    Airlite Plastics is a “Pack Expo Selects” Finalist, Again!

    For the third consecutive year an Airlite Plastics package has been selected as a finalist in the "Pack Expo Selects" packaging innovation competition. A group of packaging professionals assembled by PMMI, the host organization for Pack Expo, reviewed all the nominations and awarded ten packages as finalist award winners. Airlite’s B-Line IML handled buckets were selected by the committee for the honor.

    The B-line employs IML (in-mold labeling) for superior graphics and eye-catching consumer appeal. For food and non-food applications alike, the containers and lids employ a built-in tamper deterring seal and a convenient handle design for carrying that folds out of the way on the shelf. The packages are reusable for storage and fully recyclable. Available in 5 pound, 1 gallon and 10 pound sizes.

    This is the third year in a row that Airlite has been honored for its innovative IML package development. In 2008 it was the hugely popular Q-Line package. In 2009 the custom IML Hormel Foods, Lloyds Barbeque container and lid was not only a finalist, but finished 3rd overall in voting by attendees at Pack Expo.

    The B-Line will be on display at this year's Pack Expo in Chicago (Oct 31 – Nov 3) in the Showcase of Packaging Innovation as well as the Airlite booth.
