“Two years ago we had one goal in mind at Pack Expo, and that was to find vendors who would work with us on this project,” said Big Heart Senior Manager of Packaging R&D Paul Baker (center). “Finally we got to the Kliklok-Woodman booth, and they agreed to take it on.”

Kliklok-Woodman’s primary contribution was to supply the machines that erect and close the folding carton that serves as secondary packaging for the Milk Bone Brushing Chews that Big Heart was introducing. Bosch Packaging, which supplied vertical form/fill/seal equipment, also played a key role, as did Velcro, Aplix, Printpack, Rock Tenn, Kleenline, Valco Melton, Henkel, and others.

Joining the awards presentation was Klik-Woodman’s Ross Long, Vice President of Sales and Marketing (left).
