VELCROA® Brand PRESS-LOKA® Solution To Enhance ScottsA® EZ SeedA® Bag Closures

MANCHESTER, N.H., Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Velcro Industries, with its commitment to creating smart products, services and technologies wherever things can be connected, announced its partnership with The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (NYSE: SMG), to enhance packaging for Scotts® EZ Seed® grass seed. The world's leading marketer of branded consumer lawn and garden products selected VELCRO® Brand PRESS-LOK® closure technology to provide consumers with greater ease of access and superior closure assurance for spill protection.

Scotts and Velcro Industries worked with manufacturer Peel Plastics Products Ltd., a recognized leader in product and process innovation, to integrate Velcro Industries' innovative PRESS-LOK ® closure technology into Scotts' grass seed package.  Available in the 10 pound and 14.5 pound sizes, the new packaging offers gardeners more reliable closure assurance, helping to extend the shelf-life of the grass seed, season after season. The PRESS-LOK® closure addresses any chance of package misalignment by containing a series of interlocking micro features that connect at multiple levels, even after repeated use.

"Consumers increasingly focus on product design and packaging attributes as they make purchasing decisions. PRESS-LOK® closure provides a superior consumer experience and enhanced packaging design," said Jurjen Jacobs, Vice President of Global Marketing, Velcro Industries. "We've seen great success with brands incorporating our closure into their package design and we're pleased to expand into the outdoor and gardening market through this exciting partnership with Scotts."

"Scotts' focus is on providing the best lawn care products on the market to help homeowners, gardeners and outdoor enthusiasts easily create beautiful, healthy and hearty outdoor spaces," said Jason Olson, Brand Manager, Scotts Miracle-Gro. "Our new packaging for EZ Seed® makes packaging lawn care even more efficient and enjoyable for our consumers, who will now have increased assurance that the product is securely closed in storage."

The VELCRO® Brand PRESS-LOK ® closure system is a proprietary hook-to-hook technology. The closure is a unique solution in the industry because it offers easy alignment that allows consumers to fasten without precise line-up, securing the package with great burst strength.
