Packaging of the Week: ExpandOS™, “Expand On-Site”

ExpandOS™ Unveils a Protective, Recyclable Packaging Material That Reduces Damage and Labor Cost for Shippers

A new high-performance packaging material is cutting costs for shippers of fragile products, including semi-conductors, medical equipment, veterinary and medical supplies, lighting fixtures, dinnerware and office supplies. The paperboard pyramids from ExpandOS™, which stands for “Expand On-Site”, are 100% recyclable and made from post-industrial waste paper, which has earned ExpandOS™ the endorsement of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.

“ExpandOS has a very low carbon footprint when compared to other packaging materials,” said Jeff Boothman, president of the company. “The product is made from 100% post-industrial waste. Carbon is only generated through energy used to die cut sheets of ExpandOS pyramids.”

Each 1,000 pounds of post industrial waste ExpandOS uses averts the need to re-pulp the paper, saving 888 lb of CO2 that would otherwise be produced in the re-pulping process. That’s the equivalent of taking 3.9 cars off the road for a week.
