Good Business - and a Nut in View Approximately 2,700 exhibitors and 175,000 visitors from all over the world: interpack 2014, the world's most important trade fair dedicated to packaging and processes, has had a very positive outcome. Schoeller Allibert is pleased with its successful appearance in Düsseldorf. Customers and interested parties were impressed with the company's extensive and innovative range displayed at the trade fair stand. Schoeller Allibert caused a sensation by being nominated for one of the most coveted international awards in the packaging industry: the Golden Nut. From 8 to 14 May, at the fully booked Düsseldorf exhibition centre, the focus was entirely on packaging and its related processes. Professionals from all over the world attended in order to learn about the latest trends and developments in the industry. On this occasion, Schoeller Allibert presented itself as a provider of one of the most comprehensive product ranges in the field of reusable packaging. "The interest and quality of the discussions at our stand were outstanding," comments Hans-Joachim Wiedmann, Managing Director of Schoeller Allibert Germany. "Our trade fair team not only made many valuable contacts but also received several very specific requests." Once again, the interpack event offered an ideal platform for relations with existing customers. At the Schoeller Allibert stand, trade fair visitors received information, among other things, on the foldable large container of the Magnum Optimum, Magnum HD and Boxer Pac series, the modular LWB storage and transport container system, the Eureka standard container, different product series from the range of stacking and nesting containers, as well as the foldable small load containers of the PreLog range. The company also showcased several plastic pallets, including the new Longleaf7, which is specifically designed to transport sacks. Thanks to its special design, this range comprises an additional layer of sacks with the same stacking height. With its extensive product range, Schoeller Allibert offers both standardised and customised solutions for industries as diverse as the automotive industry, the food and beverage industries, trade, and the service industry. As an ideal opening for the interpack event, Schoeller Allibert attracted attention ??with its innovative Leffe bottle crate. With a carrying capacity of 24 x 0.33-litre bottles, it offers the opportunity to store many kinds of packages, i.e. 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 12 bottle packs. The bottom of the crate comprises a double timber-framed insert, which is mounted on two anti-rust steel springs and pushed down when loading. After removing the cardboard carrier, the double bottom moves upward to a medium height. It can then be loaded with individual bottles, which do not come into contact with each other. The empty bottles maintain a stable position in the box and can be transported intact back to the breweries. Moreover, they are already in the correct position for automated handling at the brewery. The Leffe bottle crate is one of the 10 products that made it to the final selection for one of the most coveted international awards for packaging innovations: the Golden Nut. It is awarded by the Netherlands Packaging Centre (NVC), an association of companies committed to achieving ongoing improvement in packaging solutions throughout the supply chain. "We are very excited about this nomination, since it confirms our expertise as a developer and manufacturer of innovative and sustainable products," explains Hans-Joachim Wiedmann. The winner of the Golden Nut award will be announced in September.
