Sustainable, biodegradable, and recyclable protective packaging solution offers plastic-free alternative to traditional plastic bubble roll
Ranpak Holdings Corp. (“Ranpak”) (NYSE: PACK), a global leader of environmentally sustainable, paper-based packaging solutions for e-commerce and industrial supply chains, today announced the North American launch of the Geami MS Mini™ wrapping system, a sustainable, biodegradable, recyclable and plastic-free alternative solution to traditional plastic bubble roll.
Geami MS Mini is an ideal solution for addressing the needs of warehouse packing stations, where space is at a premium and efficiency is paramount. The robust design of the solution features an impressively small footprint, maximizing space on the table or counter for wrapping items. From low volume operations to mega-volume, omni channel fulfillment retailers, there is a shift in consumer demand to be more compact and cost conscious while still maintaining quality. Ranpak’s new Geami MS Mini addition checks all of these boxes.
The paper-based protective packaging solution combines a smaller footprint with the protective power of die cut paper which expands into a 3D honeycomb structure. A single sheet without an inner leaf provides strong protection and aesthetics with a focus on maximizing material efficiency. By locking angled paper cells together, items can be wrapped securely without the need for adhesive tape or cutting. The converter can be placed at any packing station where individual items require a protective wrap, with quick integration and an easy training period for packers.
The Geami MS Mini solution also offers an outstanding in-the-box presentation and unpacking experience. Geami’s honeycomb texture provides a unique and memorable look for packaging, enhancing the unboxing moment for consumers. Ranpak’s plastic-free Geami® paper provides a smart alternative to plastic wrapping for companies considering the impacts of potential future regulations that would ban plastic packaging, while also improving brand reputation and customer loyalty.
“Single-use plastic, bubble rolls are a scourge on our environment that chokes our landfills and pollutes our oceans. Our customers are seeking ways to reduce their plastic packaging and Geami is a perfect solution to help them reduce/eliminate plastic wrapping,” said Omar Asali, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Ranpak. “We are excited to launch the Geami MS Mini solution and provide our customers with a plastic-free protective packaging option that will improve their sustainability performance, enhance the unboxing experience for their customers, and provide the small converter footprint that they may need.”
