FCA, LLC, a provider of custom industrial packaging products and OEM packaging services, is pleased to announce that it will provide its innovative Collapsible Utility Box (C.U.B.) to Living Lands and Waters, a non-profit organization that has grown to become be the only “industrial strength” river cleanup organization of its kind.
Chad Pregracke, Founder of Living Lands and Waters and the 2013 CNN Hero of the Year noticed FCA’s Collapsible Utility Box display in Moline and immediately recognized the potential within his organization for its ease of use and practicality. The C.U.B. is a unique collapsible box that addresses a market need for custom collapsible technology, but at an affordable price.
“Some collapsible boxes exist currently in the market, but none that are as easy to set up and take down as the C.U.B.” Said Mike Thompson, Director of FCA’s Packaging Engineering Center. “This box has been designed with ease-of-use in mind, but particularly with the goal of dramatically reducing our customers’ freight costs, distribution costs, labor costs, and system costs. Any ship loose parts, custom parts, or other applications that can benefit from collapsible storage should consider the C.U.B. for both ease of use and the packaging savings that go straight to the bottom line.”
John Bostrom, Operations Manager at LL&W said “We are pleased to be working with FCA to provide packaging for many of the products and applications that help run our business. After taking a look around our shop, I think we have just about a million uses for [FCA’s] product. We are excited to be using something so practical. We hope to be ordering these boxes from FCA for many applications in the future. As a company, FCA shares many of the same values as Living Lands & Waters, and we are pleased to be working with a company that grew up in the same area.”
David Wilsted, VP of Sales and Marketing for FCA said “We were delighted that Chad Pregracke took note of our product and contacted us with interest. We are aware of the good that Chad’s organization has done in our area, and in the world, and look forward to being an ongoing part of LL&W’s future by providing practical and sustainable packaging to support their mission.”
