Our services for your success
We are specialized in the development, marketing and distribution of brands and products for near- and non-food assortments.
Just like our customers, we attach great importance to quality – from customer advice and products to delivery reliability and after-sales. We have a modern logistics solution and are organizationally lean and nimble. Tailored to your needs, we offer services along the entire value chain. There is no business model that we do not already know – from pure logistics services to “full service”.
The high standard of quality that we have expected of ourselves since 1999 is the basis for long-term, sustainable success. We have an excellent network of contract manufacturers, researchers and developers in Switzerland as well as abroad.
Our products are manufactured according to ISO 9001 and 14001, IFS HPC, Ecocert, EU Ecolabel and AHA standards and most of them are produced in a CO2-neutral manner.
Current consumer and market trends are incorporated into the development of each new product innovation. We know how to develop and produce formulations, packaging and labels in accordance with differentiated target group requirements.
The professional maintenance of our long-standing customer relationships has the utmost priority for us.
Irrespective of whether it involves a large retail organisation like coop or Migros or an owner-managed pharmacy or stationery store, we do our utmost to meet individual requirements and wishes.
Depending on the requirement of the Key Account, we develop channel-specific and modern marketing concepts to optimise and increase turnover; these include, among others, sales screens, displays at second points of sale and merchandising.
Our customers greatly appreciate the prompt, individual and flexible support from the experienced sales staff.
The market in Switzerland is characterised by small shop formats – in contrast to many other countries with a high percentage of hypermarkets.
We know in what formats your brand can best develop. Street surveys, online research and marketing, banners, adwords, couponing, product placement and product PR, sampling in the mass market or tailored to target groups, trade magazines, classic above-the-line advertising, special interest magazines, etc. – we know the instruments that are required for successful marketing in Switzerland and offer customised solutions that match the budget.
There is a lot that has to be known about category management in Switzerland; here is a very fundamental point: All dealers wherever possible try to differentiate the products that they offer, with the goal of serving their customers better than their competitors.
We know the strategies, requirements and visions as well as the success stories and failures of the industry.
In each case, an in-depth analysis of the target market, the competitors and of the channel-specific category management requirements serve as a basis for the successful market introduction of a new brand.
Benefit from our experiences and the broad network at the purchasing and category management level in order to maximise your chances of success in Switzerland.
Our logistics platform is located in the centre of the transport infrastructure in Switzerland. A maximum of flexibility is offered on around 50,000 m2 of storage space with more than 30,000 pallet spaces.
Every day, more than 1’300 orders are processed in the logistics headquarters. If a customer order is received before 3 pm, the goods are guaranteed to be delivered within 24 hours on the following day.
In addition to classical logistics services, we also offer individual co-packing and packaging services such as display production, labelling or shrink wrapping.
The electronic connection (EDI) to the merchandise warehouse of retailers such as Migros makes it possible to actively manage the customer warehouses (VMI).
The average Swiss is 39,6 years old, 1,76 metres tall and weighs 77,3 kilos. His wife is two and a half years younger, 1,64 metres tall and weighs 63,2 kilos. They have been married for eight years although the divorce rate is 49%. They live in a rented four-room apartment and their visitors have to remove their shoes. Yes, indeed, that is the average!
But the maximum potential of your products will not be exploited with just the average – it is also about knowing and addressing the customers in the niche segment. Market analyses and target group-specific communication belong, among others, to our core competence. We understand consumers and know the competitors that woo them and can support you with our specialist knowledge.
