St. Louis, MO, May 15, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- National Plastics is pleased to announce that its StockClam line of stock clamshell packaging has now reached 100 unique sizes. Initially designed for small companies looking for packaging options that did not require an expensive tooling investment, the StockClam line has experienced significant growth due to demand from all types of companies who want to avoid tooling costs and take advantage of the company’s quick turnaround and low minimum quantities.
“We thought that this product line would primarily serve smaller companies with limited budgets and low volume requirements, but many larger companies with just-in-time manufacturing systems are purchasing StockClam packages because of the low minimums and short lead times,” said Frank Forst, President of National Plastics. “Our centralized location, willingness to offer cumulative pricing for larger blanket orders, and ability to send samples and shipments out within 24 hours, has really helped us gain a foothold in this market.”
The addition of the 100th size marks a milestone in the company’s transition from a custom thermoformer to a supplier of standardized, in-stock packaging. Despite the slow economy, the company currently has plans to add 11 more sizes in 2009 and recently brought a new Sencor 2500 inline thermoforming machine online to build capacity.
“Customers really appreciate the opportunity to purchase many different sizes and get the price break for the total order and this is helping to drive our decision to continue adding more sizes. National Plastics is now poised to not only weather the economic downturn, but thrive by being the premier provider of stock clamshell packaging to companies of all sizes” said Frank.
National Plastics’ website, www.clamshell-packaging.com contains details on each stock clamshell size as well as downloadable prints detailing all relevant dimensions and an inquiry form for those requesting samples and pricing.
