Vulcan Announces Eco-Pullbox - World's First Biodegradable Product Tether
Responsible businesses and companies are embracing new environmental regulations. Vulcan Spring & Mfg. Co., inventor of the industry-leading Pullbox® product security tether, has developed a biodegradable and compostable version of its flagship product.
"As companies strive to achieve new environmental standards and also establish their ecological credentials with increasingly savvy customers, our new Eco-Pullbox helps support their efforts," explained Bob Gustafson, Vulcan's Vice President of Sales.
The Vulcan Eco-Pullbox employs a proprietary material that is biodegradable and compostable. The material is used to house the tether wire and eliminates an entire source of plastic content into the waste stream. It has similar characteristics to the original housing material but offers an ecologically friendly alternative that enhances responsible environmental compliance.
"Vulcan invented the security tether category and followed it up with other innovations including alarmed-tethers and the miniVS, and today we are proud to again break new ground in our industry," explained Gustafson. "When it comes to the environment every little bit helps and we plan to partner with our customers so they can meet whatever green goals they set for themselves and their businesses."
Vulcan Spring & Mfg. Co. has pioneered Constant Force and Variable Force spring technologies. We bring our knowledge of materials, engineering, energy and force to every challenge we face. Our single goal is to create the ideal solution to our customers' needs. We have developed PULLBOX® product security devices, plastic scrolls for informational displays, counterbalances for beverage truck doors, and the revolutionary SmartSpring for simplified inventory control. We have manufactured over 6,000 individual products for more than 2,000 customers. Our experience and computerized manufacturing equipment allow us to deliver the shortest time to market in the industry.
More than 30 years ago, the first commercial application of a Vulcan spring was used to power the speech mechanism in the "Talking G.I. Joe" doll. Today, our springs are employed in a wide range of applications where exceptional design, high quality materials and superior manufacturing techniques are required to meet customer needs.
