Perfecseal Wins DuPont Packaging Innovation Award
Perfecseal, a division of Bemis Company and global supplier to the medical device, pharmaceutical and diagnostic packaging markets, is pleased to announce it was awarded the DuPont Packaging Innovation Award for the design of the Wire Coil Clamshell for Arthrex Inc. The company's “Wire Coil Clamshell” innovatively overcomes the challenges the medical field faces in assembling suture passing wire. Using a three-paneled, thermoformed package design and eliminating the porous, heat-sealed lid, manufacturing times and costs were reduced while helping medical personnel to easily remove the suture for quick use.
Now in its 23rd year, the DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation is the industry’s longest-running, global, independently-judged celebration of innovation and collaboration throughout the value chain. Each year an esteemed panel awards diamond, gold or silver honors based on “excellence” ratings in one or all of three categories: Innovation; Sustainability; and/or Cost Reduction.
