Duck Tape joins forces with Nerds for new tape
AVON, Ohio — If a shopper has ever wanted 10 yards of Nerds candy, a new product from Duck Tape has it covered. The two brands have teamed up to create a new tape that features the crunchy candy.
The 10-yard roll of tape is aimed at consumers interested in crafts, or personalizing notebooks and accessories.
“Nerds Duck Tape is sure to add a sweet twist to craft projects, themed décor, around-the-house repairs and so much more,” said Traci Finkelmeier, home and office marketing director at ShurTech, which markets Duck Tape. “This is a perfect blend. Nerds are known as the candy you can ‘eat in your own way,’ just as Duck Tape is a product you can use in your own way.”

Menasha Packaging facilities recognized by British Retail Consortium Global Standards
NEENAH, Wis. — For the second consecutive year, three Wisconsin-based Menasha Packaging facilities have been recognized by British Retail Consortium Global Standards, a global safety and quality certification program.
Menasha Packaging plants in Neenah and Hartford, Wis., achieved “A” -grade certifications for the BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials. The company’s Midwest Fulfillment Center, also located in Neenah, was awarded a BRC Global Standard Certificate for Storage and Distribution.
“The BRC Global Standards are deeply comprehensive and very few U.S. paper packaging suppliers are certified to this standard,” stated Ernest Gramer, Midwest Region Quality Manager at Menasha Packaging. “Having our facilities complete the BRC certification process gives our customers confidence in our systems and confirms our commitment to safety, legality and quality.”
The BRC Global Standards are highly regarded and widely used by suppliers and retailers worldwide since they aid in standardizing quality, safety, operational criteria and manufacturers’ fulfillment of legal obligations. Its Packaging and Packaging Materials standard is also a Global Food Safety Initiative recognized scheme.
BRC Global Standard audits are currently underway or in the works at additional Menasha Packaging facilities around the country.
