Smurfit Kappa won a Swiss Packaging Award for its innovative ‘Universal Box’ packaging for industrial pumps.
The Universal Box protects pumps with a variety of functions connected with drinking water, heating, ventilation and sewage removal.
This clever packaging, which is the brainchild of Smurfit Kappa designer Heinz Störi, was made for BIRAL AG, part of the Grundfos Group which is a world leader in pump manufacturing.
Thomas Berndt, Managing Director of Smurfit Kappa Switzerland, commented:
“I am very proud of this ingenious solution, which is not only appreciated by our customer, but impressed the jury that reviewed all the entrants. It is another example of how we can create exceptional solutions by gathering insights and working closely with our customers.”
The award ceremony, which was organised by the Swiss Packaging Institute, took place at the “Packaging Innovations” exhibition in Zurich at the end of April 2017.
Earlier Smurfit Kappa Roermond Papier planned to modify paper machine 1 at its mill in the Netherlands.
