FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 2007, Akron, Ohio — Akro-Mils, a leader in storage, organization, and transport products, introduces the new all-plastic Attached Lid Container.  Featuring extra-secure, molded HDPE hinges that snap-lock when the lid closes, this Attached Lid Container is the ideal choice for greater security in shipping, storage, or picking applications in industries such as grocery, general merchandise, manufacturing, medical, and more.  And it’s conveniently 100% recyclable without the need to separate the lid and container.
Designed for long-lasting, cost-saving performance, the 21" L x 15" W x 12" H all-plastic Attached Lid Containers also features patented interlocking fingers on lids for tight closure and secure stacking. Tie holes located in both ends of container are compatible with a variety of closures to further secure lids and provide a location for tamper-evident seals.  With up to 50 lbs. capacity, the container’s reinforced sides and corners ensure added strength for protection against breakage from loads or rough handling.  Containers nest when empty to save storage space and lower return freight costs. 
Other valuable features include a smooth interior for easy cleaning; identification areas for labels and tags; textured bottom to prevent slippage on belt conveyors; and ergonomic, molded-in handle grips for easy lifting.  The all-plastic Attached Lid Container is available in four colors (blue, gray, green, and red) to facilitate color coding of product shipments and inventory control programs.
