Thermal Shield® Acquires Xpander Pak®: 6/30/2014

   Thermal Shield® Products, A temperature sensitive packaging manufacturer and converter has acquired the assets of International Foam Packaging LLC. previously located in Richmond, VA. The sale included all physical assets, inventory, manufacturing and converting equipment as well as intellectual property including patents, copyrights, and trademarks.

   The primary product line manufactured by International Foam was called Xpander Pak®, A foam expansion mailer that doesn’t use harmful chemicals to expand. All manufacturing equipment to make the Xpander Pak® mailers has been moved to Thermal Shields® new corporate headquarters in Indianapolis, IN. Some former employees have also been given employment at Thermal Shield.

   "Xpander Pak® was the first and original brand of foam expansion mailers in the marketplace, and has a loyal following of customers not just in North America but world-wide. Customers in diverse industries from electronics to clinical labs, and others recognize Xpander Pak® as a safe alternative to foam-in-place. It’s one of the most durable and insulating mailers made today.

   We like to call it an All-In-One-Package because you don’t need a box, cooler, tape or void fill like you normally would if sending out an insulated or perishable package. Best of all, shipping costs are more than halved VS. an EPS foam cooler because it’s one of the few products that fall below UPS dimensional weight charges." Said James Branham, The Companies President

   For shipments under 2 cu ft. there really is no better value than Xpander Pak®. With a visibility and presence in international markets, Xpander Pak® will allow us unique cross selling opportunities for our other complimentary Thermal Shield® Products.
