Mace Security International, Inc. Unveils New Environmentally-Conscious Mace® Brand Product Packaging at SHOT Show

 SHOT Show Location — Booth 20141

Cleveland — Mace Security International, Inc. (OTCPINK: MACE), a globally recognized leader in personal safety and security, introduces new packaging at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas. The company is drastically reducing the amount of PVC plastic used in current product packaging and eliminating the folded paper inserts to be environmentally responsible and elevate the overall look of Mace® Brand products.

“When we decided to update our packaging, it was the perfect opportunity for us to formulate an eye-catching design that would be sustainable and reduce our carbon footprint while optimizing shelf appeal,” said Jessica Adanich, creative manager of the company.   

Hitting select shelves on February 1, the new packaging will consist of molded-dome blister packs with reduced PVC usage and instructions for the product printed on the back. Throughout 2016, it will be continuously rolled out and all products are expected to be updated by 2017.

“With more than 20 years in attendance, we couldn’t imagine a more ideal place to launch the Mace® Brand packaging than at the premier event in the shooting sports industry,” said Eric Crawford, vice president of sales. “In addition to this new development, we are excited for the growth of our line of safety and security products and brand, which will continue to generate new business for Mace and our partners this year and beyond.”

Mace Security International, Inc. will also be showcasing Mace® Brand Nite Beams LED safety wear line, Mace Tactical Solutions less-lethal munitions and aerosol sprays and the iconic Mace® Brand defense sprays at its SHOT Show booth.

Safety Concerns Drive Increased Sales for Mace® Brand Products Around the World

-       International Sales Expected to be Up Approximately 77 Percent in Fourth Quarter 2015

-       Concerns Over Safety Generate Surging Demand for Company’s Defense Sprays

 

CLEVELAND – (January 5, 2016) – Mace Security International, Inc. (OTCPINK: MACE) today announced a significant increase in customer demand for its iconic Mace® Brand defense sprays internationally. The company believes this is due to growing concerns about future uncertainty and increases in violent crime.

“As well documented in various media reports, anxiety is extremely high with the general public in Europe,” said Philip Pinol, chief executive officer of Brite Strike Technologies, SA, a Mace distributor in Europe. “Given the increased demand we saw in Paris at the MILIPOL security show this fall and what we expect to see in Nuremberg at the upcoming IWA security show, it’s clear the alternative Mace Brand products offer has struck a chord with consumers who want to be able to help defend themselves and their loved ones.”

“At Mace, we take great pride in providing customers with reliable, easy-to-use, personal protection products,” said John McCann, president and chief executive officer of Mace Security International, Inc. “We do not take lightly the faith people place in our products to help keep them and their loved ones safe and at a safe distance.”

The company projects international sales of the Mace Brand defense sprays in the fourth quarter of 2015 will be up nearly 77 percent compared to similar sales a year ago. Mace Security International, Inc. expects to report its consolidated fourth-quarter 2015 results late in the first quarter of 2016.
