Organic Labs’ custom F-style spray bottle (left) and Rubber Seal’s wide mouth handleware (right) were recognized with three different NACD awards.

Two special awards are also honored: the NACD People’s Choice Award and the Bernard M. Seid “Best of Show” Award. With so many distributors, competition is fierce. Pipeline Packaging and its customers were pleased to be recognized with three awards.

Rubber Seal’s 64-ounce wide mouth handleware container was modeled on a European design. Converting the ergonomic package using US-made, comparable pieces was recognized as a Best Use of Stock Components.

Organic Labs required a custom designed, F-style spray bottle that would better accommodate the sprayer during shipment and prevent breakage. Part of the process included EPA approval. The 72-ounce packaging also met the approval of the NACD, who recognized it in both the Household Chemical & Auto category and the 2015 People’s Choice Award.
