KANSAS CITY, MO (August 18, 2021) — Vanguard Companies (“Vanguard”), founded in 1975, is a leading designer and manufacturer of value-added point-of-purchase displays, retail ready packaging, industrial packaging products and related assembly, logistics and fulfillment services. Vanguard Companies is pleased to announce the winning of the Best of the Industry Corrugated Structure in the 2021 Box Manufacturing Olympics. The competition was open to all TAPPI and AICC members from around the globe who produce corrugated, rigid box and folding cartons, as well as their suppliers. Entries were evaluated on a number of levels, including design, quality, graphic excellence, technical difficulty and innovative application.
In addition to the two previously announced gold wins, Vanguard Companies and Remington, from Spectrum Brands, won the Best of the Industry Corrugated Structure for their Remington iLight IPL3500VDN for Costco Canada. Best of the Industry award was chosen from the Gold Medal winners in the qualifying categories.
Costco requested the Remington iLight product come in a large package for their stores. Due to the small size of the product and it having a Medical Certification with a specific serial number, it was cost effective to place original product package into a larger secondary package.
The unique All-in-One secondary package design had an integrated insert to hold the product package in place and allow for the Medical Certification Serial Number to be seen through a cutout on the bottom of the package. The design also allowed for easy setup and assembly along with easy locking of the product package inside. The reduced fillers and inserts also made it quick and easy for the customer to access and remove the product.
