LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo., Aug. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Expertise in total packaging solutions including strategic structural brand development through production mold engineering and manufacturing puts R&D/Leverage on the leading edge as a full service provider for consumer products OEMs. To enhance the Company's services in upfront research, design and brand development for Fortune 100 and 500 customers, R&D/Leverage announces the renovation and upgrading of its new Design Innovation Studio.
R&D/Leverage's multiple facilities are located on a campus designed to provide access to the many value-added services the company offers. The newly updated Design Innovation Studio provides a relaxed, informal and open "creative space" that infuses the energy required for collaborative brain-storming discussions as well as formal conference space and dedicated offices for the privacy of our customers.
"Getting a group together in a relaxed space is conducive to a more open, free-thought process as opposed to sitting around a conference table," explains Matthew Hutcherson, a Designer at R&D/Leverage.
Shaun Markey, Brand Strategist for R&D/Leverage, explains that the challenge that many brand owners often have is finding a partner that can deliver a full package of services that includes creative product design and strategic brand integration at the front end of a program along with innovative engineering and mold manufacturing at the back end. "That is R&D/Leverage's unique value proposition," Markey states. "Part of the catalyst for the new Studio is our commitment to our customers to develop and deliver a collaborative and creative experience."
