Innovation Lab

Our dedicated innovation and product development teams proactively monitor the marketplace and work with leading affiliates to uncover and respond to evolving requirements, trends and best practices with differentiating products and services, including smart packaging. We’ve been staying ahead of the curve for our customers for over a century.

Packaging is no longer static. It creates dynamic and meaningful connections that deliver insights.

As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow, smart packaging has evolved to become a two-way connected platform that builds real-time, digital bridges to share information, nurture relationships and deliver insights like never before. From embedded Near-Field Communication (NFC) tags to transmitting printed electronics, our range of packaging technologies connect to the Internet creating near-limitless possibilities.
