Recently, our team was employed by a New Jersey company to prepare custom crates for solar powered prototype panels for energy-related trade shows. The product would be displayed at multiple venues and it was a unique opportunity to demonstrate our proficiency and inventiveness in reusable crates for trade show shipping.


In order to effectively prepare the panels, MSS technicians would need to fabricate an intuitively-designed trade show crating and packaging system that accommodated solar panels destined for trade shows at multiple venues around the United States.


Like many companies who exhibit and promote products locally and internationally, attending multiple venues required our client to have trade show crates engineered in a way that enabled them to effortlessly unpack and repack the panels without the risk of damage. Therefore, MSS manufactured two separate crates for one assembly. Each piece to be crated was painstakingly measured for precise fitting.

MSS technicians carefully evaluated the solar panels and their different components to formulate a container that was entirely custom-fitted for the pieces. Intuitive packaging methods were critical, so that the client could easily look at a crate and know how to efficiently unpack and repack it at the different venues. Stenciling was included on the packaging to show exactly how the crate should be opened. Instructions were also included to clarify the process. Steel “butterfly” latches enabled the client to open the crate without the use of tools. Each panel was custom fitted in foam-lined slots. Lastly, the crate designed to be picked up from any side by pallets or forklifts for easy shipping. 

MSS invented a trade show packaging solution that ensured the solar panel assembly could be easily unpacked and packed while also safeguarding their integrity during the shipping process.
