GREAT STUFF™ SMART DISPENSER™ Wins ADF Technical & Industrial Innovation Award for 2019

WILMINGTON, Del, Sept. 19, 2019 – Today, the Aerosol & Dispensing Forum (ADF) and Packaging of Perfume, Cosmetics & Design (PCD) announced GREAT STUFF™ SMART DISPENSER™, the winner of its annual Packaging Innovation Awards for 2019. The Awards showcase innovation for new technology and excellence in aerosol, dispensing, personal care and cosmetic packaging.

An innovative solution to make air sealing easier, more precise and with less product waste, the GREAT STUFF™ SMART DISPENSER™ provides no drip, less mess and greater control, with a dispenser that is reusable for up to 30 days. It was designed to specifically respond to customer pain points over precision, mess and reusability. With the use of the GREAT STUFF™ SMART DISPENSER™, customers can seal air drafts, lower energy costs, and prevent moisture build up – all with a more efficient and effective dispensing mechanism. 


"Given the GREAT STUFF™ SMART DISPENSER™ was launched in November 2018, this award less than a year later is a testament to its overall impact on the market in a very short amount of time,” said Dan Schroer, R&D Program Leader, Performance Building Solutions. “From concept ideation to the final design, we worked directly with our customers to develop this patented, best-in-class dispenser to meet the needs of professional contractors and homeowners alike. We’re honored to be named a winner in the Industrial & Technical application category for 2019, especially given the category is ranked highest technical achievement of all categories.”

Winning entries were announced at the ADF&PCD New York conference on Wednesday, September 18, where 2,000+ senior players and decision-makers, from top 20 brands to independent startups, attended North America's only dedicated event for the aerosol, dispensing, perfume and cosmetic packaging industry. In an awards ceremony led by Christophe Pradère, CEO & Founder of BETC Design, GREAT STUFF™ SMART DISPENSER™ was given one of the top honors. Entries were judged on a set of criteria based on excellence in the areas of innovation and represent a wide range of high-quality production and industry-leading innovation.


This year’s judging process was overseen by an independent jury of packaging experts from leading brands, universities, organizations and the media. The ADF&PCD New York Packaging Innovation Awards are designed to showcase aerosol, dispensing, personal care and cosmetic packaging innovations.
