SCA Packaging Nicollet at LuxePack

SCA Packaging Nicollet is proud to be present at the Luxe Pack trade show in Monaco.

For the second consecutive year SCA Packaging Nicollet is proud to be present at the Luxe Pack trade show in Monaco, from 23 to 26 October 2007.

SCA Packaging Nicollet is one of the market leaders in France in the development and production of paperboard consumer packaging. An important part of its business is in the specialised area of luxury goods, working with major producers of champagne, cognac, perfumes and fine foods. Luxe Pack is an ideal forum for SCA Packaging Nicollet to display its sophisticated expertise and creativity in the world of luxury packaging and branding.

The luxury packaging business is highly demanding in terms of printing and production quality. The packaging must seduce the customer at the point-of-sale. It is a very important marketing tool that needs to attract the customer’s attention, communicate product benefits and induce the shopper to buy the product. Consumer packaging supports the brand even after the consumer brings the product home.

SCA Packaging Nicollet has its own unique in-house Design & Development centre focused on helping customers achieve their packaging goals. By listening carefully to customer needs, and applying extensive packaging production and printing experience, SCA Packaging Nicollet is able to transform its customers’ marketing and product concepts into unique, original and fashionable packaging solutions. Not only are aesthetic qualities considered, but also practical, technical, cost and environmental issues.

At Luxe Pack, SCA Packaging Nicollet will be eager to show its recent innovations in the luxury packaging segment, striking creations for well known brands of champagne, cognac, perfumes and fine foods. The company’s experts and engineers will be available to answer questions about design, innovation, technology and processes at the SCA Packaging Nicollet stand (RE2-RF1 in the Ravel Hall).

In addition to its presence at the trade show itself, SCA Packaging Nicollet is also sponsoring the ‘Prix Formes De Luxe 2007’, a contest rewarding the most innovating packaging designs in different categories. Within this contest the firm is also participating with an ‘étui’, developed and produced for cognac producer Remy Martin, combining a unique opening system and holographic printing: all new techniques that are today applied to a cognac, and tomorrow perhaps to the latest perfume brand...
