Innovation in Mold Design!

By: Sherry L. Baranek

Last month I had the opportunity to write about one of my favorite topics—wine—when I learned of how precision mold manufacturer R&D/Leverage helped Stacked Wines bring its innovative wine packaging to market.
Creator and company co-founder Matt Zimmer tired of drinking stale wine and envisioned a stylish, portable and recyclable packaging solution for informal consumption at parties and picnics. Matt and his partners sketched a practical, easily stored four-pack of stem-less wine glasses that vertically stacked to form the equivalent of one full 750ml bottle of wine.
The expression “it’s who you know” came into play when Matt sought a moldmaker to help him realize his dream. An industry connection led him to R&D, which specializes in the food and beverage, personal care and healthcare markets. Read about their collaboration here. Cheers!
