Celebrating over two decades of experience in his chosen field, Mr. Buchberg serves as the visionary inventor and founder of GreenDustries Corporation, DBA American Pleating Technologies. Since 2006, he has found success as the inventor of over 250 patents, all of which have encompassed a myriad of advances in technology and have innovated various industries.
Mr. Buchberg has most recently distinguished himself with the invention of the PleatPak, an innovative, superior and leading environmentally responsible packaging that allows food to be enjoyed in a clean, form-fitting and practical manner while providing a new and pleasant consumption experience and reduce GHG emissions vs. all other food service and QSR packaging. The PleatPak is cost effective, operationally sound and affords top notch portability. “Invented by a consumer for consumers with sustainability in mind”, the PleatPak has garnered a wealth of accolades since hitting the global market, including from the World Packaging Organization, the French Packaging Institute, the US Foodservice Packaging Institute, the Western Foodservice and Hospitality Expo, and the International Restaurant and Foodservice Show. Furthermore, Mr. Buchberg is most honored that the PleatPak has been endorsed by the Dogwood Alliance; a leading U.S. environmental protection nongovernmental organization, and featured by worldwide media outlets, such as the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, QSR Magazine, Restaurant News, CNN International and several French and Latin America News and dedicated TV segments. PleatPak is currently sold at the best and most prestigious venues in over 72 countries around the world.
Before embarking upon his current role at GreenDustries, Mr. Buchberg worked in numerous high-level positions throughout several industries. To wit, he served as the president and chief executive officer at BIH Inc. in Florida, the Chairperson and Chief Executive of WrapCo International NV in Curacao, the Netherlands Antilles, the President and Chief Operating Officer of AbaCo S.A. in France, specializing and serving as cross border liaison expert for the French luxury industry, consulting to brands such as Cartier and Louis Vuitton, and served as president of AkiDo Ltd. A real- estate group in Israel, beginning in 1977.
Likewise, he has consulted widely throughout the field of technology, including for the Israeli aircraft industry and with the MGA Technologies Group in France. Outside of his primary endeavors, Mr. Buchberg has also studied the wisdom of Kabbalah for many years, and at educational institutions from 1986 until 2023.
Among his most cherished accomplishments, Mr. Buchberg is particularly gratified to have played a role in the invention of perhaps the most sustainable and functional packaging conceptual technologies ever introduced to the global food service industry. In addition to its packaging technology impact, using the PleatPak that eliminates over 90% of greenhouse gas emissions when associated with comparable products, the unique, proprietary, functional, simple but ingénues and revolutionary pleating technologies promises to have utility far beyond what has currently been realized, from packaging to personal protective equipment, and beyond.
In accounting for his success, Mr. Buchberg largely credits his visionary outlook, as well for his obligation to unwearable persistence, commitment and ability to truly ‘think outside the box’ with certainty, knowing what customers are seeking. Looking toward the future, he plans to earn further distinction as an author and a global influencer.
