In order to develop a business and market strategy it is important to understand the market, technologies and current products on one hand as well as how the current capabilities in own organisation and assets can be developed to offer better products and services on the other.
We have the expertise to help our clients in different ways to understand their market and the evolving market needs. We will combine this with technical understanding of available assets and capabilities and develop strategies for improvement to create added value.
An important part of the profit equation is the cost and understanding how this can be influenced by smart strategic developments. We understand how different factors like raw material sourcing as well as product mix will affect the cost.
Based on analysis and understanding of your operations and organisation we can help you to reduce costs in these areas.
Norner contributes in development of high quality, innovative and sustainable polymer solutions. Polymers, plastics and their modification with additives and modifiers is a critical factor for all applications and markets where we provide our services. Circular economy has also become a key topic for the plastics industry and Norner is heavily involved in such projects.
When you are considering your strategic choices for improving the value of your operation, we can help you to identify, select and develop the way forward.
Norner helps customer to innovate both through our own technology centre as well as helping to create a better environment for them. Capability for innovation depend on competences, facilities as well as organisation and structure.
With our experience from the industry, our advisors can offer you unique support and problem-solving in this area.

Training and competence are critical factors for business and profitability.
Our Norner Academy training and seminars are specialised programmes and customised to each client or group. We will organise these in good dialogue and planning with our client in order to create an interesting training content.
Typical participants for these courses are Production Personnel, Product Designers and Developers, Packaging Developers, Sales and Marketing, Purchasing, Technologists in the plastics industry or others who deal with plastics in their work.
These programmes can cover a wide range of subjects in the field of polymer technology based in individual requirement at our client and different level of complexity. Some relevant subjects of the plastics technology are:
Polymer structure and properties
Circular economy and material recycling
Polymer technology, production and markets
Plastics end use applications and requirements
Additives for the plastic industry
Plastics processing technologies and applications
Our modular portfolio of plastics technology courses will strengthen the qualifications of the participants in plastics, technology and markets, processing techniques, end use applications and recycling.
A Norner Academy program can be arranged at the site of the customer or in the labs and facilities of Norner depending on facilities required. Our training will be tailor made to cover high level insight for management, specific technologies for technical organisations, testing and lab methods for experts as well as training for non-plastic professionals.
This is a unique opportunity to tailor high quality training and tutorials for your needs. We offer platform based courses: Introduction, advanced and tutorial courses and seminars.
