WHAT WE DO
At IPL we specialize in the design, manufacture and distribution of premium and luxury packaging. Our product offering comprises both the outer packaging and also any value-added components included in the final product, as well as stand-alone point of sale material, or what we would call “brandware”.
We have proven expertise across a wide range of mediums and processes that allows us to turn incredible concepts into practical realities. Whilst Asian manufacturing has only become vogue in the past decade or so, we can demonstrate over 25 years of manufacturing experience in the region, with the bulk of our products still being produced in China and India.
HOW WE WORK
Our experienced team is skilled in the selection and management of our supply base. We conduct detailed audits assessing a wide range of criteria from production capabilities to material and social compliance before qualifying an ’IPL Factory’. Thereafter a factory will only be considered for a project once its passes our sampling evaluations.
Key to our success is the strong in-house quality control team that we employ. While it is obviously important that factories themselves demonstrate good quality control capabilities, having our own IPL teams in place to supervise production lines and verify output is vital to achieving the standards that we, and our luxury brand owning client, expect.
We are demanding and firm with our factories, but we also value their loyalty and commitment – building relationships based on mutual respect is essential to success within the markets in which we operate. We are proud of our strong and dedicated IPL factory network and we welcome any opportunity to showcase this to our clients on site.
Our extensive experience has allowed us to gain deep insights into both the categories in which we operate, and into the role of branding and brand messages. We fully understand the important contribution that our final product will make in enabling our clients to achieve their commercial objectives and are able to propose a variety of options to suit various budgets.
We keep a firm grasp on practical realities. This is what separates us from traditional design agencies. So, whilst creativity and imagination are paramount, commercial requirements and constraints are nonetheless accounted for when proposing designs or responding to design execution needs.
We have a dedicated Innovation & Design department which operates independently from our NPD department.
Innovation & design – our Innovation & Design team is continually looking for new ideas and concepts across diverse areas from material composition to product features and function. We also access resources from a tried and tested pool of specialists.
New product development – Our NPD teams, the engine of our business, work with both our clients and our Innovation & Design team to help turn incredible concepts into practical realities.
