Cincinnati Campus Part of Retail Integration Institute
NEENAH, Wis. (June 17, 2013) – Menasha Packaging announces the expansion of its Retail Integration Institute (RII) with the recent opening of a Retail Integration Campus in Cincinnati, Ohio. The promotional solutions leader has six additional campuses nationwide, which provide consumer packaged goods (CPGs) companies and retailers with a consultative, collaborative and progressive approach to innovation and strategy.
Menasha Packaging’s RII campuses vary in size, but all share a similar approach. Each location is set up to have an in-store feel with products and shelving units that are specific to the many different retail channels that Menasha Packaging services. A modern, open meeting space is also central to the campuses. The combination allows for collaboration and inspiration that is truly unique.
“It’s important that our customers see us as partners, and for us to be able to offer them added value to our relationship. In order to do that, we prefer to be seated at the table when strategic conversations are happening,” says Jeff Krepline, Menasha Packaging Vice President for National Sales and RII. “The Retail Integration Campuses address both by offering a venue that is conducive to strategic conversations and by providing our customers with a perspective that can only be gained with the scale and reach of Menasha Packaging.”
Menasha Packaging piloted this concept in 2004 with its first Retail Integration Campus at the company’s headquarters in Neenah, Wis. The concept proved successful for both customers and Menasha Packaging.
The complete list of campus locations includes: Cincinnati, Ohio; Bentonville, Ark.; Brooklyn Park, Minn.; Neenah, Wis.; Northbrook, Ill.; Philadelphia, Pa.; and Santa Fe Springs, Calif.
