LOS ANGELES, CA | Winterborne and CardPak, Inc., Solon, OH, plan joining resources to bring sustainable packaging products and services to the clamshell and blister packaging markets. By combining efforts the partner companies become a dominant force in sustainable replacements for traditional plastic clamshell and blister type packaging. Both companies have a strong presence in the warehouse club channel as well other major retail outlets.
Winterborne is known for the invention of award- winning EnviroShell, made from recycled RPET and recycled corrugated, and now used by a variety of internationally recognized brand owners in both retail and warehouse club marketplaces. Winterborne offers brand owners turnkey services, including custom sustainable product packaging design development and production.
CardPak develops sustainable products and practices lean, environmentally friendly manufacturing. CardPak has marketed an award-winning ecological line of clamshell replacement packaging that eliminates up to 85% of plastic and reduces harmful contaminants from the waste stream. Included in their line is SustainPak and ClubPak, used by such major brands as Oil of Olay, General Electric, and Kirkland Signature for their warehouse club packaging.
Howard Mallen, Winterborne executive VP said, “The partner companies are remarkably similar in culture and focus on sustainability. We have complementary market strengths and products and expect this agreement to give us, jointly, a dominant presence in the market while offering our customers seeking sustainable packaging the convenience of using a single source supplier.”
