In the world of consumer packaging, ‘look and feel’ can be just as important as ‘strength and purity’. Billerud FibreForm® replaces plastics with exciting designs that enhance brand and product image, while the manufacturing of carrier bags and the packaging of foodstuffs require that special combination of high-performance material, knowledge and solutions that only Billerud can provide.
Helping you make the right choice
We help packaging manufacturers and brand owners provide solutions based around the following four services:
1. Packaging performance testing
Real performance for demanding supply chains
Performed in a lab environment and using unique equipment, we can analyse all kinds of demanding scenarios placed upon consumer packaging throughout the supply chain. All this before it even reaches the store shelf. Using standardised measurement methods we can measure performance to identify weaknesses and suggest improvements.
2. Packaging production support
Introduction or start up at a converter or packaging producer
Here BillerudKorsnäs provides support services including technical guidance on converting methods & machine adjustments via telephone or on-site. Customers also gain access to a wide converter and packaging producer contact network for further support.
