Schoeller Allibert plans to launch its AgriMax harvest and storage bin for the U.S. market this summer.
The bin holds 1,300 pounds and has a volume capacity of 49,603 cubic inches, according to the company. The bin can last more than 10 years, depending on handling.
The new product is expected to become available in July.
“It can be used for any number of vegetables (and) fruits, including but not limited to citrus fruits, stone fruits, apples, pears, and the list goes on,” said Bob Albright, vice president of sales and marketing for the U.S. “The AgriMax has superior venting while maintaining the product weight and strength. These vents allow for better airflow to keep the produce fresh longer (and provide) better control over produce temperature. Also, these enable the AgriMax to drain faster.”
Other featured attributes of the bin include compatibility with the existing market bin, with external dimensions of 47.75 inches long, 47.75 inches wide and 28.5 inches deep. In addition, there are rounded edges inside the bin to help minimize product damage.
Options are available to accommodate GPS tracking, barcoding, branding and more.
The U.S. office of Schoeller Allibert is in Goodyear, Ariz.
