The Ted Klein Tube of the Year Competition emphasizes tube packaging sophistication and consumer appeal.
The Tube of the Year competition provides a platform for members to showcase the best and most innovative squeeze tubes in our industry. For more than seventy (70) years The Tube Council has served as an open forum for member squeeze tube manufacturing companies, our supply base, customers, end users, and educators to discuss and act on industry related topics & initiatives.
In addition to the winners in the different market categories, each year, a special acknowledge is given to the one squeeze tube entry that stands apart from the rest of the field and is selected as the recipient of the “Ted Klein Tube of the Year Award” for Best in Show!
Winning entries selected for “BEST in CATEGORIES” included a selection of tubes from the personal care, pharmaceutical, and oral care market areas as well as for products in the sustainable tube and innovative component or process categories. Historically, extruded plastic tubes have made up the lion’s share of submissions in the personal care category. However, for this most recent competition, the sustainable tube category greatly outpaced the other award categories in the number of submissions reflect the importance the industry and the consumer goods companies have placed on the need for environmentally friendly packages for their products.
