Packaging giant scoops top supplier award

SMURFIT Kappa has been named European Supplier of the Year by 3M.

The packaging giant said the award recognises its “innovative design and order process” for 3M’s Point-of-Sale (POS) displays. Smurfit Kappa used its online tools and applications to develop a new catalogue for the company, described as featuring “in-built efficiencies” to cut the implementation time of new display initiatives from fifteen to eight weeks.

The modular design also optimised the displays for pallet transportation, delivering logistics savings.

Josua Stoll, category specialist at 3M European Packaging Sourcing Operations said, “Collaborating on the POS display centralisation project with Smurfit Kappa was a rewarding experience. This was a well-deserved award for Smurfit Kappa’s continued support and commitment to the solutions that it provides to 3M.”

Daragh Wall, Smurfit Kappa European display director added, “3M is a highly valued customer and we are delighted that our design innovation has made such an impact in the organisation. We are immensely proud of the dedicated research and innovation that underscores all our products and services and we are committed to sharing our global knowledge and collaboratively designing packaging solutions that exceed customer and consumer expectations.”
