Our team of engineers and packaging scientists are passionate about finding the next big idea and collaborating with our customers to create innovative packaging solutions.
Safety. Sustainability. Customer Focus. Innovation. Quality. Value Creation. These are the strands in our DNA that set us apart. When you take a closer look, you’ll discover that they are evident in everything we do.
Evaluation & Testing
The Innovation Institute® labs are designed to evaluate the effectiveness of your packaging by putting it through rigorous testing. Our skilled technicians and designers are committed to designing optimum solutions by performing the correct testing, analyzing the data and validating the design.
Materials Testing Lab
The Materials Testing Lab is maintained at TAPPI test conditions. Here, we are capable of performing a variety of key tests on liners, mediums and combined boards, and are able to predict structural integrity and board optimization through extensive testing protocols and proprietary packaging strength software.
Packaging Testing Lab
The Packaging Testing Lab is where we put your packaging through the gauntlet – simulating different types of transportation to make sure our packaging holds up. This laboratory is maintained at TAPPI test conditions and has the capability to simulate all the forces encountered by either individual packages or full pallets of product during handling, transportation and warehousing. This is an ISTA certified lab and can do a variety of ISTA, ASTM and other transportation testing protocols.
Our environmental chambers provide packaging with exposure to real life environmental conditions with three different walk-in chamber environments. They provide the ability to simulate freezing to high temperatures, low to high humidity, and everything in between. We can handle everything from small samples to multiple pallets of product.
