Plastipak Wins Packaging Innovation Award

The company uses Direct Object Printing, a patented technology for packaging decoration. It uses specially developed inks that are fully compatible with closed-loop recycling and cured using low-energy LED lights, with images directly ink-jet printed on to plastic bottles and containers.

Plastipak Packaging Inc. of Plymouth, Mich., announced it has won a silver DuPont Award for Packaging Innovation.

"With the DuPont Packaging Innovations awards being so prestigious, we are delighted with such an amazing result. Being recognized for our innovative package decoration solution is a testament to the talent, creativity, and hard work of everyone at Plastipak," said Jennifer Renner, Plastipak's business development manager. "Awards like this are very important to us, sending out a strong message to our customers that we are a truly inspiring business that can solve challenges and deliver higher levels of industry innovation."

This awards program is in its 29th year, making them one of the industry's longest-running global and independently judged celebration of innovation and collaboration throughout the value chain, according to Plastipak.

The company uses Direct Object Printing, a patented technology for packaging decoration. It uses specially developed inks that are fully compatible with closed-loop recycling and cured using low-energy LED lights, with images directly ink-jet printed on to plastic bottles and containers. This eliminates the need for separate labels, liners, and adhesives.
