MeadWestvaco Launches New Packaging Security Device

MeadWestvaco Corp. has created Intercept, a packaging security tool that was designed to protect products against theft throughout the supply chain.

It consists of a wireless-enabled lock, which disables a product's functionality until deactivated using ProTeqt Technologies' security system during checkout. The device guards against multiple threats of theft, including shoplifting, organized retail crime and employee theft. At the same time, it allows consumers fully to interact with products in-store, and take their purchases straight to the checkout register. It is especially well-suited for high-tech products such as consumer electronics, office supplies, video games, pharmaceuticals, jewelry, fragrances and personal-care products, MeadWestvaco said. The global packaging company serves multiple industries, in addition to producing specialty chemicals for the automotive, energy and infrastructure industries. It also engages in extensive forestry operations, property development and land sales.
