Our Story

The most flexible, efficient plastic bulk packaging system available

With over 15 years delivering improved efficiency through more than 40 000 ALPALS throughout the world, we’re proud to have surpassed what we thought possible when imagining a bulk packaging system featuring only the positive aspects of FIBC’s, rigid IBC’s and traditional pallets…

After a 5-year development process, the ALPAL bulk packaging system came to life offering unmatched capacity and efficiency improvements.

During the late 90’s Johnny Thorpe’s vision was to create a bulk packaging system featuring only the positive aspects of FIBC’s, rigid IBC’s and traditional pallets.

With the ingenuity of Richard Wood and after a 5-year development process, the ALPAL bulk packaging system came to life, offering unmatched stacking capabilities, a 6:1 empty return ratio due to its collapsibility whilst at the same time maximizing payloads due to its lightweight construction.

“We had a shipment coming in from our suppliers get in an accident causing the truck to rolled over. There were 24 units with 24,000 litres of product in them on board. Thinking we had lost a days’ worth of production in lost product we were amazed to find that the Alpal had protected almost all our product and we were only unable to use two containers.”
