High-Tech Kubox Shipping Solution Wins DuPont Packaging Award for Being Easier, Stronger, Cheaper, Reusable, Lightweight, Compact, and Requiring No Tools or Employees to Assemble

15 May 2015

Solving one of the shipping and freight industry’s' biggest challenges, Compadre LLC, a leading packaging design, testing and engineering firm based in Austin, Texas, announced today that its newly patented Kübox shipping containers have won the highly coveted DuPont Award for Packaging Innovation. Compadre's former CEO Darryl Kelinske now CEO of Perennial Design LLC accepted the award at a ceremony held at DuPont's Headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware. 

"The DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation celebrates innovation in design and execution and puts a spotlight on the value packaging can bring in many markets," said Yasmin Siddiqi, DuPont Packaging Awards Program Leader. "The Kübox is an excellent example."

Kübox is "Easy Crating" and used to ship heavy, bulky, fragile, or valuable items. It fills a void between one-use corrugated boxes and more permanent wood crating and plastic cases. This paper-based crate fills the need when customers want something lighter, less expensive and easier to use than the traditional wooden crates or plastic cases, but a corrugated box is not enough. "In the packaging industry you rarely see something that is really innovative," said Henry Heil, Compadre's VP of Engineering. "Kübox is going to make a difference, everyone can use it."  

Packing and unpacking is a simple process that involves no staples, nails or screws, which means no tools are required to open or reseal containers. Using the Kübox solution, customers easily can build their own easy crating solution to ship their package. 

After successful sales in the U.S. and winning the DuPont Award for Packaging Innovation, Compadre/Perennial Design LLC is now rolling out the Kübox product line internationally.

Mr. Darryl Kelinske CEO of Perennial Design LLC is thrilled to announce its first step in developing international sales by forming a strategic alliance with Mrs. Deborah Assaly, president of Paramount Paper Products Ltd in Montreal.  

“Paramount has close to 60 years experience in distribution of Industrial Packaging Products, specializing in corrugated cartons and shipping supplies.We see this as the perfect alliance” said Mr. Darryl Kelinske
