Our Jumbo bin is a more reliable, sustainable and profitable plastic alternative to the wooden bin traditionally used in the agricultural industry, and is considered by many to be the best quality bulk bin in the world, available at the lowest possible cost.
It was introduced in North America and Australia 20 years ago and has been in great demand ever since, particularly in the fruit industries of those regions, where it has become virtually the only bin used.
