Kliklok LLC was established in 1947, after developing the first locking corner tab for folding cartons and a machine to automatically form the cartons. The locking tabs clicked when they snapped into place and were called “Klik-Loks”. The Dan Woodman Company, an engineering firm, was founded even earlier. In 1947, it developed the Air Weigh System in collaboration with Herman Lay (founder of Lay’s Potato Chips). It was the first machine to automatically weigh and bag potato chips.
Five manufacturers and suppliers were issued patents.
New products rolled out across the company’s portfolio.
