Competitor Swim Introduces New Products to Market with Jamestown Container’s Corrugated Packaging Expertise

Competitor Swim is the largest manufacturer of swim racing lanes and other swim racing products for competitions around the world. Competitor lane lines have been used in countless NCAA Championships, as well as 9 of the past 12 Olympic Games, including the 2012 London Olympics.

Competitor Swim partnered with Jamestown Container Companies after its current vendor wasn’t able to provide optimized packaging solutions for its products. After learning about Jamestown’s expertise earned over 58 years in the market, Competitor Swim believed it had found a trusting partner.

Soon after their introduction, Competitor Swim was confident in its decision. The Jamestown sales and design team met with Competitor Swim on-site multiple times to work with its engineers to define the optimal custom packaging for its existing products, as well as new products in development that were much larger in size than its current products. The company knew it required a custom box and that developing the best design for shipping would be difficult. It consulted with the Jamestown sales and design team to determine the best and most cost-effective packaging. Jamestown ran with it from prototype to production. The expertise demonstrated by Jamestown contributed to Competitor Swim successfully launching the new product on its intended date.
