After initial trial and early market entry for SLIM CHILLERS, it was evident that initial sales volumes would exceed expectations. Additional product container capacity would be needed to support the demand for SLIM CHILLERS – and, to meet the subsequent re-orders.
Priority Plastics quickly identified existing tooling to add additional capacity to support the needed product output. However, with the long term in mind, we built a multi-cavity tool to support the continued growth expected in the near future. At the same time, our customer expressed interest in having containers labeled prior to our out-bound transit. This labeling capability would simplify their supply chain – and, shorten the time in getting the product to retail shelves.
In response, Priority Plastics invested in a new P/S labeler to support the immediate needs of Temperance Distilling. Our customer further invested in Priority Plastics by committing to a long term agreement for supply – and, agreed to supporting next stage development of their business into new technology and new bottle sizes.
In late 2019, Priority Plastics and Temperance developed a smaller PET round container to support a retail size of alcoholic beverage “frozen pop” product. Like its larger counterpart, it was quickly determined that additional capacity and rapid support would be needed to meet the demand of the upcoming summer season.
Within three months, Priority Plastics supported and delivered on three new custom mold sets to support our client’s projected needs and their resulting demand to their supply chain; additional labeling capacity was delivered as well.
