Inland Empire Manufacturers Gain Greater Access to Packsize Z-fold as

Shift Toward Lean Packaging Systems Builds

SALT LAKE CITY, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Packsize International

today announced the expansion of its z-FoldT corrugated production in

Southern California, which will provide greater access and improved

delivery times to the company's Inland Empire customers. A

proprietary, 97 percent recyclable corrugated material designed

specifically for On Demand Packaging@, z-FoldT gives Packsize

customers the ability to control time and costs associated with their

carton packaging.

Driven by several factors, including the need to balance operational

quality with innovation, a continued push toward lean manufacturing,

and the connected consumers' increased expectations for speedier

supplier response, Packsize continues to receive strong adoption of On

Demand Packaging@ across U.S. manufacturing sectors, including

Southern California, which accounts for more than half of all

manufacturing establishments in that state.

The expanded production for z-FoldT from a paper mill outside of

Fresno will increase Packsize delivery times by at least 95 percent in

Southern California. "While reducing the delivery distance and carbon

footprint for our customers is important in meeting demand

requirements for this region, these customers will continue to derive

the best that On Demand Packaging@ offers, including less waste, lower

shipping costs, decreased damage rates, and increased customer

satisfaction," said CEO Hanko Kiessner.

Available to customers of its automated packaging machines, Packsize

z-FoldT can be creased, cut, and scored into an infinite number of box

styles and sizes. Packsize z-FoldT is free from quality defects and

provides the customer with a box yield that meets their packaging

requirements on any given day.

Corrugated packaging continues to have broad appeal among packaging

buyers and end-users alike and remains today an environmentally

preferable method for product delivery. This type of packaging is

versatile, cost-effective, allows for customization, and lends itself

to product protection during shipping.
