Success Stories

"I had to get out of wax boxes."

Fewer retailers would accept my product in wax-coated boxes.

The market is changing, and my customers just can't accept wax anymore. So, I asked my carton supplier to make the switch to SurfSHIELD and FluteSHIELD coatings from Cascades Sonoco. Not only am I evolving with my customers' needs, but I've significantly reduced my own product losses during shipping. My product has never arrived in better condition!

Success Stories

"I'm so glad I made the switch."

I've been shipping wine to my customers for over 15 years in boxes with standard partitions.

When I found out about the water-based, anti-abrasive coatings available through Cascades Sonoco, I asked my packaging facility to implement their solution. Today, I've reclaimed almost 70% of my previous product losses. And my customers love that they are able to recycle the boxes my bottles are shipped in.
