New / additional EAN-barcodes
in the past, our customers increasingly asked us to provide different packaging units with independent EAN barcodes. This is necessary if the goods are to be received in modern, automated warehouses by scanning the barcodes.
So far, it was the case that a single piece or pair, possibly the sub-packaging unit and the main packaging unit, were each labeled with the same EAN barcode. From now on, the individual piece or pair, the sub-unit and the main unit will each have their own EAN barcodes. The individual piece or pair will keep the previously valid EAN barcode and the sub- and main-unit will each receive a new EAN barcode.
We initiated the changeover some time ago on the purchasing side. Due to the existing stocks, the point in time at which goods are delivered to you with new barcodes may well differ.
Upon request, you will of course receive a list from us with all valid EAN barcodes, so that you can adapt / expand your master data accordingly.
Please feel free to contact your responsible contact person from our sales-department in this regard!
07.08.2020 - Environmental protection / glove packaging
Dear business partners,
The subject of environmental protection and, unfortunately, environmental pollution (keyword: microplastics in our oceans) is currently on everyone's lips. As HELMUT FELDTMANN GmbH we asked ourselves what contribution we can make to environmental protection.
An approach to conserve paper and plastics resources is seen in the way our gloves are packaged. Through many discussions with our customers we can say that a packaging of the gloves in single polybags is mostly dispensable.
We have therefore decided to no longer package our protective gloves in single bags, but in bundles (usually 12 pairs). This is to help protect the environment from unnecessary PE packaging and unnecessary paper consumption .The conversion was initiated on our part with orders that was sent out to our suppliers from September 2018.
Of course, it will also be possible in future to purchase goods in individual bags as part of a special procurement. In case of interest, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We will inform you again shortly before the first goods receipt with converted packaging in our warehouse.
We hope and believe to trade also in your and ours all interest with the above mentioned measure and remain
