Packaging for Hardware, Fasteners, Screws & More - CMG Plastics

If you buy screws, nails, deck fasteners, nuts, washers, anchors, or any other type of small hardware from a home improvement store or e-commerce website, what type of packaging would you get?

Depending on the weight and number of items per package, these products are typically packaged in a flimsy cardboard box or a plastic container with cardboard top. Some hardware comes in a plastic box with a top that pops back into place.

There are plenty of problems with standard packaging options for hardware. They’re not very durable. Although some can be resealed, the seal is rarely tight and secure, and after opening and closing a few times, it stops resealing. Many packages end up in a landfill because they aren’t recyclable.

As an industry pioneer in the manufacturing of desk fasteners, CMG Plastics understands the needs and challenges of both construction companies and DIY homeowners. That experience makes us uniquely qualified to create resealable, recyclable plastic buckets and containers to your specifications.

Because you don’t need to use food-certified material, we would be able to incorporate materials that don’t have to go through a strict testing and approval process with the FDA. Much of these materials would otherwise end up in a landfill.

Customers, investors, and shareholders are demanding sustainability, and that applies to hardware packaging. CMG can produce custom plastic buckets and containers that include post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials, which translates to less waste and a smaller environmental impact. While food containers are typically transparent, color is secondary for hardware, which creates opportunities to use more recycled materials.

Custom products from CMG are also far more durable than conventional hardware packaging with a more reliable seal to prevent damage and spills. Whether the lid screws on or clicks into place, it could be reused repeatedly without any noticeable degradation in performance.

If your brand is looking to develop hardware packaging that’s sustainable, durable, and resealable, custom recyclable plastic buckets and containers from CMG Plastics could be the solution you need.
