Bonita Springs, FL, October 16, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- On October 8, 2013, at their Annual Meeting, the Bonita Springs Estero Economic Development Council announced the relocation of Marbles, LLC to Bonita Springs, Florida. Marbles is a technology company specializing in the development and licensing of industrial design products. Below is a letter from Fred Dowd, President of Technology Container Corporation on the new multi-million dollar partnership designed to compete with the current number one brand storage box “Bankers Box” and its maker, Fellowes.
“Technology Container Corporation (TCC) is very excited to have signed a five year agreement with Marbles, LLC. Marbles is a product and ergonomic innovation design firm with over 75 issued and applied for domestic and international patents. Marbles licenses its innovative technology to businesses worldwide to strengthen their brands and mitigate product commoditization, giving them a competitive edge.
"This multi-million dollar partnership allows TCC the right to market Marbles wonderful innovative technology and designs, and use BOXIETM, ROOTM and ZIPCLIPTM trademarks in the office products and records information management (RIM) industries. We intend on making these brands and technology household names throughout the U.S.A.
"The File Box and File Container industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, currently dominated in retail by Fellowes’ Bankers Box Brand. We look to change this by introducing innovative Marbles technology along with TCC’s manufacturing, packaging, marketing and customer service expertise to the file box and container categories. Sadly, file boxes haven’t changed much in nearly 100 years; that is until now. We will bring to market new features and benefits that employees, consumers and end users will appreciate, such as ergonomic grips and handles that make boxes safer and easier to carry, boxes that lock, and clever file box organizers that help keep contents in order.
"TCC is a world-class Private Brand Manufacturer of File Boxes for companies such as Iron Mountain; Staples; WB Mason; United Stationers and others. TCC is also the world’s largest Plastic Box Manufacturer utilizing durable polypropylene instead of paper to create long life, reusable packaging that can cycle hundreds of times. Lasting numerous cycles, TCC’s corrugated plastic box technology is a more sustainable and cost effective alternative to paper. TCC’s plastic boxes are used by customers when the boxes can be reclaimed and reused over and over again, reducing Solid Waste; Green House Gases and Electrical Consumption by 60-90%. This whole line of products will benefit from Marbles patented ergonomic grips and locking technology designs, making TCC’s Material Handling Plastic Boxes even more User Friendly for its’ customers.
"TCC is a privately held U.S. based manufacturing company with facilities in Worcester, Mass and Desoto, Texas. TCC is sole supplier to many of the world’s leading companies. Founded on proprietary box making technology invented by Dave and Fred Dowd, TCC is a unique manufacturer of User Friendly Container Designs. As admirers of innovation, we believe the Marbles container designs are a big evolutionary step in container ergonomics. We look forward to working with William Scott and his team to promote and help grow their ergonomic concepts and business.”
