Innovation & New Product Development

Our approach to NPD to solve your packaging challenges is to collaborate with your internal teams from initial project scoping, through creative design and technical consultation on reusable or recyclable materials.

 

Whether you’re looking to increase your market share, bring a new product to market, reposition your brand, grow sales, or solve lean manufacturing and production challenges we’ll work hand-in-hand with you to achieve your best solution.

 

Sustainability is at the heart of the Charpak business. Charpak has been at the forefront of designing sustainable packaging for years, with our latest patented innovation Twist-Loc, designed as a replacement for less sustainable packaging.  You can find more information on Sustainability and Twist-Loc here.

The Charpak WOW

THE entire process is all in-house

 

A comprehensive design briefing is developed with you at your initial scoping meeting. Charpak’s consultative approach targets right first time, every time.

 

  • All technical, manufacturing and engineering specifications are gathered in addition to environmental considerations, sustainability goals, sealing and any primary or secondary packaging requirements.

 

  • Our team can provide expert advice on optimum material specifications and thickness, ensuring you receive perfect packaging, to deliver your fit for purpose thermoformed packaging.

 

We recommend involving Charpak early in your NPD cycle, to guarantee you benefit from the highest quality expertise.
