Our team of engineers and packaging scientists are passionate about finding the next big idea and collaborating with our customers to create innovative packaging solutions.
Safety. Sustainability. Customer Focus. Innovation. Quality. Value Creation. These are the strands in our DNA that set us apart. When you take a closer look, you’ll discover that they are evident in everything we do.
Even innovation needs consistency. By applying this reliable 5-step process to guide ideation, product development and design, we free ourselves to create within a set of parameters we decide on together.
Our 5-Step Innovation Process includes the following:
|Research – Review all existing options – including competitive packaging; establish design, supply chain and end-use requirements or constraints. Develop success criteria.|
|Ideation – Generate and develop design concepts. Check initial filter of concepts vs. success criteria. Present for initial evaluation and discussion.|
|Evaluation & Alignment – Iterative design development of selected concepts including prototype production and testing feedback to refine designs. Gain alignment on concept selection.|
|Validation – Conduct lab testing to simulate difficult supply chain scenarios and confirm design features. Then, scale up and perform production trials, customer trials and supply chain trials.|
|Implementation – Set functional specifications. Begin production. Gather ongoing feedback from supply chain to refine specifications.|
