Empowered Products Announces Increased Efficiency on Production of PINKÂ® and GunOilÂ® Libido-Enhancement Supplements
LAS VEGAS, Dec. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Empowered Products, Inc. (OTCBB: EMPO) is pleased to report increased efficiency on blister pack production via its newly purchased Starview Blister Sealer machine. The machine is currently being utilized onsite at the company’s Las Vegas, Nevada, bottling facility for blister pack production of Empowered Products’ two primary libido supplement brands; PINKÃ‚® Elevate and GunOilÃ‚® High Caliber. The company is producing both single and double packs of its supplements with plans to produce multi-serve packs – eventually leading to sample-pack production of some of its other wellness products under the popular PINKÃ‚® and GunOilÃ‚® trademark brands. Blister packs of this style consist of a carded backing with a clear, pre-formed plastic covering allowing the contents to be visually examined by the consumer and are typically offered at checkout counters of convenience stores, supermarkets, and various retail outlets.
Empowered Products’ management selected the Starview EBS Series Blister Sealer based on its multi-faceted functionality and an expected quick Return-On-Investment (ROI). The EBS Series runs paper-to-paper, plastic-to-plastic, skin packaging systems, roller die cutters, vacuum formers, pharma and food thermo sealers, and vacuum packaging with or without gas and accommodates up to a 14″ x 18″ die. The machine is expandable to accommodate automated feeds and off-loader functionality and can store and manage up to 200 programs with auto-count and store-run features enabling Empowered Products to produce up to 60 blister packs per cycle – or around 1,200 packs per hour. According to Empowered Products, the cost of the machine was $21,800 with an expected Return-On-Investment (ROI) of just 1.5 production runs.
Empowered Products’ president and CEO, Scott Fraser, commented, “Today, in our ninth year of continuous operations and our first year as a publicly traded company, our focus remains on increasing sales and brand awareness of our PINKÃ‚® and GunOilÃ‚® lines to enhance shareholder value. In our pursuit of market-share expansion in the global wellness arena, we are constantly working toward maximizing our manufacturing efficiency at our Las Vegas production facility, and we are ecstatic about the cost savings and quick ROI expected via our new Starview Blister Sealer machine.”
