The Company - Core Case

At our CORE, we are about Preservation

The use of wooden boxes for transporting and storing diamond core samples created a number of difficulties, which were common to many companies in the mining industry. Core Case developed new products for this task, which offered a new alternative to the market, that solves these issues and brings other benefits. Core Case’s boxes and accessories are produced in 100% recycled and recyclable plastic (Polypropylene – PP). They have an ergonomic design. They are tough, light and easy to carry. In fact, they are more durable than boxes made of wood or other materials.

They also reduce the impact on the environment by reducing reliance on wood and reducing the amount of plastic waste, by recycling it for the manufacturing of the cases.

What’s more, Core Case continues to invest heavily in technology and innovation. We are always searching for ways to make our products work better for the sector, while still having respect for the environment.

OBJECTIVE

Core Case’s objective is to preserve the planet through responsible exploration, fostering sustainability. We are committed to constantly improving our processes and developing innovative solutions in order to limit negative environmental impacts (whenever possible) and minimize the production of waste that is harmful to nature.

MISSION

Generate economic gains for members, business partners and customers through the sustainable manufacture and commercialization of plastic products for the mining segment

VISION

To be the global leader in the segment of packaging for the storage of geological drilling core samples until 2030.

VALUES

  • Quality – We want our products to be recognized for their high quality.
  • Innovation – We always intend to innovate our products in order to better meet customer needs.
  • Environment – We are committed to improve our processes and develop innovative solutions in order to limit negative environmental impacts and minimize the production of waste that is harmful to nature.

Testing and R&D Lab

Zero Waste and ISO 9001 certified Manufacturing

Core Case’s principle is to make everything from 100% recycled materials. However, the recycling process can eventually lead to a lesser quality of material, due to contaminants. In order to improve production and ensure the best quality for our customers, Core Case set up a laboratory, alongside the factory, to analyze the raw material before it enters the production line. The testing ensures that the products meet customers’ expectations, when it comes to strength and durability. We can trust that there will be no breakages, deformation or cracks, because we know the material used is up to standard.

BRAZILIAN-CANADIAN COMPANY

CORE CASE is a Brazilian-Canadian company with 13 years of existence that consolidated itself in the mining market and is present in the most important companies in the segment. The company has an office in Canada, three offices in Brazil and is in the process of expanding to other South American countries.
