From Idea to Solution
kp i.center: Partnering solution for development of new products
Every innovation starts with an idea. The key for new ideas is physical exchange of experts from various disciplines, thinking styles and roles. That´s why Klöckner Pentaplast created a destination for clients to ‘take residency’ and work side-by-side with kp experts on their specific packaging needs. The so called kp i.center facilitates rapid packaging design and gives customers a truly personalized experience.
The center was conceived to meet the needs of global pharmaceutical packaging professionals, including those in operations, marketing, and procurement, for both branded and generic products. Visitors include project managers, business unit managers and engineers. The open environment offers opportunity for ideas to freely grow. A place where focused capabilities rapidly produce prototypes, which reduces the cost and shortens the time to market for new products.
