Creative Label Holders from The Kennedy Group Improve Efficiency and Appearance of In-Flight Service Carts

Cleveland, Ohio (September 17, 2012) – The Kennedy Group, a leading provider of packaging, labeling, and identification solutions, is now supplying the airline industry with the company’s Original Placard Label Holder.  Used on in-flight catering service carts, the placard provides commercial airlines and food service providers with an efficient, versatile, and cost-savings way to label and track service carts.

Over 2000 customers worldwide in the automotive, chemical, medical, and pharmaceutical industries, to name a few, use The Kennedy Group’s Placard Label Holder. The same benefits enjoyed by these industries will now be realized by the airline industry.

A leading European airline recently selected the new Placard Label Holder and labels for its in-service trolleys. The Placard Label Holder is easy to apply, adheres permanently to service carts, and allows for the easy removal and replacement of labels. This keeps carts clean and professional looking at all times.

“Our Placard Label Holder provides multiple functions and benefits in airline applications with service carts,” explained James Ward, director of marketing for The Kennedy Group. “Appearance, functionality, time savings, and label customization are a few of the benefits.”

 Placard Label Holders from The Kennedy Group:              

Improve Appearance – Labels are placed on placard holders and can be easily removed and replaced, eliminating label build-up and adhesive residue.

Are Sanitary and Water Resistant – Placards are designed to prevent food residue build up, meeting food compliance regulations, and will not fall off carts during the washing process. Typically, placards are positioned in the recess of the cart door, mitigating contact with washing nozzles.

Save Time – Labels need to be removed and replaced after every flight, usually several times per day. Labels applied to permanent placards are easily replaced, eliminating time needed to scrape off old labels.

Can be Customized – Placards can be printed with Airline logos to identify carts when labels are not in place.

The durable Placard Label Holder from The Kennedy Group does not break or bend, tear or peel, and is guaranteed for long service life. The placards and labels meet all applicable food service and airline standards.
