2019 in Review

This past year has been filled with numerous challenges and successes here at Allen Field!

In January, the Double Tab Header Hook was introduced. This hook adds an additional tab to secure heavier products on various rod sizes. Install in just one second and hold up to 5 lbs. firmly.

During West Pack in February, Allen Field unveiled the newest addition in the Hang Tab series—the Super Duty Hang Tab. Featuring superior strength by optimal material selection and increased weight capacity of 20 lbs.! This hang tab functions in two positions for both shipping convenience and display readiness.

In March, we launched the Pegboard Fastener Clip for POP displays! This innovative display component allows display designers and assemblers to freely position the product hooks. Maintaining proper backspacing between the pegboard and the display frame keeps your display looking new and appealing, while also lengthening the life of the display.

 

At the beginning of summer, we introduced two light-weighted packaging components. First, the Mini Side Mount Handle and then the PP905 Handhole Handle. Big packaging & shipping problems were addressed by utilizing small packaging solutions.

August saw our biggest sales event ever! Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date on our upcoming discounts and promotions. We also added two perfectly sized hangers to the Specialty Hanger series to ensure we carry the right solution for your product.

To coincide with our appearance at Pack Expo, the Strap Lock Handle was announced. This handle is made with strong materials, boasting an impressive carrying capacity of 80 lbs.!

After summer, Allen Field rolled out numerous packaging solutions to better serve our customers! First, we redesigned the Hang Eze Micro II to hold thicker header cards. Next, we changed the Dust Pouch of the PP800 to improve the carrying experience for users. Then, the newest Display Hook with a label holder was announced in October. It not only holds the merchandise but also creates eye-catching front space to show off important brand and product information.

As the holidays approached, we went back to the classics and updated the PP606 with a strategic flange corner and released the Partition Connector with Adhesive into the market. We are looking forward to the upcoming West Pack 2020. Make sure you stop by our booth (#5321) at the show to check out all the exciting products!

2019 was a remarkable year of growth. We extended our product lines to include portable case and electronic equipment handles and hardware for industrial carrying cases, musical equipment cases, and wooden furniture. In addition to over 100 new items, we pride ourselves on our flexibility to provide custom colors, sizes, finishes, and product combinations. Although our ambition keeps growing, our values remain the same. We will continue to serve you and your packaging, shipping, and display needs, and always deliver the finest products from our hands to yours.

Thank you for trusting us with your packaging challenges. The entire team at Allen Field wishes you a wonderful holiday season!
