    PRIZE-WINNING PACKAGING - TORINO LA PIAZZA WINS SWISS PACKAGING AWARD


    The Swiss Packaging Award is Switzerland’s platform for creativity and innovation in the packaging industry.
    Outstanding achievements and packaging solutions are honoured by the Swiss Packaging Institute.
    Winners of the Swiss Packaging Award are eligible to enter for the WorldStar Packaging Awards, the international competition for the best packaging products in the world.

    The Torino – LA PIAZZA packaging, produced by SCHELLING AG, won the coveted Swiss Packaging Award in “Category F: Construction”. The cylindrical packaging is 100% Swiss-made and a masterpiece of efficiency and environmental sustainability. The flat-pack delivery of the various packaging components reduced logistics and storage costs by 90%. The circular automatic packaging machine joins the lid and side panels in the blink of an eye and every material used is fully recyclable. The icing on the cake is the lid with the pull tab and cut/reverse-cut system, which makes it easy to open the packaging and close it again.

    Jury’s comments:
    The packaging is delivered flat, keeping material costs to an absolute minimum. It is put together by a machine just before it is filled, cutting logistics and storage costs significantly. The design stands out, being 100% recyclable and fitting into a tiny space when it is folded up. All design criteria, from using less material and cutting costs through to streamlining are completely fulfilled – this is packaging design of the highest standard!

    SCHELLING GmbH TAKES OVER HANAU-BASED R&S DISPLAY GmbH & Co. KG


    SCHELLING GmbH, based in Hanau, Germany, is taking over R&S Display GmbH & Co. KG, based in the same city, with retroactive effect from 1 January 2018. This will allow SCHELLING AG to add another production facility to its presence on the German market and strengthen its range of display manufacturing products and services. The acquisition underlines SCHELLING AG’s strategic positioning on the constantly growing market for displays and point-of-sale material and leverages multiple synergy effects with its sales office, which has been successfully managing the German market for over 20 years from its base not far from R&S Display GmbH & Co. KG. R&S Display GmbH & Co. KG can now make use of SCHELLING AG’s and Birkhäuser + GBC AG’s extensive portfolio.

    R&S Display GmbH & Co. KG will continue to operate on the market under the same name. Mr Thomas Albrecht, currently Joint Managing Director, will remain at the company in a leading role. Mr Rüdiger Hohe, Managing Director of SCHELLING GmbH, will be taking over executive management.
