There's a name change coming for the thermoforming division of The Visual Pak Companies.
Formerly known as Blisters Inc., the new operation is now called VP Plastics and Engineering, the Waukegan, Ill.-based company said.
“We are best known for our engineering and thermoform packaging so it is important to adapt our name to align with our product offerings,” said CEO Clayton Bolke of Visual Pak, in a statement.
The new name, the company said, will reflect “extensive thermoform and engineering offerings while maintaining their current image of providing the highest quality packaging and services.”
The thermoforming division dates back to 1980 and “has long been known for its custom thermoform blister packaging,” the company said. But blister packaging now represents a smaller percentage of the overall business.
