CREON GOES TO PSI!

Every year, Creon goes to PSI – The Leading International Network of the Promotional Product Industry – in Dusseldorf, Germany. We go PSI to fish out new and innovative branded items and suppliers and keep an eye on new and cool trends and ideas.

Joakim Håkansson, Key Account Manager at Creon, was particularly interested in the wide range of textile products present at the trade show. Many are produced with minimal use of harmful substances, which we see as a very positive environmental trend.

Key Account Managers Magdalena, Sibban, Fia and Isabel were also there and brought home new insights and fun and innovative branded item ideas. After the fair, Dragan, Art Director at Creon said ‘This years PSI has shown me that sustainability in materials and processes, transparency and tracability of goods and materials and a general good attitude towards people and the environment are to stay’. Good news for me and the promotional products industry!

Växjö Charity Gala Day 2018 – WHAT A SUCCESS!

Packed with activity. Packed with fun. Enjoyed by everybody. The Växjö Charity Gala Day 2018 started at 8 AM and went on throughout the day and rounded off with an exceptional entertainment gala at the Fort Knox Arena in Växjö. It was sponsored by large and small companies and organizations operating in and around Växjö, Kronoberg County, Sweden. Golf and Paddle Tennis were the main sporting activities of the day and competitions were held in these sports. In the evening, the Fort Knox Arena hosted a dinner and a show where entertainment celebrities gave us a great end to a great day. During the evening the three recipient groups of Växjö Charity Annual Funding together received over 1,000,000 SEK. The financial sponsorship comes from donations from companies in Växjö and Kronoberg County and beyond, and the proceeds of the Växjö Charity Gala Event.

CSR – we match yours

Creon is well known for creating and producing branded items that are responsibly made and managed. Our customers have very high corporate and environmental standards and it is very important to them that their branded items reflect their CSR goals. Creon conducts social and production facility audits including safety procedure inspection, working hour analysis, waste management inspection and factory employee interviews. In depth reports and our visits to high-volume manufacturers make it possible for us to propose and drive beneficial change in the lives and well being of factory employees. So, when you’re ordering branded items. Make sure they will be responsively manufactured. Actually, it’s your responsibility.

Employer branding

Many companies and organizations are so busy with their plans and strategies for the future and forget to appreciate the people who are doing the work. Branded gift sets and quality branded items are very effective when you want to show your appreciation and celebrate the people that brought you to where you are today. Choose surprise gifts for your employees that reflect your brand values and dreams. Show them that you value them. Make them feel needed. That will empower your brand.

Goodbye Kicki

We’ll miss you a lot! Christina Hamilton, known to our customers and her colleagues as Kicki, will leave Creon and retire at the end of this year. Kicki has been in the business of branded items since 1982. She joined Creon in January 2000, and since then she has helped us to grow and reach where we are today. In her role as Account Manager Kicki supported our customers with professionalism and personality. She was an excellent Creon ambassador. As a colleague, her wonderful sense of humor and unbeatable optimism spread joy and confidence to all of us at the Creon offices. We wish her the very best in her retirement. Thank you Kicki, for everything.
