In August, we believed that Berry Global would offer both continuity but also new paths to growth. Today, we look back with gratitude for the stability and investment that’s ensued.

As part of Berry Global, Laddawn has access to best-in-class technology in any number of new product categories. Today, we’re excited to bring Chicopee® brand wipers to our stock product lineup. You’ve told us that you sell industrial wipers and that you’d like us to offer the Chicopee line. Well, here they are.

Chicopee has the broadest array of industrial wipers, engineered for superior strength and efficiency, and produced in the U.S.A. Durawipe’s signature Spinlace® technology provides superb oil and water absorbency in a tough, tear resistant wiper. Veraclean® wipers are ultra-soft and thick for finishing touches and removing fine residue.

You’ll find 19 Durawipe industrial wipers, in light, medium and heavy duty, along with 4 Durawipe shop towels. For critical cleaning, we’ve included 10 Veraclean items (smooth or creped), priced well, in stock and ready to ship. These represent the heart of the Chicopee wiper lineup and you’ll find them in dispenser boxes (pop up and z-fold), flat packed and in jumbo rolls. We’ve even added floor stand and wall mount dispensers. For more, log on to or turn to page 60. I think you’ll like what you see.   

Of course, the Chicopee brand of wipers is just the first new category made possible by Berry Global. In the coming weeks and months, you’ll be able to log on to to find exciting new offerings in a number of categories, including banding film, hand stretch, shrink film, liners and more. Wipers are here. What would you like next? 

Finally, since Laddawn’s new Print Designer launch at Pack Expo, your feedback has been terrific. You’re searching for printed items 30% more often. With better color recognition, truer templates and a more intuitive suite of tools, you’re now designing all sides of your printed items. Then, as always, you’re getting prices, lead times and technical drawings in seconds. If you still have not logged on to quote a printed item at yet, check it out. You won’t look at print jobs in quite the same way again.

On behalf of all of us in Atlanta, Boston, Cedar Rapids, Dallas and Reno, here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
