Press release date: June 19, 2007

DEERFIELD, Ill. (June 19, 2007) - The AirSpeed Smart Inflatable packaging system from Pregis Corporation is the newest and most convenient solution for on-demand, space-saving packaging. The precision-engineered system produces clear, inflatable air pillow cushions that are an innovative alternative to bulky void fill materials.

Offering portable, table-top convenience, AirSpeed Smart can be installed in the most compact work areas. The system's small footprint and light weight (26 pounds) allow the self-contained unit to free up valuable packing table space. The AirSpeed Smart also offers maximum flexibility because it can be easily moved to suit any packaging environment.

"The AirSpeed Smart is amazingly simple to use and provides the high-performance, cost-effective results that packaging operations look for today," says Tom Wetsch, vice president of product development at Pregis. "Providing a whole new standard of reliability, the system is engineered for durability and minimal maintenance and is suitable for a variety of packaging applications."

Cushions made on the Airspeed Smart system can be created on demand so they are readily available and reduce the need to store bulky packaging materials. As a cost-effective, lightweight alternative to loose fill, paper, foam and bubble packaging materials, the cushions provide maximum protection while reducing material and shipping costs, because they fill larger voids without increasing package weight. Inflatable packaging also provides environmental benefits because the cushions are recyclable and reusable.

Advanced controls allow operators to produce a wide range of cushion sizes, giving customers the versatility to select the lengths and air-fill levels that best suit their needs. The AirSpeed Smart utilizes Pregis' market-leading film, thus guaranteeing maximum performance.
