Despite a Retail Design Agency, we are vendors and suppliers too, where we manufacture our creative designs and deploy them too. We lead the industry with our two core marks of 10,000+ stores/yr deliverance and bagged A’Design Award.
In the Indian context, we categorize vendors and suppliers into three standpoints:
Category A - Manufacturers Laced With Engineering Brains:
This deadly amalgamation is rare with 5% existence in a whole country like India. They combine cost engineering, material engineering with assembly engineering. They also blend technology with production in which traditional ways and modern techniques are consolidated with each other like mold, thermo, and injection technologies. They go with the best packaging designs that are capable of safe product deliverance with the best logistics design that can emancipate a country-wide redemption. They also control cost on the quantity which later helps the client in getting the best cost.
Category B - Pure Manufacturers With Expertise:
They do not include extravagant engineered designs as they only compress on manufacturing and production. They comprise about 35% of existence. No technology laced packaging design and logistics design. In a nutshell, they can be called manufacturing vendors with pure expertise.
Category C - Small Single Expertise-driven Manufacturers:
They have the largest existence of 60% all over the country. As they are ‘go-to’ vendors, the quick installations of signages to LED Glow-lit boards, they do it all. The single expertise gives them the advantage of perfection in deliverance to the clients but the same boon can be a curse in terms of competition, but yet sorted.
There are also different other types of vendors and suppliers which are a part of the above categories, like:
Also, from the above A, B, C categorization, D’Art amalgamates itself in category A. We are amongst the few but we fuel the vendor industry with technology laced designed deliverance. Our USP is from our excellent team who has both a designing and manufacturing background. We eye and deliver 20,000+ stores in one year from design to production to deployment from engineered brains which include our Award-Winning designers who helped us to bag one of the most coveted international design award “A’Design” award.
Clearing the chaos, we possess a five-pointer advantage for clients. It goes from:
1. By giving the best cost to clients as to when we deal in volumes we are able to provide them with the cost ‘best’ from other vendors in the industry.
2. By providing the best service amongst our competitors we mean it literally on the table when we vow our clients for serving them. For the sake of name and trust, which we have earned over the years, we are committed to serving the best.
3. There are many dressed like us, but we are amongst them who have production brains with an understanding of design aesthetics. This makes us a deadly combination for hiring.
4. Quick turn around.
5. Last but not the least, over the years we have a well-established network of production nation-wide covering all the directions N.E.W.S.
