Schaefer Plastics North America Set to Manufacturer a Much Anticipated ESD Reusable Bulk Bin Container

CHARLOTTE, NC, March 15th – Schaefer Plastics North America, a leader in reusable packaging systems and custom dunnage, announced today that a new bulk bin line for electronics is coming this spring. Appropriately named GROUNDER™, the new bulk bin is a much-needed product for the automotive and electronic products market. Given the surge in new EVs, this anticipated product has been a need for the past few years. While the automotive market is ripe for utilizing such a product, other industries are also seeing a rise in electronic components. Thus, the time is right for introduction to the market.

“We’ve always been a leader when it comes to reusable ESD containers and totes, SSI SCHAEFER has a long reputable history developing ESD products,” stated Andy Schumacher, Vice President of Packaging for Schaefer Plastics North America, LLC. “Now, our GROUNDER™ product line will solidify our complete ESD product offerings. Currently, we offer a full line of ESD containers, dunnage, and now, a bulk bin. GROUNDER™ comes in two footprints and ten height combinations. Schaefer Plastics will offer a collapsible option for easy return shipping and storage, which is perfect for closed-loop supply chains. Each top load bulk bin has a latched drop door that enables additional ergonomics for loading and unloading movements. We also offer side load versions that can support rigid or textile dunnage options. Our customers have asked about ESD bulk bins for many years, and starting this spring, we’ll be shipping truckloads,” continued Schumacher.

The new GROUNDER™ product line will be on display at the upcoming PROMAT trade show in Chicago, IL March 20-23, 2023. For inquiries, please contact your local Schaefer Plastics North America representative or go online at
