Lincoln-based contract packer Box-DCP has added to its portfolio a display packaging system already proven in the US said to combine the benefits of blister, clamshell, skin and shrink packaging in one.

Developed by US company Sun Industries, the SunPaq system is an attractive, cost-effective alternative to the more labour-intensive blister and clampack option. Offering total product visibility back and front, it features a Surlyn

film window patch affixed to card and can be produced in several styles – including free-standing, frame view, side-fold, see-through and carton-insert. Both single and double-sided variants are available.

Box-DCP says users can significantly improve productivity and cut costs. The machines for producing the pack are marketed in the UK by Southampton-based Sun Industries subsidiary SunPaq UK, which also provides know-how and technical advice.
