Design & Prototyping

Design your Success @Greiner Packaging

Good packaging protects the product inside. Great packaging provides the same protection – and does so much more besides. Great packaging solutions are sustainable. Unique designs help them to stand out, catching the shopper’s eye on the store shelf.
And they are top performers in terms of practicality.
The advantages are felt not only by consumers but also along the entire supply chain, from the filling line through transportation and warehousing to the point of sale. And the environment benefits as well.

If you want your own product to make the “great” category, you can count on Greiner Packaging’s design and prototyping department, DesPro, to develop the packaging to match. Our DesPro colleagues have more than just a keen eye for beauty. Working together with you, they will develop packaging solutions that address the latest market trends, follow design for recycling criteria, and are technically workable.
