PACKAGE DEVELOPMENT CO. DEVELOPS NEW PUSHER DISPLAY SYSTEM
Earlier this year Package Development Company, Inc. developed and patented a new style pusher tray that is a major alternative to the current permanent shelf injection molded pusher displays. The benefits of this new pusher display is not only cost in materials but since our pushers nest (or stack) it saves on storage, trucking, warehousing, cartons, production time, assembly, and tooling.
With the significant cost reduction of our pusher displays, we now have “disposable” (i.e. short shelf life) options with a variety of spring-like actuations as well as long life versions utilizing torsion springs for different size, shape, and weights of products. Thus we have a pusher display for almost any product and on/in any display. In fact, our pusher display system is economical enough to go into pre-packs, skid packs, and counter displays that can be disposed of (recycled) after a promotional period or seasonal change. Keeping products on the shelves neat and visually appealing increases sales 5-10% because consumers respond with impulse purchasing when store shelves look stocked and more attractive.
PACKAGE DEVELOPMENT COMPANY RECEIVES FOUR NJPEC AWARDS
This year, Package Development Company Co., Inc. was the proud recipient of four awards. The awards also included the Technical Merit Award, which went to the Berkley Nanofil Twist-Off Blister for Pure Fishing, a product that uses two cards to trap the irregular die cut flange of the blister.
TECHNICAL MERIT AWARD - TWIST-OFF BLISTER FOR PURE FISHING
The Twist-off Blister for Pure Fishing works by strategically placing de-nesting lugs that have been molded into the side wall of the blister. This allows for automation and positive placement into the blister machine’s sealing tray. These lugs also ensure that the spool graphics remain correctly oriented especially when the customer interacts with the package in a retail environment. The flange has an access point in the cards and can be easily separated from them by twisting them off. It can also easily be twisted back on for repeated use.
SUSTAINABILITY AWARD - TAG AWAY FOR NATURE’S PILLOW
Package Development is happy to have earned a Sustainability Award. The product that made this possible was the Tag Away which we created for Nature’s Pillow. We designed and engineered a sustainable package that allows for in-house automation and turnkey assembly. It is completely recyclable and does not cross contaminate at all with plastic or paper.
PACKAGING INNOVATION AWARD – WEATHERPROOF RETAIL PUSHER TRAY FOR BURPEE GARDEN PRODUCTS
Package Development also came away with a Packaging Innovation Award, as well as a Gold Award, for the Weatherproof Retail Pusher Tray, which we developed for our client, Burpee Garden Products. This is a “patent-pending” design stemming from being vacuum formed and die cut from a single contiguous piece of recycled material. Since the unit ships flat and can be assembled in seconds and can be easily nested, the Weatherproof Retail Pusher Tray significantly cuts down on shipping and warehousing costs.
