Packaging Innovation and Development

Whether you are looking for a strategic input and fresh approach to your existing ways or
perhaps you do not have the internal skills or resource to manage and drive packaging
developments we are able to help you.

We provide a complete serve from idea generation, through development of packaging


optionsand technical complexities, specification, sourcing and commercial aspects,
samples and management of trials and technical and consumer testing and project
management through to on-shelf launch.

We are able to either provide a full service or to tailor elements from the menu to deliver a
service that dovetails with your own abilities.

You will benefit from innovative packaging developments, to promote your products
and brands.

Packaging Solutions

Rapid development techniques allow the design and development of 3-dimensional


packaging and assemblies using digital CAD data. Once designs are approved on-screen,
a prototype model can be made within hours. The prototypes are working models - used
to check fit, function, compatibility with production and filling lines and market research.
The design can quickly be perfected at low cost.

Very early in the process you have a fully agreed design – no more judging designs from a
paper technical drawing, only to wait weeks and spend £thousands on tooling and to then
find the design is not ideal and face re-work or live with second best. Very quickly you
are able to proceed with confidence into rapid scale-up or production tooling to cut time-
to-market, costs and increase the certainty of NPD success. In addition we can open up an
arena of custom designs for lower volumes. We can manage this process and provide
samples for you.

We can also advise on additional techniques to speed graphic design management as well
as project management to ensure swift processing with the correct levels of control.

Packaging Process/Cost Reduction

Establishing and Optimising Processes and teams

We can benchmark, review and set up or enhance existing processes – such as the New
Product Development process – to bring this to world class standard ensuring it is
effective and streamlined but with the right controls at the right places and the right
people involved at the key points. Through reviewing the steps you take we can also
often enable you to cut time to market, especially if the above rapid development
technologies are also involved.

In parallel, if you are setting up or reviewing a new packaging development or buying


team we can review how you mange and control all aspects of packaging and help to
understand the skills and competencies required and whether these are best located
internally or sourced externally. We help companies in suggesting optimal structures for
teams and functions – number of roles, skills, roles and responsibilities, location of the
team within the organisation, reporting structures, etc.

Identification and Delivery of effective cost reduction and sourcing strategies

We are able to help you in identifying and delivering effective packaging related cost
savings, taking a total picture approach. We can optimize specifications to ensure you are
using appropriate specification for the job and where appropriate we can rationalise
duplication and complexity of specifications and formats to ensure you simplify your
operations and drive economies of scale.

We can manage the sourcing and tender processes for you to deliver cost savings and our
knowledge of the supply base and supplier approvals will ensure optimized sourcing
strategies for your organization.

Speed-to-Market

How can a Formula 1 team develop and launch a car – far more complex than most
packaging – in a season? Through analysis of the F1, automotive and aerospace industries
we have identified the enabling technologies and processes that allow rapid development.
By applying the relevant techniques to packaging developments packaging projects can
develop faster with lower cost and less re-work, delay and risk.

system to design and control your packaging specifications, technical drawings, bills of
materials, pallet plans and link with SAP system, we can provide the ideal solution
