Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Packaging Proves Flexible Amid Covid-19
...IRIS USA, the U.S. division of Japanese-based household products manufacturer IRIS Ohyama, announced plans in April to add face mask production to its 570,000-square-foot, 250-employee manufacturing plant in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. Most of its U.S. business had been focused on plastic food storage bins, pet products such as litter boxes and pans and ready-to-assemble furniture.
