Oil In Box Ensures Eco-Friendly Engine Oil Packaging
The company has launched a range of its Premium engine and selected workshop oils in an exclusive 15 litre oil-in-box format, marking a first for oil storage and application in the UK aftermarket. The new pack combines skills from three DS Smith divisions-the bag is from bag-in-box experts Rapak, the tap from injection moulded dispenser specialists Worldwide Dispensers, and the cardboard box from DS Smith Packaging Rawcliffe.
Millers Oils says the oil-in-box solution combines convenience with a more sustainable pack that provides a credible alternative to expensive packaging waste disposal. Unique features of the Millers Oils design include:
- Twin handles for improved usability
- 'Box shape' is ideal for easy stacking and storage
- Handy 15 litre capacity-easy pour feature
The design of the pack-with tamper proof, twin walled, sealed bag placed within a Millers Oils- branded cardboard box-makes it easier to handle, stack and transport, while the sturdy box offers additional protection for the contents. The easy-access large bore tap (sold separately) ensures safe dispensing with no glugging and minimal spillage and product waste. These benefits make the pack highly practical in a workshop environment.
At the same time, the oil-in-box format is simpler to dispose of than standard plastic or metal oil drums, which helps to minimise waste disposal costs. Equally important, the pack offers a valuable carbon footprint reduction since the cardboard box is fully recyclable while plastic waste is reduced by 84%.
"Working with Rapak has allowed us to introduce a new type of packaging into the lubricants industry that is extremely beneficial for both our customers and the environment," comments Howard Crossley, Automotive Product Manager at Millers Oils.
"Like all other markets, the aftermarket sector has had to adapt to changes in behaviour and environmental policy and Millers Oils is leading the way with an inventive new response to support changing market needs".
