We’re leading the recycling revolution in Australia

Our founders have over 20 years’ experience in the packaging industry. Having seen the recycling industry slowly dwindle, we have a deep commitment to keep manufacturing alive in Australia so that we can support our people and our economy.

Our focus on sustainability has seen us install a solar power station onsite, become signatories of the Australian Packaging Covenant, and commit to the goals of the National Packaging Targets. With the installation of a 100,000 litre water tank, Rpak sustainably harvests all of the water necessary for their machinery cooling needs.

We’re also collaborating with Remade in Australia, an independent initiative that educates Aussies on our current recycling waste crisis, and encourages supermarket giants and fresh fruit growers to use Australian-made recyclable packaging.

Meet the Team

MICHAEL READ

Michael has established Rpak as a sustainable leader in manufacturing and packaging in Australia. Over his twenty years of service, his management of Rpak has led him to creating a cleaner future for Australians.

Andrew Looker

Operation Manager

Success for Andrew is measured by on-time supply – and over his twenty years with Rpak, his investment into machinery and automation has given Rpak a competitive advantage thanks to prompt and high-quality products.

MARINA LOOKER

Administration And HR Manager

No one knows the staff or customer better than Marina, whose goal is to ensure the happiness of both. She continually improves Rpak’s systems to increase efficiency and productivity.

NELSON CORTEZA

Extrusion Engineer

MATT ASHTON

Engineer

Matt’s skills, knowledge, and enthusiasm are invaluable to the Rpak team. Without his fast and efficient application, Rpak wouldn’t be able to maintain the high-levels of customer service and consistently timely delivery that we provide today.

Let’s remake in Australia
