TricorBraun worked to solve the complex problem created when the bottle ends up being more than a bottle. The current bottle was leaking. By building a new mold and multiple rounds of testing, the end result was this 16oz HDPE multi-chamber spray bottle with 70mm attached jar.

Company: Corr-Jensen Inc.

Product: Performix Iridium

Award: WorldStar Award Winner

TricorBraun worked to emulate the square design elements of the brand's 32-oz. square container but is scaled up for a larger two pound container. The design uses an existing standard 120mm neck finish and adds a step ring allowing a custom collar to 'snap' onto the bottle to square off the package. Design also incorporates a fully custom 'gas cap' style 120mm closure, Eye-catching PERFORMIX name embossing further enhances the brand message.

Company: Allmax

Product: Hexapro

Award: Certificate of Merit

TricorBraun worked to develop a closure that has a strong 'machine' look with large 'gear teeth' for ease of removal. The 3 and 5.5 pound bottles were designed proportionate to the closure size to make the entire package function together to improve consumer experience in closure removal. The design also features scoop-in-neck technology to show customers that the manufacturer truly cares about customer ease-to-use and waste reduction.
