Commercialization & Package Optimization

Product commercialization is achieved through engineering support to ensure that launch requirements are satisfied. When deemed necessary, Continuous Improvement Planning (CIP) is conducted by analyzing the design post-launch to help identify any potential opportunities for design/part optimization. Insights gained from consumer experiences are then leveraged to help inform future needs and wants.

Consumer & Market Insight

To help us better understand evolving consumer needs/behaviors, we regularly conduct extensive research independent of any particular project. The insights we gain from collected data will often help us inform a project brief and/or timeline to ensure your expectations are met.

Creative Design & Package Development

Our team strives to deliver the ultimate in creativity. All of your marketing and brand objectives, as well as manufacturing and operational requirements are taken into consideration at the ideation stage. In addition, multiple concepts are generated and then refined by creating a series of detailed drawings and rapid prototypes.

Materials Expertise & Package Engineering

The package is refined into the most cost-efficient, manufacturable configuration, while maintaining the integrity of the approved design. Collaboration with development partners during the 3D/CAD development and mold engineering review process is maintained to ensure that all commercial and technical requirements have been met.

Mold Building & Technical Support

We’re continually looking for better, more cost-effective ways to execute your custom project. Whether we’re utilizing our own mold-building capabilities or collaborating with our custom mold development partners, we leverage any opportunities we find to create rapid prototypes and ensure that all commercial and technical requirements are satisfied.

Quality Assurance & Lab Support

Whenever possible, we confirm product quality through prototype tooling and by performing a mold qualification and process capability study. We also review decoration process requirements, as necessary, and initiate package performance testing to ensure proper form, fit and functionality. Our team also supports customer manufacturing line trials and research efforts.

Complex Project Management

We know that in your business, failure is not an option. That’s why we take an intensive, hands-on and collaborative approach in helping you manage your projects every step of the way. We closely monitor the entire process, from concept ideation to refinement to getting it produced, delivered, filled and distributed on time and on budget.

Management & Logistics Sourcing, Inventory

To help satisfy launch demands for all packaging components, we’ve streamlined the supply chain requirements and we carefully manage each step of the process. With warehouse locations nationwide, our Strategic Inventory Management System enables us to handle your logistical requirements reliably and cost-effectively, so you can concentrate on your commercial/promotional strategy.

Conversion

Simplifying the procurement process to give you the best quality, price and timing enables you to think outside of the box whether you are looking for a stock item with a twist or a fully custom design solution. We are focused on managing your packaging requirements all the way through to the point of conversion by reaching out to our global supplier network which includes partnerships with more than 700 package component manufacturers.
