Packaging Changes: What You Need to Know

You are going to be seeing some major changes in the packaging of Freeman’s products in the month of December. We thought you might be interested to hear why.

Throughout this year we have been working on substantial positive changes that will strengthen our company and our brand. A new website that includes informative information such as this blog, better product information and submittal documents are visible examples of our efforts. We also initiated a new testing and adjustment process throughout our supply chain to make sure our product meets your expectations. Customer feedback on our packaging helped us to rethink our box. The result was a complete redesign for the Freeman box. The new box is bigger, stronger, more visible and easier to carry. Additionally, it will contain the new Global Harmonized Standards of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, commonly known as GHS, warnings and pictograms as mandated by new OSHA regulations. (See our blog post Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for detailed information) Most importantly, it will deliver on our promise to you our customer: Quality Drywall Products.

Here’s what you need to know about the changes:Lite Box Front
