Polyolefin shrink film manufacturer Clysar, LLC has announced that Associated Packaging, Inc., Gallatin, TN, USA has received its 2013 Distributor of the Year award. Clysar made the announcement at their “Shrink Different” distributor meeting, which was held during Pack Expo on September 23, 2013.

The award is presented annually to a company that demonstrates sustained growth; documented support for Clysar’s shrink packaging program; and a commitment to provide technical expertise and exceptional customer service to help Clysar customers achieve real bottom line improvements. Associated Packaging has been a Clysar distributor for more than 35 of the 50 years Clysar has been in business.

“Clysar distributors are the best of the best, and Associated Packaging is one of the truly great packaging distributors serving shrink film customers,” says Vicki Larson, Clysar’s director of sales and marketing. “Associated Packaging’s owner, Joe Smith, has been in packaging for 49 years—few people, or companies, know shrink film better. Thanks to Joe’s exceptional leadership, the company continues to excel year after year. We’re proud to honor them with their second lifetime Distributor of the Year award.”
