Tri-Plex Packaging Corporation sweeps three awards in the 31st Annual 2009 Package of The Year Awards sponsored by the NJ Packaging Executives Club.
This highly prestigious industry awards event featured 80 competitive submissions from 56 different companies. The dinner and presentation was held at The Hanover Marriott Hotel in Whippany, NJ on November 5, 2009.

Spending time among this many innovative packaging professionals and leaders in the industry is truly energizing. As for the awards, to have our designs acknowledged is deeply rewarding. There were some really great packaging designs entered for consideration. I can't wait to bring the awards back to my team. I am very proud of our work and being a member of the NJPEC."
