TOGETHER WE GLOCALIZE YOUR PACKAGING

Nefab has operations in +30 countries. This enables us to help localize your newly designed and tested multi-material packaging solutions in most regions in the world. We put pride in being able to offer you project managers with a wide set of different language skills, multi-lingual packing instructions and quality instructions. Moreover, we provide localization support to you or your contract manufacturer, original design manufacturer or sub-suppliers by our local teams in the local language and in the right time zone. Our Global EDM system CAXA Vault is an outstanding online database tool securing global document control and revision history making sure all local teams have access to the latest revisions by pulling files off the global database instead of sending by email.

TOGETHER WE SERVICE YOUR PACKAGING

The variety of activities and the specific layout of the Engineering Center give us the possibility to service your packaging. We kit and prepare sophisticated packaging solutions that are shipped in a “ready to use” condition to our customers.
We also provide an on-site packing team to come and assist you in your special needs like packing heavy, large or valuable equipment.

We are capable to support our customers in the management of their packaging and we can independently service your packaging pool. This includes reverse logistics and sorting and repairing your packaging for re-use. We can also provide an RFID tracking of your pool packaging via our web based application.
A popular Nefab service is the on-site Flow Review. This is a systematic analysis approach of how your packaging affects your total cost. Our consultancy team takes a “snapshot” of your daily operations and suggests cost take-out initiatives which could reduce freight and other total logistical costs.
