FCA, LLC, a provider of custom industrial packaging products and OEM packaging services, will provide its innovative Collapsible Utility Box (C.U.B.) to Living Lands and Waters, a non-profit organization that has grown to become be the only “industrial strength” river cleanup organization of its kind.
Chad Pregracke, Founder of Living Lands and Waters and the 2013 CNN Hero of the Year noticed FCA’s Collapsible Utility Box display in Moline and immediately recognized the potential within his organization for its ease of use and practicality. The C.U.B. is a unique collapsible box that addresses a market need for custom collapsible technology, but at an affordable price.
“Some collapsible boxes exist currently in the market, but none that are as easy to set up and take down as the C.U.B,” says Mike Thompson, Director of FCA’s Packaging Engineering Center. “This box has been designed with ease-of-use in mind, but particularly with the goal of dramatically reducing our customers’ freight costs, distribution costs, labor costs, and system costs. Any ship loose parts, custom parts, or other applications that can benefit from collapsible storage should consider the C.U.B. for both ease of use and the packaging savings that go straight to the bottom line.”
John Bostrom, Operations Manager at LL&W adds, “After taking a look around our shop, I think we have just about a million uses for [FCA’s] product. We are excited to be using something so practical.”
