Leading polyolefin shrink film manufacturer Clysar, LLC (clysar.com), announced that Harder Corp. (hardercorp.com), headquartered in Madison, WI, is its 2015 Distributor of the Year. The award was presented at the Clysar annual distributor meeting, held at Carmine’s Restaurant, Las Vegas, in conjunction with Pack Expo 2015.

The award celebrates the elite distributor partner who demonstrates sustained growth; value-added support for Clysar’s shrink packaging program; and a commitment to provide technical expertise and exceptional customer service excellence in shrink packaging. This is the second time Harder Corp. has won the award.

“2015 was a banner year for Harder Corp., and we are especially pleased to present the top award to them. Harder is one of the truly outstanding packaging distributors serving our shrink packaging customers,” says Vicki Larson, Clysar’s vice president of sales. “We appreciate the commitment and differentiated expertise demonstrated by Harder’s leadership and associates, and we congratulate them on their achievement.”

To win the award, Clysar distributors must demonstrate an exceptional ability to meet customer demand for critical performance qualities, true sustainability, package appeal and lowest total cost. Harder’s long-standing record for optimizing shrink film performance on the customer’s packaging lines—and delivering solutions for challenging packaging applications—contributed to their being named Distributor of the Year a second time in less than a decade.
