Why replace your plastic and / or wooden reels?

Constructed to suit any application, corrugated spools can be supplied assembled and ready to use on a fully managed Just in Time basis (subject to order volume).

Plastic spool alternative
Cardboard reels maintain the performance you would expect from wooden or plastic spools, making them a great alternative

Considerably lighter and easier to move around than traditional plywood or plastic reels, Corrispool offers greater recyclability, lighter weight and in many cases, lower cost.

Typical applications include electrical and electronic cables, plastic and heat shrink tubing, rope, string and chains, flexible extrusions and pressed electronic components.
