Silipint and Crown Products Team up to Launch New Items
Silipint Inc., located in Bend, Ore., announced that Crown Products, Mobile, Ala., has been chosen to exclusively represent the new items Silipint and Silishot to the promotional products market. Silipint Inc. and Crown Products will officially launch the new items at the ASI New York show on May 9 and 10.
"We were approached by Crown Products during the PPAI Vegas show in January and our relationship with them has grown ever since," said Rick Fredland, CEO and founder of Silipint. "We are very pleased with our choice to team up with Crown, a Supplier of the Year recipient and a company who carries an outstanding reputation in the industry."
Silipint is the only 100 percent food grade silicone pint glass in the industry. Silipint and Silishot are FDA approved, non-toxic and BPA-free. Both items insulate hot and cold, are reusable, dishwasher safe, microwave safe, oven safe, freezer safe and are unbreakable.
"Silipint's unique products complement our goal of bringing high-quality, design-focused items to our drinkware line," said Bob Bickert, managing director, business development at Crown Products. "We're excited to launch this new item in New York and introduce the promotional industry to a truly indestructible product."
The Silipint concept was developed in 2010 after Rick Fredland created a silicone dog bowl. While showing the bowl he wanted to offer beverages to his customers and thought of the idea to have a silicone cup to tie in with the silicone dog bowl. Silipint was created and officially introduced to the promotional industry in January 2012. Silipint was named the "Best New Product" of the 2012 PPAI show.
