“The D-Net 8000 is a unique extruded netting. The pattern and feel make it a great alternative netting for everything from stone fruit to citrus,” said Tony O’Driscoll, vice president of sales and marketing at Sev-Rend. “The current market is very dynamic. We see the growth of consumer packs because they allow retailers to cut costs while achieving higher price points. To sustain this trend, packers and retailers are looking for options. The addition of an innovative product line like the D-Net 8000 to the Sev-Rend product family enables us to offer our customers what they need to be successful.”

The Intermas D-Net 8000 is a flat tubular netting that falls in the extruded category. It is known for its high-yield packaging, which can use less material per package and is available in three standard colors: red, yellow and green. These colors come readily available in the standard sizes of 22, 25 and 27 centimeters with additional sizes along with colors available upon request.

Intermas Nets USA Inc. is a member of the Intermas Group of Barcelona, Spain, and a world leader in the manufacturing of netting for a wide variety of applications. Founded in 1957, Intermas operates throughout North America and Europe.
