“Cheers!” to the Flat Plastic Wine Bottle That’s Perfect for Shipping!

“Cheers!” to the Flat Plastic Wine Bottle That’s Perfect for Shipping!

The wine bottle may be nothing new, but a new “flattened” PET bottle is taking the U.K. by storm, and has even been recognized by Dow as a Diamond finalist in it’s 2018 Awards for Packaging Innovation.

The demand for this new bottle came from a simple problem: The wine industry was losing nearly 100 million dollars a year in failed home deliveries.

This Month’s Employee Spotlight falls on Sandy Lotz!

This Month’s Employee Spotlight falls on Sandy Lotz!

Posted on June 7, 2018 by in News, Uncategorized with no comments

Sandy has been with the Crayex family for 19 years, and as the receptionist she is often the first person a visitor will see when walking into our Piqua, Ohio offices. Sandy originally started her career through a temp agency who thought she would be a good fit, but it was the family oriented nature of Crayex that drew her to stay.

When she isn’t greeting people on the phone or in person at the office, Sandy enjoys spending time with her children, or four grandchildren; Bryce, Brynn, Kingston and Konner. In fact, you can usually find Sandy attending their sporting events, or at the United Methodist Church in Jackson Center where she and her husband Bruce are members.

We thank Sandy for serving as the smiling face of Crayex for almost 2 decades, and we hope she stays a part of the Crayex family for many more years to come!

In our April of 2018 edition of Employee Spotlight we’re getting to know Jaymee Donovan!

Jaymee has been running our in-house lab here at Crayex since January of 2015, and says her favorite part about the company is working for a family run business.

When she’s not at work Jaymee loves being outdoors! She particularly enjoys hunting, fishing, boating and horse riding, and she even owns her own horse, Archie. She and her husband of 19 years, Mark also are the proud parents of two boys, 13 year old Garret and 11 year old Cole, and can usually be found cheering them on at their football games and wrestling matches for St. Marys Ohio schools. Jaymee also has a furry member of her family – a dog named Mel!

Posted on March 29, 2018 by in News, Uncategorized with no comments

The Crayex Sales team has a new member this week in Sam Nappi, who will be our representative for Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri!

Originally drawn to the industry by a friend who offered him a job at his company, Sam has 25 years of experience spent gaining a wide market knowledge and over that time has become an expert in food and beverage packaging. When asked why he joined Crayex Sam says it was because he felt that the company had the “best team environment out of all the competitors.”

Outside of work Sam enjoys spending time with his family, attending his church, supporting the Special Olympics, gun collecting and cooking. He also enjoys spending time with his 8 year old Yorkie, Bella.

Welcome aboard Sam!
