Self-descriptive packaging concept eliminates sales displays
In the concept phase of packaging, manufacturers often rely on tried and tested solutions that often block an eye for modern and sales-promoting possibilities. Through the cooperation with W.AG, the product became a self-explanatory service ambassador, without any additional effort.
Customer-specific consulting already in the product development phase
A Swiss manufacturer of products for the surface treatment of stainless steel relied on its usual concept of a case with a screen-printed logo and separate paper operating instructions. In order to gain the necessary attention at the point of sale (POS), separate displays were provided to promote the product.
Searching for an attractive case the case manufacturer W.AG was contacted and invited to Switzerland. After a detailed meeting all important points were discussed. During the meeting the Keay Account Manager of W.AG suggested a new way for the packaging concept.
The alternative for the conventional screen printing a double-sided in-mould labelling (IML) was suggested. The front IML would do the job of the display and the back IML would do the job of the manual. The plastic case would become the promoter and service-ambassador. The case colour was matched to the corporate design of the Swiss manufacturer and an individual foam inlay according the products was designed.
Today the product is delivered without the additional effort (using a manual or a display). The plastic case promotes and explains the stored products at the point of sale.
The basis for the large inhouse-competence of W.AG Funktion + Design GmbH are:
- Extensive sales structure and customer-specific consultation directly on-site
- Own case development
- Own tool-making
- Own injection moulding production with modern IML-decoration method
- Own print department (screen printing, pad printing and soon digital direct printing)
- Own inlay-development department
- Own foam processing (water-jet cutting, punching, milling, laser engraving)
W.AG's advice on new packaging concepts for plastic case solutions already takes effect during the product development phase, the start of the concept phase or the project kick-off.
The sales team at W.AG Funktion + Design is able to provide customers with competent and comprehensive advice based on its wealth of experience in a wide range of industries and W.AG's broad range of in-house expertise - especially when it comes to new approaches.
