Packaging professionals aren’t in the mainstream.

Its very important to obtain a referral when seeking a seasoned packaging professional.

Depending on your line of business and industry, a specialized packaging professional

may suit your needs best.  Larry Dull, one such seasoned packaging professional, has

varied experience, but is particularly familiar with the packaging of chemicals or hazardous

materials. Most of his patents have been awarded to him for significant contribution,

engineering, and development of such specialized packaging.

Corporate giants, such as DuPont, Calgon, Kodak, Owens-Corning, and Syngenta know Larry’s value

and have profitted both from his knowledge and resourcefulness.  Larry recieved his first

patent while working for Ciba-Geigy in the 1990’s and was just awarded another patent

for innovative packaging last month.

There are a couple of packaging professionals online proclaiming to be “the” packaging

expert you need.  Next time you speak with them, ask them how many patents they’ve

been granted for innovative packaging concepts.

Packaging Engineer

Packaging engineers aren’t usually what first comes to mind when we think of an engineer.

Packaging engineers play a crucial role in our world today. In order for hazardous materials
to be safely transported it is necessary for an experienced packaging engineer
to design and test the proposed packaging materials. That packaging engineer also
has to understand shipping standards, which may vary depending on type of
transportation used. International packaging regulations are much more stringent
than national standards oftentimes requiring further and more specific
evaluation by a packaging engineer. A company can save a lot of money by
investing in a packaging engineer experienced with shipping standards and
procedures. This investment will save in the long term.

Packaging Professional

A true “packaging professional” belongs to professional packaging organizations
such as IoPP or ISTA IoPP, the Institute of Packaging Professionals, based
in Illinois, boasts thousands of professional packaging graduates located
around the country. The members of  ISTA, International Safe Transit Association,
may have ties to IoPP, as well as the benefits of testing facilities which is an
integral part of providing excellent professional packaging services.
