Real-Time Production

Are you an A or B customer?  It might be better to be B.

At Bag People we've got a sales presence in the 3 primary regions of the world.

A nice 'story', but that's not what you're interested in.

You want to know about the engine room of our business, which is production.

Our 2 primary factories are in Asia (China) and the Sub-Continent (India).

These 2 areas hold a great deal of production power & expert knowledge to make the high quality products we deliver.

As such, our Product Management Team is located in Sydney (Australia) which is in the same (or very close) timezone as our factories.

The closeness to our production area allows a much smoother order fulfilment path which means that any hurdles or queries can be managed in "real-time"... as they happen.

You might not think it's a big deal, but here's a frequent scenario.

  * the factory has 21 jobs to complete in 4 days
  * you're job is next on the line
  * there a query about a stitching requirement, print complication or fabric discrepancy

There are 2 ways this scenario can unfold.

A)  your job gets removed from the line because no one can answer the question in "real-time"... can you really expect your bag supplier to answer a telephone call at 2:30am? As such you loose 4 days and go to the end of the cue.

B)  our Factory Manager calls our office while production is paused, the query is answered & your job starts again.

You've got options, it's just a matter of which supplier can best cope with your needs.

You decide whether you're an A or B customer.

Non-woven PP is Recyclable - Type 5

The humble Non-woven Shopping Bag is a quiet achiever.

It's done more for the minimisation of single-use plastic bags in the last 10 years than probably any other product or initiative.

There's 2 things you need to know about the Non-woven Fabric we use at Bag People.

NUMBER 1 : our fabric contains 30% recycled content.  We can supply 100% recycled content if needed.

NUMBER 2 : our fabric is recyclable.  Check with your local recycling depot to confirm the Type 5 collection point and simply pop it in there.

Once again the quiet achiever is doing it's bit for all of us.

Cellar Door Sales

When you've got people to your vineyard it is all about the experience.

You want to show off your property, products, service, quality and yourselves in the best possible light.

You want everything to be perfect and you want those customers to have the absolute best memories of their time with you.

A lasting memory you can give them is a reusable bottle carrier with your brand/message in it.

The idea is simple and the memories will last, plus the added reminder for your customers of their great stay with you.

Make sure you keep them coming back for your products and more importantly they talk with their friends about you.

Bag People can custom-make bottle carriers for you : Contact Us for more information.
