ERIE, Pa. (December 4, 2007) – Erie Plastics, a Top 100 injection molder operating in the U.S. and Europe and specializing in the design, development and manufacturing of advanced closure systems, has launched a new website.

The company’s latest closure innovation, Pop N’ Shake™ was recently featured as Packaging Europe’s “Product of the Week” and made headlines around the globe in the packaging and beverage industries as a breakthrough closure offering an on-demand, “blended drink” experience to consumers.

Also highlighted on Erie Plastics’ new website are two, well-received company programs – “Design-a-Bago” and the “Statue of Liberty.”

Design-a-Bago – Mobile teams solving product development challenges:

Erie Plastics has multi-functional, “Design-a-Bago” teams comprised of engineers, designers, quality assurance and customer service personnel, who travel to customer sites to solve issues and remove road blocks in the packaging, product dispensing and distribution arenas. Design-a-Bago team selection is customized to the need at hand, and members are skilled at rapid, onsite creation of new concepts for tooling.

Upon setting criteria for project success, the teams brainstorm and present (within days) designs, concepts and even useful models, and upon approval, set the stage for Erie Plastics to immediately start construction of prototype tools.

Statue of Liberty – “Liberating” problem molds and improving production capabilities within 90 days:

With more than 45 years’ expertise in solving mold and production challenges, Erie Plastics takes tired, weary and distressed molds (see the connection?) and improves them through a range of services in the Statue of Liberty program, including:

•Mold capability assessments
•Mold life-expectancy estimates
•In-depth analysis of problem molds
•Development of long-term strategies to improve output and costs
