Intertape Polymer Group Moves Inside the Box with New Protective Packaging Line

BRADENTON, FLORIDA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 09/11/06 -- Intertape Polymer Group (NYSE: ITP)(TSX: ITP), known for its expertise in packaging solutions around and on the box for over 25 years, has moved inside the box with the addition of its newest iCushion(TM) Protective Packaging line.

"Entering into the protective packaging market is a natural progression for IPG," states Greg Yull, Chief Operating Officer for Intertape. "Our aligned distribution partners and end-users have shown great interest and welcome this addition to our product offering. This allows us to enhance our relationships and value proposition by furthering our ability to successfully serve as a 'Single Source' with 'Multiple Resources'. With products strategically located at our distribution centers, our customers can easily combine protective packaging with their regular orders of IPG stretch film, tape, shrink film and machinery. This will create order efficiencies, lower costs and improve inventory turns. We remain continuously focused on offering the broadest range of products in the industry."

The iCushion(TM) Protective Packaging Inflatable Air Pillow System offers a convenient, innovative void-fill solution designed to securely cushion products during shipment while delivering clean, professional-looking packages. A complete standard system consists of the following: AP-8000C air pillow machine, cart with storage bin, transfer stand and on-demand photo eye.

Air pillows are an ideal void-fill alternative that can improve productivity and free up valuable warehouse space over bulky, conventional packaging materials. iCushion(TM) Air Pillows are available in four sizes: 8"x4", 8"x6", 8"x8" and 8"x10". With a roll length of 2900', they are engineered to reduce costs by minimizing roll changeovers and limit down time. "One roll of film can actually yield the equivalent cubic footage of 15-18 bags of loose-fill, depending on pillow size and air volume," explains Mike Weston, Protective Packaging Marketing Manger for Intertape.

iCushion(TM) Air Pillows are lightweight, perforated for easy separation and made of clear, non-abrasive poly which will not scratch the product's surface. They are reusable and recyclable, with disposal requiring a low volume in landfills when deflated.

The AP-8000C dispenser is easy to operate, weighs only 44 lbs, and inflates on-demand at an industry leading speed of 70 feet per minute. Its lightweight, compact design and internal air supply help create work-place flexibility and lower start-up costs.

The iCushion(TM) Inflatable Air Pillow System will be featured at PackExpo and Distripak in Chicago this Fall. "Our main focus this year is showcasing our new products and new market segments, and how these products complement our ability to provide the complete packaging solution to our customers and markets," states Mr. Yull.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
