Thinfilm, Beneli AB Partner to Offer NFC Label Conversion Services in Europe
Thin Film Electronics ASA ("Thinfilm"), a provider of Near Field Communication (NFC)-based smart-packaging solutions using printed electronics, has announced a partnership with Sweden-based Beneli AB, a provider of self-adhesive labels and related solutions. The partnership strengthens Thinfilm's converter program, the company reports, by providing strategic coverage in Scandinavia and the broader European region. In addition, the relationship extends Beneli's wireless product offering beyond RFID asset tracking, to now include NFC solutions for consumer engagement and authentication applications.
Thinfilm and Beneli will collaborate to provide Thinfilm's NFC solutions—featuring both SpeedTap and OpenSense tags supported by a cloud-based software platform—to existing Beneli clients and other consumer brands across a range of markets. Beneli maintains a presence in the spirits, medical, cosmetics and tobacco industries, and also serves the food, pharmaceuticals and logistics sectors. Initial market trials are expected to begin during the second quarter of this year.
"I'm very excited about our partnership with Thinfilm and the ability it gives us to deliver more value to our customers," said Jimmy Sterner, Beneli's CEO, in a prepared statement. "With Thinfilm's NFC technology, we can now offer a powerful solutions platform that significantly enhances the ability of brand owners to connect and communicate with consumers."
"Our partnership with a European leader such as Beneli fills a key geographic need for us and, as a result, significantly extends our conversion services in Scandinavia and throughout Europe," said Davor Sutija, Thinfilm's CEO, in the prepared statement. "The enhanced capabilities Thinfilm gains through this partnership will be critical as we look to meet the growing demands of leading consumer brands, mobile marketers and digital agencies."
