The challenge for packagers is how to deliver this differentiation. “Creating something truly unique is a complex process, requiring a broad yet profound knowledge base. This must cover the market, trends, design, craftsmanship and industrialisation. Above all, it must include a deep understanding of the needs of the brand in order to provide the right level of service and support,” explains Isabelle de Maistre, head of Quadpack’s Fragrance Division.
“At Quadpack, we are in a position to offer a holistic service that pulls together our expertise in all aspects of beauty packaging. Our strategy combines our industry know-how with our design talent, to conceive great ideas. Our manufacturing expertise allows us to practically realise the dreams of our clients. Our dedicated fragrance team supports them from design to delivery. In this way, we are able to deliver true differentiation. We are what I like to call ’universal experts’,” she adds.
In the months ahead, de Maistre predicts more diversity in components, usage and materials. Her strategy sees Quadpack applying that universal expertise to a roadmap of innovative solutions to be released over the course of the year, as part of Quapack’s portfolio or as bespoke projects. Her message for the niche brands out there? “Be prepared for a few surprises!”
