Container Manufacturer Reveals Most Popular Color of 2015

At MODRoto, Royal Blue Is Top Choice Among Material Handling Buyers

Madison, IN: Serenity blue may be a Pantone 2016 “Color of the Year” but instead of setting the trend, the color experts may be following what material handling managers have known and demonstrated for years, and confirmed again this week. The most popular color of 2015 is Royal Blue. According to a new report from plastics rotomolder MODRoto, Madison, IN (, Royal Blue ranks as the year’s most popular color based on total units purchased for the company’s line of Ship Shape bulk containers, laundry carts and recycling carts. The report revealed that Royal Blue earned approximately 50% of unit sales while Black and Forest Green, popular among recycling managers, were the runners-up.

MODRoto offers a wide selection of Pantone colors as standard and offers an even wider range of custom colors for large quantity orders to coordinate with corporate colors, and support brand imagery. “Our Royal Blue and Powder Blue are very close to Pantone Serenity blue and they’re available as standard colors,” says MODRoto President and COO J.R. Ryan, who notes an uptick in the selection of bright, custom colors this year. “There’s a growing realization that our containers and carts can provide a very visible marketing platform for our customers.”

MODRoto is ranked as the 16th largest rotational molder in North America by Plastics News. The company operates four rotational molding facilities across the United States that are strategically located with two on the East and West Coasts and two in the Midwest for quick shipments and low cost freight.
