German Packaging Award 2012: the Mercedes flacon by Gerresheimer is among the winners

Düsseldorf/Nuremberg, (PresseBox) - The Gerresheimer Group has won the German Packaging Award for its Mercedes Benz Perfume flacon design.

"We're delighted about the award. Sophisticated glass flacons are an important part of the perfume and fragrance world and Gerresheimer is a specialist in this field. The Mercedes flacon is an impressive example of our design capabilities and we're proud of it," said Nicola Balena, Sales Director Moulded Glass at Gerresheimer.

The flacon, which the manufacturer describes as "masculine, modern and elegant", is produced by Gerresheimer Momignies in the sizes 40, 75 and 120 ml. A Mercedes-Benz star is featured on the glass base. The flacons are made at Gerresheimer's Momignies plant on single-drop machines in a blow and blow process. After the production process they are fire polished to achieve a perfect surface finish. Finally, a bi-color screen print of the famous automobile brand name is applied. The logo which is additionally featured on the base further enhances the flacon's elegance and upmarket appeal.
