The company is recognized for its redesigned Universal Car Remote packaging.
LOUISVILLE, KY, November 4, 2019— The new Universal Car Remote packaging was voted Best New Packaging at the 2019 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas. The AAPEX New Packaging Showcase features the latest and most innovative packaging designs and concepts in the automotive aftermarket. The award-winning packaging includes several features and systems to reduce shrink.
The world’s first and only Universal Car Remote won Best New Product at AAPEX in 2015. The unique device is like a universal TV remote, except it’s made for cars. The Universal Car Remote controls the remote keyless entry systems for thousands of automotive makes and models.
New Packaging Showcase Entries were judged by Tom Egan, Vice President, Industry Services, PMMI – the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies – and Sean Riley, Editor, Packaging Machinery Technology magazine.
Car Keys Express was the only company to win two awards at this year’s AAPEX trade show. The company also won Best New Product for their new Car Keys Express App, which allows users to easily photograph a keyblade and order a cut duplicate key. The retail-friendly version of the app, Retail Optical Key Scanner (ROKS), allows retailers to offer both automotive and residential key replacement with little-to-no investment in equipment, inventory, or training.
