The first markets have been restocked!

HINNO is the first company in the industry to focus on sustainability in specialist market self-service. There’s now a completely new packaging concept!

QR-Code as a key

There was a major challenge associated with the switch from plastic to paper: The products themselves were no longer visible! To solve this issue, in addition to the key information on the packaging, a QR code links to the product description and advice. 

The code leads to an online page providing all the information on each respective product – in text, photos, graphics and video images, as well as accessing useful service tools and supplementary product recommendations.

    Key facts:

    • Fully-recyclable paper packaging (95/5)
    • Save 10 million plastic bags per year within the company (overall potential)
    • Detailed printing on package and final sizing done by HINNO using green electricity. Reduction in transportation
    • Product info in texts, static images and videos via a QR code

    10 million fewer plastic bags per year

    This changeover is planned for all of our consumer markets, helping the company reduce its annual plastic use by a total of up to 10 million plastic bags per year! That’s in addition to production and assembly lines that use 100% green electricity, fully recyclable curtain gliders and hooks – and lots more. So HINNO has defined another benchmark on the way to guaranteeing the most environmentally friendly working practices possible.

    A big thank you also goes out to our business partners for their willingness to take this completely new but important step on behalf of the industry.

    This hole punch has the knack!

    There are special reasons for punching notches quickly and accurately with CLIC RELEASE notching pliers to enable trip limiters to be fitted, even in already-mounted curtain tracks.
