Reagents can pose a health risk to people, property and the environment if they aren’t packaged properly.

The engineer explained his company would be distributing a reagent product to their customers across the United States. And, they needed a packaging solution, fast. He explained he had seen several packaging designs in use at his company and asked if SupplyOne could help.
