Packaging Delight - Santa Claus Analysis

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Dec 15, 2014 9:00:00 AM

Santa ClausMy yearly tradition includes reading a physics approach to examining whether Santa Clause could exist and could actually deliver presents to children. This article was published in 1990 by Spy magazine. Since then, it has become the foundation for many chat room arguments about the possibility of Santa, and has been, as I understand it, cross checked and rebutted against by many. Its numerical approach to the circumstances necessary for Santa to do his work is delightful, as is its comically abrupt ending. The physics and analysis are all in good fun and they force adults to think about things differently and put themselves, albeit briefly, back into the shoes of children, to possibly think of magic as an explanation to what they are considering.  I know it works on me.

The business of the holiday season relies on such delight, but, “the business of business is business.” In my estimation applying this quote here means that one need not rely on magic or Santa in doing business. Instead, relying on sound and repeatable business practices is the only requirement. The goal of our customers is to deliver their goods to their customers; appropriately enough this goal is aligned with many individuals’ goals at Christmas time. At Liberty Packaging we rely on the Intercept Technology to preserve our customers’ goods while in storage and transit. We have years of experience and myriad case studies and tests which prove the functionality of the material.

Unlike the analysis of Santa, we are not asking you to take a leap of faith. We understand that seeing is believing and are more than willing to forward any test data or set up a trial to prove to you that Intercept Technology can and will provide reliable and repeatable protection for shipping and storing your products.  Our “magic” also extends to the Intercept Technology always providing long term, effective corrosion and permanent ESD protection without any volatiles, oils or chemicals.
