TriMas announced that its Rieke business has engineered a new trigger sprayer to meet rigorous testing criteria and design features for e-commerce applications.
Rieke develops and manufactures specialty dispensing and closure applications for the health, beauty and home care, food and beverage, and industrial markets. These high performance, value-added products are designed to enhance global customers’ ability to store, transport, process and dispense various products. Rieke’s products include plastic closure and dispensing systems, such as foamers, pumps and specialty sprayers, as well as steel and plastic closure caps and drum closures.
This would avoid additional processing time and cost, for example, related to adding tape on closure and nozzle locking mechanisms, using bubble wrap, and sealing products in zipper bags to contain leaks or shipping trigger sprayers separately.
Rieke has designed the Ultimate trigger sprayer to address the e-commerce issue of liquids leaking when shipped in the small parcel environment. This innovative product design, which meets ISTA 6-Amazon test criteria, has no secondary inner seals the consumer needs to remove and allows for refills/re-use. The Ultimate-E also targets to reduce merchandise damage during shipping, which would provide a savings to the e-commerce market channel.
President and Chief Executive Officer of TriMas, Thomas Amato said that each of their businesses focuses on product and process innovation to improve and grow. Rieke’s Ultimate-E trigger sprayer design is an excellent example of working collaboratively with customers to understand needs, even in the most dynamic environment, and offering practical product solutions.
