Challenge

A global leader in workplace technology, Crestron Electronics provides leading companies with conference room and collaboration solutions. Its flagship product, the Crestron Mercury, is an all-in-one tabletop solution that combines the technology to facilitate video conferencing platforms and collaboration applications. 

After investing millions of dollars and thousands of hours into the research and development of the Crestron Mercury, the company then directed their focus to how they were going to successfully ship this sensitive electronic equipment to customers around the globe. The goal: a sustainable packaging solution that would provide superior damage protection and improve product presentation during the unboxing experience. 

Solution

Working with Crestron’s shipping partner, Next Press, Sealed Air recommended Korrvu® Retention packaging. Korrvu is a high-performance solution that uses corrugated frames and flexible film to hold items in place, while simultaneously showcasing the product within the box. 

Since their switch to Korvuu, Crestron has had no reports of damage from customers and have also saved valuable warehouse storage space compared to foam packaging materials they previously used. 

“Korrvu gave us a great option with a great presentation without a lot of bulk and other things around our products that are not environmentally friendly,” said Joseph Sarrasin, head of Product and Unified Communications at Crestron Electronics. 

Doing more with less is the key to sustainable packaging. With Korrvu, Crestron now uses smaller, rightsized boxes to ship products – which ultimately lowers emissions, leaves a smaller carbon footprint and reduces shipping costs. The solution is also curbside recyclable after removing the plastic film.  

Results

  • 72% volumetric storage reduction of packaging foams 
  • 90% PE foam source reduction 
  • Rightsized packs to reduce logistics and transportation spend by 20% 
  • Improved product presentation during the customers’ unboxing experience 
  • Increased sustainability by using recyclable materials
