The Packsize automated iQ Fusion 2 On Demand Packaging machine was named the 2015 Silver Award Applied Technology - Industrial Solutions winner by the internationally renowned Edison Awards™ at its annual event in New York City on April 23.
The distinguished awards, inspired by Thomas Edison's persistence and inventiveness, recognize innovation, creativity, and ingenuity in the global economy.
"Receiving this Edison Award—one of the most prestigious accolades honoring excellence in new product and service development—is a great honor for Packsize," said Packsize CFO Bradley Wittwer, who attended the gala event. "It was meaningful to be counted among such innovative solutions, and noteworthy to be recognized the same year that Clayton Christensen was honored with an Edison Achievement Award since Packsize has borrowed so extensively from his research and teachings on innovation."
A transformational supply chain innovation, the iQ Fusion 2® On Demand Packaging® machine produces the right-sized box for every product exactly when needed. Providing an infinite number of boxes for variable-sized products directly on a company's pack line, this lean packaging system intelligently manages corrugated material, increases productivity, and improves sustainability.
Prior to Packsize, the only option for companies was to buy pre-sized boxes, store them in a warehouse, and then retrieve them to pack the product(s). The iQ Fusion 2® machine has the smallest footprint of all Packsize box-making machines and customers who use the iQ Fusion 2® have no upfront capital costs.
The Edison Award finalists spanned 12 categories and more than 30 sub-categories. The recognition is ranked highly due to the unbiased reviews of entries by a network of industry experts, business executives, and academics who provide third-party validation that delivers an affirmation of superior quality.
