Founder Andrew Walsh explains the new additions to tin packaging range.
AGHA Sydney Gift Fair exhibitor Tinco is renowned for having one of Australia’s largest range of decorative and plain tins, with over 28 years of experience supplying high-quality packaging solutions to keep products fresh, intact and shielded from light.
Founder Andrew Walsh has operated within the gift industry since emigrating from Ireland in 1988, and has established Tinco as a leading bespoke tin supplier manufacturing for many well-known chocolate, tea and biscuit brands in the Australian market.
The business returns to Sydney Olympic Park in February 2018 with a multitude of new designs, including decorative Easter tins with additions to the Peter Rabbit range, an extensive range from artist Sara Miller and fresh additions to the vintage-inspired Retro range.
“The beauty of tins is their versatility to traverse many sectors. We have a large selection of decorative cake tins and storage canisters, tin money boxes, lunch boxes, stationery boxes and retro items that are shaped like vintage record players, cassettes or petrol bowsers,” Walsh told the Australian Gift & Homewares Association (AGHA).
“Tinco is experiencing good growth on our bespoke tins as more and more companies realise the added value of tin packaging for their product,” he said.
Walsh is a long term participant at trade-facing events, having consistently exhibited Tinco products for many years at AGHA Gift Fairs to build its customer base, adding that having a regular stand display is the easiest process for meeting and engaging with stockists.
With such a diverse range, Tinco products can be found in independent gift stores, homewares stores, toy stores, pharmacies, newsagents, lolly shops and are suited to anyone in need of premium packaging.
“I have been associated with AGHA for thirty years and have always supported the concept of an association representing our diverse industry,” he explained.
“Having potential customers coming to your stand at an event is a great starting point. It’s a great way of developing direct working relationships and targets retail buyers much better than blanket advertising, where you can often have no idea if you are reaching the correct audience.
“I would thoroughly recommend to any retailer who has interests in the gift and homewares industry to attend AGHA Gift Fairs, as they might just find that little gem for their business that they did not realise was out there.”
