3 REASONS FOR CHOOSING METAL PACKAGING

A top-quality product needs a top-quality package. Why? 

It’s no secret that product packaging plays a huge role at the point of sale.

Packaging is your customer’s first impression of your brand. It communicates the quality of your product and the values of your company, and Metal packaging is one of the best solutions you can find in the market.

Here are just three of the numerous reasons why metal packaging is better than other packages:

1. PREMIUM QUALITY PERCEPTION

Metal immediately gives the idea of upscale and sophisticated to your customers.  

In addition, a metal container can be shaped in order to non-verbally communicate desired brand imagery: easier to grip, open, dispense and longer shelf life.

2. NO DAMAGE DURING TRANSPORTS 

Flexible, strong and lightweight are the key attributes of SILFA Metal Packaging.
As an added bonus, there is a 90% reduction* in packaging damaged in transit.

3. METAL RECYCLES FOREVER

Last but not least: sustainability.

Sustainability has become a critical driver in customer buying decisions. 

Metal cans, pails and drums can be recycled forever. When metal products reach the end of their useful life, the materials are simply collected and recycled, again and again, with no loss of their inherent properties. Once metal enters the material-to-material loop, it will always be available for future generations.

60 YEARS OF SILFA

19th April 2017
Vincenzo Cereda and his business partner founded Silfa in 1957. At that time the employees were three: his wife Elia, Pinetta (Giusy for friends) and Maurilio, lifelong friend and cousin.
The idea comes from the founder’s love for his job as head of mechanical workshop, that used to bring home some work to do before and after his usual working day.
Two years later, as the business was doing well, they decided to buy a warehouse, called Lerón, in order to expand their production and acquire new customers.
Today the second-generation is continuing the business, while the third one is starting to enter.
Silfa is therefore the result of the intuitive choices of Vincenzo’s successors that were able to keep alive his values without losing sight of the future and market needs.
Over the years the company has evolved, introducing new production lines and quality products
On 19th April 2017 Silfa turned 60. All the employees have commemorated the event together.

METAL recycles forever

As consumers are becoming more and more concerned about the impact that packaging can have on the environment, Metal Packaging Europe is encouraging the licensed use of the Recycling Mark, trademarked and exclusive property of Metal Packaging Europe.
The idea behind the use of this logo is to take part to a worldwide behaviour change campaign aimed to help people to understand the key role they have to play in keeping metal in the material loop by recycling their empty packaging.

Silfa is proud to wear and embody this trademark as well as to share its powerful meaning.
