With Ergosol, brand owners can differentiate their products amongst more traditional push-button aerosol sprayers. During use consumers enjoy a comfortably ergonomic and easy to actuate spray experience, ultimately leading to increased brand loyalty. Ergosol provides the look and performance of a customized sprayer in an off-the-shelf solution, helping brand owners increase speed to market.

“Leveraging MWV’s expertise in dispensing solutions, we developed Ergosol to meet the market demand for a flexible, universally ergonomic design that is easy to use,” said Luis Mondragon, MWV’s global director of new business development for Home and Garden. “Understanding our customers’ needs and consumer insights allowed our team to innovate and develop this unique solution. Ergosol is the first off-the-shelf sprayer with aesthetics and performance that mimics a more customized solution. Ergosol looks and performs as though it was specially customized for each product.”

Ergosol is able to fit on virtually any can size and can be customized using MWV’s color matching capabilities. With Ergosol, MWV bridged unique aesthetics with functionality and an even spray pattern to create a universal design that could be used for a variety of products, including air care, hard surface cleaners, insecticides and auto care. Finally, Ergosol features a reduced number of parts compared to custom solutions currently available, thus allowing brands to quickly and easily convert from push-button aerosol sprayers to the Ergosol solution.
