Case study

Increased sustainability and improved storage

Challenge:

Our customer, one of the biggest producers of steering and driving technologies for the automotive industry, asked us to provide a sustainable alternative to its plastic containers and polyethylene dividers.

Results :

Our designers created a 100% recyclable corrugated box and dividers that are robust enough to be stacked without suffering any shock. The incorporated corrugated pallet has the added advantage of being a single unit for easier handling and storage.
