Roberts PolyPro’s innovative semi-automatic handle applicator is a solution for companies looking to cost effectively increase market penetration. The machine lowers risk in terms of capital costs when brand owners and contract packagers are expanding production to serve new markets.
Roberts PolyPro has developed a new two-pack bottle handle that decrease materials sourced and increases pallet utilization. The overall source reduction translates into a 26% lower cost for these new HDPE handles designed for carrying two-gallon jugs of refrigerated product.

Not all multipacks are created equal—neither from a consumer nor a production standpoint. Depending on a company’s resources, desired throughput, and marketing goals, choosing the multipack style best suited to an operation can mean the difference between a profitable venture and a multipack misstep that doesn’t deliver the desired return, according to a new White Paper from Roberts PolyPro.
