DS Smith expertise helps satisfy Legrand's Asian expectations

DS Smith has a well-established relationship with Legrand, an international leader in electric equipment and components, but that relationship is now taking on a whole new dimension.


Legrand's marketing and R&D teams had strong expectations for re-shaping the packaging of their premium ranges to support their sales growth in Asia. To place emphasis on Legrand's new premium identity, they were looking for a proactive consultant able to conduct reliable material-performance analysis and propose innovative and efficient packaging solutions. DS Smith was chosen as their trusted consulting partner thanks to its packaging expertise in the key areas of quality, innovation & sustainability as well as  DS Smith's value proposition based on  increasing sales, lowering costs and managing risks.


This consulting project consisted of an interactive brainstorming session and creating guidelines for design technological guidance to make Legrand's decision-making easier. Five studies were conducted on retail and shelf ready packaging, display, boxes and more. Innovative and specialized designs were created, mixing corrugated printed boards and plastic APET materials to package their "2.0" connected items such as a USB port, a power bar and more premium packages and displays offering protection, high transparency and distinctive designs to enhance their visibility.


  • More sales with a premium identity in an important market
  • Consistent look and feel across the product range
  • Robust protection for electrical equipment
  • Compliance with all packaging regulations
