inserts and weighs less than 50 pounds. It offers greater load capacity, resistance, and versatility in the operation.

-Ultra Pallet® 56 x 44

A pallet that facilitates the handling, transportation, storage, and protection of cans, glass, and PET containers.

-Ultra Pallet® 37 x 37/ 36 x 36

This pallet offers an excellent use of space in the operation and transportation thanks to its size. It is commonly used by the beverage sector.

- One Way Pallet

A pallet offering great resistance; it is commonly used by the food and beverage sector.

-Ultra Pallet® 1.25 x 1.05

-Ultra Pallet® 1.05 x 95

In November, the company will participate in Pack Expo 2016, the largest packaging and processing event in the world, where it will have the chance to exhibit its new products and solutions, mainly in the materials handling category.
