HexcelPack wins first prize at the Packaging Innovations & Empack Show in Birmingham, UK


Now made in the UK, HexcelWrap™ named “Most Innovative Product”.

Bristol, CT – HexcelPack, a developer of environmentally friendly paper-based protective cushioning solutions to replace bubble wrap and other plastic or foam-based materials, has won the “Most Innovative Product” award for its HexcelWrap™ cushioning paper at the eminent Packaging Innovations & Empack Show in Birmingham, UK. Voted for by exhibitors and attendees, the show’s Packaging Innovations Showcase award is a significant win for HexcelPack, beating out more than a dozen sustainable packaging product competitors.

Like all HexcelPack products, HexcelWrap™ uses the company’s revolutionary paper-cut technology, which converts stretch paper into an internationally patented, three-dimensional cushioning product by making precise cuts at specific angles. This method allows the paper to “flex”, to increase its volume while maximizing the strength and stiffness of its fibres. The result is a superior cushioning product that outperforms recent counterfeits and environmentally harmful product protection alternatives, including bubble wrap and plastic-based pillows.

HexcelPack protective padding is easily dispensed with the company’s compact options, including a stand-alone, fully recyclable tabletop dispensing station. The most popular of these, the Mini Packing Station™, is an easy-to-use, human-powered dispenser requiring no electricity, no maintenance, and a mere fraction of the table space required by competing solutions.

Available in white and Kraft paper, HexcelWrap™ and Mini Packing Station™ benefits include:

Unparalleled Product Protection: Designed with Ultra Stretch™ technology, HexcelWrap™ provides superior cushioning and product protection. Users simply stretch, wrap and tear the lightweight, interlocking material to custom lengths without the need for tape or scissors. HexcelWrap™ is ideal for shipping fragile items and reduces product damage by eliminating, among other undesirable events, glass-to-glass contact during the supply chain journey.

Durability: 100% paper-based, HexcelWrap™ cushioning paper is made from 100% Canadian Forest Certification Endorsement (PEFC) paper for exemplary durability and little to no impact on the environment – while providing proven protection to outperform plastic bubble wrap and pillows. Unlike single-use plastic bubbles, the paper used to produce HexcelWrap™ is fully recyclable and biodegradable.

Return on investment: Especially given the completely manual, electricity and maintenance free nature of the Mini Packing Station™ dispenser, using HexcelWrap™ has as much impact on the bottom line as it does on the environment. Protective and cost-effective, the system allows retailers to quickly recoup their investment.

“This award is an honor for our team, as it demonstrates our many years of experience in developing innovative packaging solutions that provide sustainability without sacrificing product protection,” said Lorne Herszkowicz, Partner at HexcelPack. “We are delighted that the industry recognizes the many benefits of HexcelWrap – from its seamless integration capabilities that transform any wrapping table into a cost-effective and sustainable wrapping suite, to its ability to downsize boxes, control damage, reduce labor costs, save warehouse space and eliminate redundant packaging.”
