It's In The Bag

Apr 02, 2002

CHARLOTTE, NC - Roberts PolyPro Inc, an innovative leader in packaging and converting solutions, has developed a revolutionary insert hook for the apparel, textile, and hosiery industries that allows the customer's focus to remain on the product instead of the hook.

The Insert Header Tab Hook is designed as an inverted hook to offer a new and more efficient merchandising technique. Because the plastic hook is formed in a tab that is inserted into the plastic bag, nothing protrudes off the package, yielding more shelf space.

"Our Insert Header Tab Hook minimizes the product footprint and greatly increases the utilization of display shelf space," says Allan Sutherland, President of Roberts PolyPro. "This innovative merchandising method is a great way to display product and helps the customer focus on the product rather than on the display hook".

Roberts PolyPro manufactures a large range of display hooks for general textile, hosiery and other product merchandising. All hooks are available in a variety of styles, shapes, and sizes and can be produced in any Pantone color. They can be supplied loose or organized to allow for either manual or automated application.

Insert Header Tab Hooks can be inserted in the plastic web with Roberts PolyPro's Hook-in-Bag Applicator at a rate of 90 bags a minute. The Hook-in-Bag Applicator is a compact machine that can easily be integrated into existing lines with no reduction in line speed or increase in labor cost.

Roberts PolyPro produces a comprehensive line of packaging and converting fixtures, fitments, and components as well as a modular line of packaging and converting machinery.
