Each package design brings a unique set of features that set them apart from current designs. The PACLOCK Bi-Fold Clamshell, winning design in the Household category, allows PACLOCK to have 100% more space to hold graphic and product information within the package. More product information allows the end customer to read and learn about the product prior to purchase, which will increase point of sale by having more information at the customer fingertips.

The ORTHOFIX Medical Tray, winner of the Medical Device award category, is a superb design that has features to suspend a set of medical device screws with HA coating that prevents abrasion or rubbing off of the critical coating that needs to be on each screw for proper medical operating room usage. The high level of difficulty and precision make this package truly one-of-a-kind that meets a solution for the customer as a result.

The Saves Food – Foodservice category winner was HomeFresh® Entrée by Placon. Designed to stack neatly, to avoid tipping over and causing a mess for the end user. It also features a leak resistant lid, vented or non-vented lid options and is microwavable. Simply microwave, wash and reuse. There is no better way to save food and make cleanup easier than with HomeFresh® Entrée containers.

“Our design team continues to lead the industry to innovative packaging design in the retail, food and medical markets. The 2019 AmeriStar awards validate this leadership and serve as reminder that packaging break-through is a result of collaboration with customers.We are helping our customers find new packaging solutions that bring long-term success for their products and brands,” said Dan Mohs, Placon’s Chairman and CEO.
