iDC facility

Our Innovation and Design Centre (iDC) is where every project begins, from new product development to packaging reviews and value engineering. This custom-built design facility is just the latest in a long history of investments at Sheard to help our customers get the most value out of their packaging products.

The iDC has allowed us to increase our existing design capabilities through the addition of a Zünd digital cutting table and a full upgrade of our design software. Here, our team of designers and NPD team can produce creative, innovative, and imaginative packaging whilst still meeting efficiency and sustainability goals.

This is also where we carry out our customer training days and ‘It’s Only A Box’ courses, sharing our knowledge and expertise to provide increased value for every product. We also provide creative workshops for visiting groups and schools to give them an inside look at careers in manufacturing and teach them about sustainable materials.

The capabilities of our iDC can take your packaging to the next level. For more information about our design processes or any of our training courses, get in touch today.
