Nefab has developed into the segment's top packaging supplier of valuable and sensitive equipment and devices. Whether you are shipping sensitive electronics, radio remote units, antenna systems, routers, switches, wireless devices, servers, data storage systems, power systems, cabinets, chassis or cables - Nefab has the experience to provide the right solution for your product.
The rise of smartphones and tablets has put focus on the need for high speed data transfer in the mobile networks, and operators worldwide are investing in added network capacity in the form of more advanced antennas, cables, radio units and IT infrastructure. The purpose is to support subscribers with the same fast access to internet-based newspapers, games and social media over mobile devices as being connected to a fixed network. The need for professional packaging solutions increases at the same pace as the network equipment itself becomes more advanced and its capacity grows, but also becomes more sensitive to corrosion, shock, electrostatic discharge, vibration, etc. Added to this is the fact that most products are faced with international transport environments. Nefab's team of experienced and dedicated packaging engineers develop complete packaging solutions for all types of electronic equipment and specialize in flow analysis in order to identify your main cost drivers and how to reduce costs in your supply chain.
Nefab has undertaken a highly successful packaging review on behalf of a major subcontractor with a presence in Europe, Asia and the US. Initially, electronic panels were packed in traditional corrugated packaging that was placed on wooden pallets, stretch filmed and transported by air from Shanghai to Europe. The packaging had a low degree of filling and failed pallet stacking. This gave high, and therefore expensive, shipping weights and high impact on the environment. Moreover, it took a long time to unpack the panels when they arrived. Nefab's project group analyzed the flow and developed a lidded container that allowed ninety units per pallet, instead of sixty previously. The pallets could now be stacked three high, while also eliminating the need for stretch film and lengthy unwrapping.
“We also added a new lightweight pallet which helped lower the shipping weight considerably. The final outcome was an annual cost saving of 37%.”

These products are examples of packaging solutions designed and developed by Nefab.
OEM's within the Telecom and Infrastructure industry face a challenge in cost efficient packaging development since very little production is left near their HQs and R&D centers in US/Canada and Western Europe and since there is very little supply to be done in that proximity, it is difficult to find a packaging design partner.
Nefab is one of the few packaging companies who can offer packaging design, prototyping and test support in US/Canada and Western Europe and also offer factory direct prices in low cost regions like Guadalajara, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Penang and Eastern Europe where most manufacturing take place today.
Nefab's global platform enables global coordination with local service, tailored for the telecom and infrastructure industry.
