Few end-users have the same requirements, especially in an omni-channel world. We can help our customers tailor their offer so that the recipient has the least possible effort to get the goods onto the market or onto the production line.
Our repackaging services are supported by experts in both structural and visual design, so we can retain packaging or improve packaging functionality while meeting user requirements whether it be for ‘shelf appeal’ or for ease of handling. We focus on reducing the time and money involved in developing display packages so that you can get from concept to a prime position on the retail floor faster, cheaper, and as part of a planned logistics process rather than a last-minute add-on.
Labelling is also vital, both at retail and for tracking, tracing and visibility through the supply chain. We can supply and develop cost-effective barcode and RFID solutions, tailored to customer requirements but fully integrated both with our own warehouse and other systems, and those of your customers. Our efficient processes guarantee quality through extensive code verification processes, while reducing your costs in label stock management, equipment and technical support.
Our kitting services allow bundling of components, tools and supplies into packages to support production or maintenance activities at the point of use. A production line position, or a maintenance operative, receives exactly the selection of goods required to perform the job, often using innovative solutions to ensure that the kit is obvious and practical in use. In turn this helps optimize inventory management, using different models for high usage, low-use but critical parts, and of course the many combinations where these have to come together. Reductions in purchase orders (one kit rather than 15 parts), lower stock levels and lower inventory costs should all result.
