Scholle IPN has announced the delivery of its 25th million bag-in-box package for automotive oil to the market, a major milestone since introducing the offering in 2008.
"From the outset, we were confident this product line would do extremely well. It was really the right development for a market segment that was thirsty for innovation," says Frank Rice, senior business manager for Scholle IPN. "The market was looking for an intelligent way to better-manage bulk automotive oil in situations where quart bottles had traditionally been used. Keeping track of inventory, nearly eliminating waste and providing faster service were key demands we worked from in those early years. Since then, we've gone on to help integrate the package with better dispensing technology and design high-speed filling equipment designed specifically for this market solution. Our customers value our ability to engineer an entire solution, from film to fitment to fill."
Adds Lani Craddock, VP of marketing and business development: "We have a long history of pioneering unique and valuable flexible packaging solutions and we are extremely proud of this one. We work hard to engineer solutions that help our customers deliver their products in a way that is safe, natural, economic and sustainable. And, for the automotive fluid market, we hit all the right notes. Working closely with our customers to understand their opportunities and quickly responding with developments has helped fundamentally change how people get their car oil changed. This is the fun part of what we do.”
