Item Products to promote Corra-Screw innovation at UK Corrugated Industry Trade Show

16 June 2022

Item Products, the UK's leading designer and producer of components for the packaging industry, will be showcasing their Corra-Screw innovation on stand 18 at the forthcoming UK Corrugated Industry Trade Show. The event, to be held on 28-29 June at St Georges Park (the FA’s national football centre), Burton-on-Trent, and hosted by the UK Sheet Plant Association, returns to the event calendar after a 3-year absence due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Along with updating visitors on their growing product range, Item Products will be using the event to promote their all new ‘Corra-Screw’, a re-usable fixing for corrugated packaging. Available in two sizes for both double and triple wall board grades, Corra-Screw is a unique, low cost fixing to bind and release multiple layers of board. Being very quick and easy to use and 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. Corra-screw is a registered trademark in the UK and EU and now, more recently, in the USA.

Julian Cook, Item’s managing director, said: “Showcasing Corra-Screw at the UK Corrugated Industry Trade Show provides the perfect opportunity to plug the attributes of this simple, yet effective innovation and hopefully drive interest and sales. It’s also great to be able to discuss what’s new in our product portfolio 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 two days.”

Item Products' extensive product portfolio also includes carry handles for cartons, connecting clips for corrugated board, hooks, studs and rivets for merchandising units, wheels and stabilisers for big or heavy packs and garment rails for wardrobe boxes.

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.
