FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Frederica, Delaware – April 18, 2018 — ILC Dover is pleased to announce that our patent-pending Xtrakt® System has been selected as the winner of the 2018 Excellence in Industrial Packaging award which was presented at the inaugural Industrial Pack show held in Atlanta on April 4th and 5th.
Launched in 2017, the Xtrakt® system was designed to help chemical, personal care, food and beverage processors reduce waste and boost profits by extracting virtually all viscous materials from bulk liners in shipping and transfer totes. The specially designed dual-wall liner, drive unit and deployment cart system provides benefits over traditional form-fit and air-assist liners including mitigation of wasted product, improved operating efficiencies and reduced environmental impact, while simultaneously promoting operator safety.
“We are honored to be the first recipient of this prestigious award,” said Glenn LeBlanc, V.P. & Division Manager for ILC Dover’s Packaging & Personal Safety Division. “There were many strong entrants, so it is especially exciting for our Xtrakt System to be recognized for the innovation it has brought to bulk dispensing of viscous liquids in the personal care, chemical and food & beverage industries.”
Industrial Pack is North America’s first and only show dedicated to the industrial, transit and protective packaging sector. The industry generates sales of $69bn every year in North America; its products are a crucial enabler for supply chains in many industries, from electronics to automotive, construction and agriculture. The excellence in packaging award was chosen by a panel of industry experts and awarded to the product viewed by the panel as the most innovative and with the greatest impact in the industry.
