St. Louis MO – As a leading designer and provider of packaging to the global marketplace, TricorBraun supplies packaging to brand owners from 40 sites in North America, as well from strategic locations around the world. But to provide service and value to its specialized customers, ranging from small businesses to hobbyists and crafters, it established Packaging Options Direct.
Packaging Options Direct is a division of TricorBraun, an online packaging store designed to supply these special customers with all the bottles, jars, cans, containers, tins, scoops, pumps and closures that are needed to create ideas and grow the dreams of these entrepreneurs.
“This new web site that is extremely easy to use is intended to serve those smaller customers who struggle to get attention, service, delivery and reasonable pricing from big suppliers,” says Keith Strope, TricorBraun’s chief executive officer. “By creating this online shopping option, we are able to offer them service and products equal in many ways to what we offer our large global customers.”
TricorBraun designed the web site for this online store to make it informative and convenient to use, enabling customers to quickly find the packaging that meets their specific needs, and to make ordering it simple. The new site, at http://packagingoptionsdirect.com, has already received positive reviews from customers who have used it, many praising the fast delivery and service.
The web site lists six major categories of packaging (glass bottles & jars, plastic bottles & jars, caps & closures, sprayers & pumps, cans & tins and wine packaging). Clicking on any category opens a list of specific packaging in that category, enabling users to choose exactly the type packaging they need. Clicking on one of these sub-categories (such as beer bottles) reveals photos of the various bottle types available. Clicking on one of these photos reveals specific details about the dimensions, weight, etc., of the bottle, as well as specific pricing for various quantities. A special section lists occasional sale items.
Once customers have chosen their packaging, they send it to their shopping cart, as they would on any typical online shopping site. After choosing among shipping options, they choose payment method and check out.
TricorBraun (www.tricorbraun.com) helps bring customers’ new and existing products to market efficiently as one of the packaging industry’s largest suppliers of glass and plastic containers, closures, dispensers and tubes from over 40 locations throughout North America and internationally from London, England: Guangzhou, China; Hong Kong, and Mumbai, India. The award-winning Design & Engineering Center gives our customers forward-thinking service based on consumer insight, understanding of the markets and creative solutions.
