Novio Packaging: New Name For Five Companies

Thursday, April 26th, 2018 | 1034 Views

Novio Packaging Group—the new holding for the group of companies specialising in packaging solutions and the distribution of primary packaging materials—is made up of Oosterbeek Packaging B.V., Alpha Packaging International B.V., Maer Flexibles B.V., Maer Hong Kong Limited, and FehnPolycap GmbH.

To offer their customers a broader range of services, backed by improved international effectiveness, the five companies will be joining forces from 11 April 2018 as Novio Packaging.

As explained by the directors Marck Jansen and Erik Trum: “Novio refers to ‘new’, as well as being the abbreviation for Noviomagus—the Latin name for Nijmegen—which itself means ‘new marketplace’. Nijmegen is the home city for the two of us, and is close to the location of our new head office.”

For the rest of 2018, the five companies will continue to operate under their original name with the subheading: ‘member of Novio Packaging Group’. From 1 January 2019 onwards, they will all operate simply as Novio packaging. On that day, Oosterbeek Packaging B.V., Alpha Packaging International B.V., and Maer Flexibles will complete a legal merger.

For existing and future customers, this new merger will have positive effects. In addition to maintaining the current levels of customer focus and product quality, the new structure means that the group members can support each other in terms of improved knowledge, production, distribution and service provision.

In Mr Trum’s words, “By establishing a single point of contact, it is immediately clear to our business relations who they are dealing with, and what solutions we can offer them.”

The two directors also plan to further expand the range of services and products internationally. Marck Jansen added: “With this greater volume, we acquire more buying power and that, too, is favourable for our customers.”

In advance of this merger process, the company moved to a new head office location in January. The office premises offer sufficient space for growth. In terms of design, the site is geared towards the values represented by Novio Packaging.
