OAK BROOK, IL – December 9, 2015 – The Novipax brand was established on April 1, 2015, when Sealed Air completed the sale of its North American tray and absorbent pads business to Atlas Holdings LLC.
“We are all excited to have completed the successful transition from Sealed Air’s Cryovac® brand to our new Novipax brand of trays and absorbent pads,” said Bob Larson, Chief Executive Officer of Novipax. “While the embossed name on the bottom of our trays has changed, we have retained the same commitment to quality and service Sealed Air provided over the years. We now have our own highly professional sales team in place whose sole focus is providing our customers with high-quality foam trays and absorbent pads.”
While its broad product line will remain intact, Novipax will shift even more of its focus to customer service and new product development. “We want to prove to the world that trays—and especially pads, are not just a commodity,” explained Larson. “Novipax will continue to lead the industry with unique offerings that utilize advanced pad and tray technologies. We have a number of new products in the pipeline that will enhance product presentation and promote food safety for our customers in the United States and around the world.”
As part of the transition, Novipax is launching a branding initiative and website to reflect the company’s new direction.
