Packaging company Klöckner Pentaplast has opened a kp i.centre in Spain where it will help its customers develop collaborative solutions for food consumer products (FCP).
Located in Sant Cugat, 30km away from Barcelona, the centre combines a dedicated area for marketing, sales and R&D experts with laboratory, prototyping facilities, a supermarket and an FCP market research centre.
The unit has integrated industrial and technical capabilities to deliver “a full experience” from concept to production of a packing solution.
“Close collaboration with our customers is the key to success”, explained Helene Roberts, director, FCP Marketing & Innovation.
“The idea is to demonstrate how packaging looks on a shelf or counter in store, emulating real consumer experiences for our customers,” Roberts added.
The laboratory on the site includes several instruments for analysing and creating different packaging solutions.
