OSHKOSH, WI (June 14, 2011) – Perfecseal, a division of Bemis Company and global supplier to the medical device, pharmaceutical and diagnostic packaging markets, is pleased to announce it was awarded the DuPont Packaging Innovation Award for the design of the Wire Coil Clamshell for Arthrex, Inc.
Perfecseal and Arthrex were able to design this innovative package to overcome the challenges the medical field faces in assembling suture passing wire. Using a three-paneled, thermo-formed package design and eliminating the heat-sealed lid, manufacturing times and costs were reduced while aiding medical personnel in easily removing the suture for quick access.
Now in its 23rd year, the DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation is the industry’s longest-running, global, independently-judged celebration of innovation and collaboration throughout the value chain. Each year an esteemed panel awards diamond, gold or silver honors based on “excellence” ratings in one or all of three categories: Innovation; Sustainability; and/or Cost Reduction.
