ACCO Brands Introduces Wilson Jones® Ultra Duty & Heavy Duty Binders

Stocks in this article: ACCO

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wilson Jones®, a unit of ACCO Brands and the inventor of the three ring binder, is proud to be celebrating 120 years of American manufacturing. This milestone comes in conjunction with the launch of two new product lines: Ultra Duty Binders and Heavy Duty Binders. Produced in ACCO Brands' Booneville, MS, Ogdensburg, NY and Ontario, CA manufacturing facilities, these new binders are notably more stylish, durable and guaranteed to last. 

The Wilson Jones team conducted in-depth research to determine how people organize, understand how binders are used, and reinvent this tried-and-true accessory to match the modern individual's preferences. As a result, we crafted new eye-catching colors and improved the durability of our binders to the point of being able to guarantee their performance.

Over the past five years ACCO Brands has also made significant investments in improving all three of our U.S. binder manufacturing facilities to continuously support the creation of new jobs and increase output capacity. In addition to purchasing new equipment in every location the organization completely renovated its flagship manufacturing plant in Booneville, MS. ACCO Brands has also strived to work with an increasingly domestic supplier base. Approximately 65% of all raw materials used in Wilson Jones binders are made in the United States.

"We are very excited about the new binder lines from Wilson Jones. We have invested a lot in this product category over the last few years and this is a culmination of all our efforts," said Jed Peters, Vice President of U.S. Marketing, ACCO Brands. "Not only have we designed a superior product that will be of greater value to our consumers, we are able to greatly support our communities by manufacturing these binders right here in the United States." ACCO Brands employs 1,300 workers in U.S. Manufacturing and Distribution at its three bindery facilities.

The Wilson Jones binder line-up is led by the new Ultra Duty Binders, followed by the new Heavy Duty Binders. Both are made in the U.S. with eco-friendly materials and designed with durability in mind. Featuring our strongest covers and an extra durable hinge, these binders are made from custom formulated Polypro. Polypro lasts 10X longer than traditional vinyl, and is PVC Free.  

An Ultra Duty Binder comes with a 5-year performance guarantee and features single-touch D-Lock rings that hold 40% more paper, and are easier to open. A Heavy Duty Binder comes with a one-year performance guarantee and features never-gap round rings to keep papers secure. Available in classic and contemporary colors, Wilson Jones American-made binders help you express your individuality and are ideal for presentation, organization and storage needs.
