PPS, a supplier of returnable packaging services, has recently announced that GW Containers, a specialist in plastic fish boxes and insulated containers, has joined the group. 

GW Containers is the sole UK distributor for the Sæplast insulated containers and the RPC Promens fish box range. In partnership with Sæplast and RPC Promens the company is said to be the UK's leading supplier to the fishing industry and animal by-products industry in addition to supplying preferred products in meat, vegetables, battery recycling, waste and food processing.

Currently PPS offers the delivery, collection, asset tracking, washing, rental and repair of returnable equipment. It also sells a wide range of returnable packaging via Alison Handling, which joined the group 18 months ago.
