INDA Announces WOW Innovation Award Finalists

March 15, 2017

Berry Plastics, Elsner Engineering and Kimberly-Clark nominated for wipes innovations

Competition for the 2017 World of Wipes Innovation Award has been narrowed to three finalists and attendees at the World of Wipes International Conference June 12-15 in Nashville, TN,  will have key deciding votes in selecting the winner.

The companies in the running for the prestigious award presented annually by INDA are: Berry Plastics’ Chicopee Microfiber Floor Care System, Elsner Engineering’s Glueless Tail Tie for rolled wipes and Kimberly-Clark Corporation’s Huggies Natural Care Extra Sensitive Baby Wipes.

The products all address previously unanswered needs in the marketplace. They include Chicopee’s disposable microfibre mop that makes cleaning more hygienic, safer, and economical for facility managers; Elsner’s glueless rolled wipes production option that helps eliminates material compliance issues for wipes manufacturers; and Huggies wipes that address neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurse concerns for the fragile, compromised skins of premature infants.

Attendees at WOW 2017 will have the opportunity to interact with and learn from the top companies who are changing the face of the wipes industry, and gain essential industry insights from an outstanding roster of speakers during the conference at the Gaylord Opryland Resort.

The professionals who come to WOW hold an important one-third of the vote in their hands. The award finalists will make their presentations on June 13 and the winner will be announced on the morning of June 15, capping off the conference focused exclusively on wipes. Last year, more than 400 attendees from every area of the wipes sector were at WOW and INDA expects an equally strong turnout with the continued growth and evolution in this segment.

WOW 2017 promises to be a valuable, must-attend conference offering relevant and timely insights, information and statistics from industry leaders on consumer and industrial wipes, the threats to flushable wipes, regulatory issues, product safety and testing, developments in substrates, sustainability, and more.
