Scanlux Packaging Enters New Markets

25th September 2018|Press releases|

Scanlux Packaging expands into the United Kingdom, Germany, The Netherlands, and Finland.

Over the last 30 years the Danish retail packaging company, Scanlux Packaging, has catered to the leading players in the Scandinavian retail industry.

Selling more than 300 million shopping bags per year, Scanlux Packaging has become one of the largest retail packaging companies in Northern Europe. The success is rooted in an ability to combine product knowledge, strong designs, and retail insights with reliable logistical solutions and a sustainable approach. Scanlux Packaging now plans to use their winning formula to open the global markets.

As a start, Scanlux Packaging will develop the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Finland.

“We have been considering business expansion into new markets for a while. Our strong point is that we can offer great package design and branding consultation with a focus on sustainability. Beautiful gifting or shopping bags with your own brand logos will always improve your customers’ shopping experience. This is because good retail packaging can add more “brand value” to the products you are selling. However, recently, consumers have been demanding environmentally sensitive packaging. As such we believe sustainability will increasingly become a key element of any marketing strategy for brand-owners and retailers across the globe, “said Jan Kornelius, CEO of Scanlux Packaging.

“As a leading retail packaging company from Scandinavia, we feel we have an important role to play in combatting global warming and pollution, as well as in improving working conditions for labourers. When our customers buy our FSC® certified products, we can guarantee that there was no illegal deforestation, slavery, child labour nor soil or water contamination throughout the whole production process.”

In 2016, Scanlux Packaging earned FSC® and ISO 14001 certifications and offers a wide range of eco-friendly wrapping papers or recycled plastic bags.
