New Collapsible Packaging Product is a Game Changer

FCA's Collapsible Utility Box (C.U.B.) is an innovative, yet economical collapsible packaging product that saves customers significant money on freight, storage, set up and take down, and packaging costs. It requires no tools, clips, fasteners or hardware to assemble and is much more economical than other collapsible packaging products on the market.

Moline, IL, December 17, 2013 --(PR.com)-- FCA, LLC, a provider of custom industrial packaging products and OEM packaging services, announces the launch of a new and patent-pending, collapsible packaging product under the brand name C.U.B. (Collapsible Utility Box). The collapsible box is an innovative and money-saving packaging product that is available in both standard (optimized) and custom sizes.

Jeff Campagna, President of FCA and life-long industrial packaging veteran said “The C.U.B. is a unique collapsible box that addresses a market need for custom collapsible technology, but at an affordable price. Our Patent-pending collapsible technology can bring significant savings to any supply chain including storage costs, freight costs (both inbound and outbound), and labor savings on set up and take down. It is ISPM-15 compliant, is environmentally friendly, and can nearly eliminate a company’s spend on product set up. If there is a collapsible box in the industry that is easier to use, and can impact savings across the system more quickly and effectively than the C.U.B., I have not seen it.”

“Some collapsible boxes exist currently in the market, but none that are as easy to set up and take down as the C.U.B.,” said Mike Thompson, Director of FCA’s Packaging Engineering Center. “This box has been designed with ease-of-use in mind, but particularly with the goal of dramatically reducing our customers’ freight costs, distribution costs, labor costs, and system costs. Our boxes have been validated in our ISTA-certified packaging lab to ASTM-D4169, Truck Assurance Level 1 standard. Any ship loose parts, custom parts, or other applications that can benefit from collapsible storage should consider the C.U.B. for both ease of use and the packaging savings that go straight to the bottom line.”

To request a quote for a standard or collapsible version of FCA’s Collapsible Utility Box (C.U.B.) call 1-855-FCA-CUB1 or visit www.CollapsiblePackaging.com.

Crews start demolishing old Packard factory, long a symbol of Detroit blight

Oct 17 2014 4:06pm CDT | Source: Canadian Business Online

DETROIT – Demolition started Friday on a section of the massive and crumbling Detroit Packard auto factory complex — a symbol of the city’s blight and past manufacturing glory. A high reach demolition excavator was used to rip out reinforced concrete exterior wall and floor supports. Resembling a large toothy metal claw, the heavy equipment also sent chunks of wood, brick and concrete crashing to the closed-off street below. ...
