Airtex Launches Innovative New Packaging

Airtex Fuel Pumps has launched new packaging that reduces shelf space while providing superior product protection through use of an innovative air tube design.
The inner pack design cushions and protects fuel pumps during shipment. Made from a see-through co-extrusion of low-density polyethylene film and nylon, the protective packaging offers superior air retention to ensure the fuel pump is protected through the supply chain.
Offering a 25% savings in shelf space, which enables a broader inventory mix and better space utilization, the new boxes are manufactured with certified fiber sourcing through the Sustainable Forestry Initiative program.
“Airtex is dedicated to delivering our customers quality fuel pumps in quality packaging. The air tube design minimizes the potential for shipping damage and offers protection from point-of-manufacture to point-of-installation,” states Ray Swetman, Airtex senior vice president of sales and marketing. “The shelf space savings are huge, and a real differentiator for our product line.”
