United Brands Group is active in two different industries. The retail side is focused on national and international dealers who resell our five different brands. Within the promotional industry, we work closely with brand agencies and also directly with brands to produce the most unique and unforgettable merchandise with oil barrels in the lead. In the past few years, we have had the honor of fulfilling the most spectacular projects. Here are some of them:
Stichting Nederland Schoon
Stiching Nederland Schoon is a Dutch foundation that helps to reduce litter within councils in The Netherlands by using eye-catching trash cans in public places, near supermarkets, on train and bus stations, etc. Although they are already using a 200 liter bin, they asked us to think of a smaller version. Research shows that using the colour green people tend to throw more waste in the bin than by using another colour. The result: a green 60 liter waste bin made of steel, which is a must-have in every environment. The green colour and the distinctive message on the barrel ‘This is how we keep it clean’ encourages clean behaviour! Mission accomplished.
Sikkens always guarantees the highest quality. The assignment we received was to design and produce a multi-usable Point of Sale item that looks similar to the new paint cans and immediately attracts attention from customers. The result; a full colour wrap POS barrel, without beads and rubs, that can be used as a POS item and can also serve as a standing table. This allows the retailer to choose the functionality of the item.
This is the success story of one of our agents. He decided to approach Shell Spain with the question if they would be interested in partnering up to create some amazing merchandise with our barrels. You might (not) know that Shell consists of multiple other brands, including John Deere. After a few sales and design talks the agreement was set. We had the chance to produce custom BBQs for the brand John Deere. And if we may say so ourselves, they look amazing.
