Eden Prairie, MN, United States, 2007/04/12 - DDL, a leading package, product and material testing services laboratory, has expanded both its Minnesota-based testing facility and its menu of service offerings.
DDL is now able to provide Package Design, Development & Prototyping Services, designed to help manufacturers and package engineers design packaging that will satisfy industry requirements and successfully pass package testing and validation procedures.
"We feel that there is definitely a market for prototyping services," said John Hart, CEO of DDL Inc. "Packaging often fails testing procedures because it isn't properly developed in the design and prototyping stages."
Package Development & Prototyping Services from DDL include:
• Package design & consultation
• Primary, secondary and shipping unit packaging
• Rapid package prototyping
• Small volume production
• Project management
• Regulatory compliance & feasibility testing
• Gap analysis for compliance to ISO 11607
• Environmental conditioning
• Cold chain packaging support
• Altitude testing
"By offering comprehensive package development & prototyping services, DDL hopes to minimize the need for re-testing and help customers deliver their products to market on time," said Patrick Nolan, COO of DDL Inc. "Combining package design, prototyping, development and testing services reduces the risk of packaging failing to meet industry requirements."
