Innovations to the Packaging Market

Jul 15, 2008, 01:00 ET from Unisource Worldwide, Inc.

    NORCROSS, Ga., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisource Worldwide, Inc., one
 of the leading distributors of paper, packaging and facility supplies in
 North America, has announced a special program for packaging equipment
 customers as it launches a new stretch film wrapper equipment program.
     To promote its innovative product line, Unisource is now offering
 customers who try the Private Brand equipment two years of FREE use.
 Customers who purchase a minimum of two pallets of stretch film a month
 from Unisource can use the high-performance Private Brand stretch wrapper
 for two years -- ABSOLUTELY FREE -- complete with quarterly preventative
 maintenance. At the conclusion of the two-year period, customers may
 purchase the Private Brand stretch wrapper at market value, or Unisource
 will take it back -- no questions asked.
     "We just unwrapped our Unisource Private Brand stretch wrapper at the
 2008 EastPack show in New York City and the response was fantastic," said
 Mike Schoenberger, Vice President - Packaging Systems. "It was a huge hit!
 Frankly, that's what we thought would happen when we designed our Private
 Brand machine after listening to our customers and stretch film experts.
 This promotion will now enable our sales professionals to firmly establish
 our product line in the nationwide marketplace."
     Unisource has entered the Private Brand packaging equipment arena by
 introducing its own stretch film wrapper, loaded with features not
 available on other equipment currently on the market. The company is
 already shipping its Private Brand stretch wrapper units to customers, and
 additional inventory is staged throughout its U.S. distribution network.
     The Unisource Private Brand stretch wrapper machine offers innovative
 features, including:
     -- A dual-speed roll carriage that produces a faster up-speed for
 stabilizing irregular profile loads and a slower down-speed for securing
     -- Self-diagnostics through a built-in troubleshooting system;
     -- Powder-coated paint that not only protects the stretch wrapper's
 look even after years of operation but also helps eliminate ozone-depleting
 volatile organic compounds (VOCs);
     -- An Allen-Bradley PLC, with market-leading reliability and nationwide
     -- Quieter operation due to a belt-drive roll carriage that eliminates
 clanging chains and noisy casters; and
     -- A lifetime guarantee on the machine's pre-stretch rollers.
     Made in the U.S.A., the Unisource stretch wrapper is a feature-rich
 machine that can handle loads that weigh up to two tons, are almost seven
 feet high, and exceed four feet wide. Using a belt drive on its roll
 carriage, the Unisource machine is designed for quieter operation and less
 maintenance than stretch wrappers that use the traditional
 chain-and-sprocket carriage drive design.
     The Unisource stretch wrapper's dual-speed roll carriage also offers
 the benefits of a fast up-speed to stabilize irregular profile loads and a
 slower down-speed for securing loads. The pre-stretch rollers are
 guaranteed for the life of the machine, because they can't be damaged when
 operators need to load or remove stretch film.

 equipment "two years of free use offer," contact your Unisource sales
