Item Products to exhibit expanding product portfolio at EmpackGorinchem
16 March 2022
Item Products, the UK's leading designer and producer of components for the packaging industry, will be showcasing their extensive range of innovative solutions at EmpackGorinchem, held in the Netherlands on 5-7 April 2022.
The company, which has recently established a new distributor agreement for the Benelux region with Belgium company, Allsign, will be exhibiting on stand E140.
Being the first time that Item Products has exhibited outside the UK since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the company will be using the show to update visitors on the very latest products on the market, including the all new ‘Corra-Screw’, a re-usable fixing for corrugated packaging. Available in two sizes for both double and tri wall board grades, Corra-Screw is a unique, low cost fixing to bind and release multiple layers of board. Perfect for re-usable transit packaging and returnable goods, Corra-Screw can be secured by hand or with a screwdriver, and eliminates the need for tape or staples, thereby reducing damage to packaging. Corra-Screw is robust, recyclable and made from 100% recycled material.
Also on their stand, Item Products will be displaying their wide products portfolio, including Interlock locking clips, which are designed to clip together multiple sections of corrugated board in a heavy duty transit pack. Their use eliminates the need for strapping, which often cuts into board to impair its performance, possibly risking damage to the contents. Other items on show include standard and heavy duty carrying handles that can be recycled in the commercial waste stream, display hooks, euro studs and rivets for point of sale, as well as wheels and stabilisers to provide packaging mobility.
A key part of their offering is Box Latch™, a re-usable carton closure device distributed by Item Products in the UK and Europe. The Box Latch™ product enables corrugated packaging to be re-used via a simple closure system, as opposed to tape or staples. The device is helping companies reach their waste reduction targets, improve supply chain sustainability and create leaner manufacturing, all with an innovative, low technology solution.
Incorporating strong environmental messages as a core theme on their stand, Item Products will be promoting the phrase ‘re-use before recycle’ for all components in their product portfolio, meaning that all items can be re-used time and time again before being recycled.
Julian Cook, Item’s managing director, said: “It’s great to be able to showcase our latest products and re-connect with visitors once again. We have a well-established reputation in the marketplace for developing innovative, environmentally efficient solutions and I’m sure that we can look forward to a busy and productive show over the period.”
