2019 Packaging Innovation & Design of the Year Award
The Domestic & Household category recognises organisations that have designed innovative packaging and processing materials, packaging and machinery/equipment within domestic and household items, toys, stationery, gifts, clothing, garden equipment, decorating.
The Gold Winner is awarded to Nulon Products Australia & Caps and Closures for the Nulon Ezy-Squeeze™ fluid transfer system which replaces the traditional rigid packaging with a flexible pouch and applicator that has made accessing hard-to-reach fill points on a car quick and easy.
On receiving the award, the Nulon representative said: “The product had to be easy to use for the consumer. As it’s very hard to innovate due to regulations in the automotive industry, this was a really successful innovation. It had to be easy to get the product from the pouch to the transmission box and engine. No-one has ever used flexible packaging before, we are the first. A big thanks to Caps & Closures.”
Michael van Dord from Caps & Closures said: “The job was a great opportunity to develop innovation using our knowledge and expertise. Projects like this are an excellent way to demonstrate what our company and our industry is capable of.”
