CONCORD TOWNSHIP, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ranpak Holdings Corp. (“Ranpak”) (NYSE: PACK), a global leader of environmentally sustainable, paper-based packaging solutions for e-commerce and industrial supply chains, today announced the North American launch of PadPak® Guardian™, the Company’s next generation cushioning solution.
PadPak® Guardian™ is a sustainable, paper-based, flexible and ergonomic cushioning solution that reduces packaging time and protects light to heavy goods during shipment. PadPak® Guardian™ is differentiated from other solutions in the market by the ability to convert both single and double™-ply paper bundles, offering businesses greater versatility from one machine and providing a high performance, sustainable alternative to plastic and foam cushioning. The technology produces pads that cushion both light and heavy items, including electronics, cosmetics, fragile breakables and industrial parts. From automotive to e-commerce, PadPak® Guardian™ is suited to almost any packaging environment thanks to its ability to produce pads that offer strength or flexibility, depending upon what’s required.
Featuring the same high performance Ranpak is known for with an increased loft in the pad and more yield per foot, PadPak® Guardian™ can produce 48 inches of pad per second with no manual cutting or tearing, delivering time, labor and cost savings to Ranpak’s customers. The small machine footprint, easy to maneuver bundles and touch screen control box allows users to position almost anywhere on the packaging line and deliver pads directly where needed.
“PadPak® Guardian™ is Ranpak’s latest innovation we are bringing to market to drive our mission of delivering sustainable packaging solutions that improve supply chain performance and costs, reduce environmental impact, and support our customers’ growing business needs,” said Omar Asali, Chief Executive Officer of Ranpak. “We’re excited to introduce this technology to our North American customers to further increase their speed and performance, while enabling the shift towards environmentally friendly packaging in support of our commitment to deliver a better world.”
Ranpak’s paper-based packaging is 100% curbside recyclable, compostable and biodegradable, using paper that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
