Plastic Ingenuity, the largest custom thermoformer in North America, has been recognized by the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) with a WorldStar 2024 award. Only eight products in the electronics category were selected for this year’s WorldStar Global Packaging Awards.

Plastic Ingenuity’s winning package is a Glass Screen Protection Installation Tool for Otter Products, transitioning from an injection-molded tray made with 100% non-recyclable virgin material to a light-gauge thermoformed package using 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) material, which is curbside recyclable.

Additionally, the redesigned package reduced costs by almost 40%, resulting from the switch to thermoforming and a universal design that reduced SKUs and inventory requirements. The new, lightweight tray also helps improve package distribution and transportation efficiencies.

Besides economic and sustainability enhancements, Plastic Ingenuity improved functionality. The new design protects the glass product and is an installation tool. Plastic Ingenuity’s thermoformed tray can be used for virtually all smartphone devices with greater accuracy than previous installation tools.

“It is an honor to receive a WorldStar award for our work with Otter Products,” said Dan Kuehn, President and CEO of Plastic Ingenuity. “We are proud to have turned what used to be painstaking installation process into a positive consumer experience while minimizing the environmental impact of this package.”
