ProMach Receives 2010 Green Award for Sustainable Packaging Machinery SolutionsJun 15, 2010
Cincinnati, OH - ProMach was awarded the first ever 2010 Manny Green Award from Cincy Magazine this month for manufacturing initiatives and product innovations that helped customers improve package sustainability.
Three examples were highlighted during the award process. In the first example, ProMach's Fowler division, which manufactures capping equipment, collaborated with several major bottled water companies and multiple material vendors in a solution to package water using lightweight, thinner, smaller containers and caps. Fowler set up test packaging lines and engineered the capping machinery solution that allowed them to greatly reduce packaging material and maintain line speeds. One of these companies estimates they are using 1/3 less plastic, a reduction of more than 95 million pounds at a cost savings of more than $60 million. Comparable savings are also being achieved by the other producers.
In the second example, ProMach's Roberts PolyPro division was noted for producing 100% recyclable single and multi-pack handles for the beverage industry that average 5 to 35 percent less resin than alternative processes. In the third example, ProMach's Orion division developed a customized solution to help a fresh produce customer significantly reduce food product loss and damage during transit.
"We're honored to receive this recognition from Cincy Magazine," said Jack Aguero, ProMach Vice-President of Marketing and Business Development. "All of these sustainable initiatives have taken a team effort from customers, material suppliers, and our staff. Without the commitment of everyone involved we wouldn't have been successful."
