Ear Flap was created
The company was directly related to the world of packaging machinery and specifically with automatic and semi-automatic palletized load wrappers.
A new brand called EAR FLAP was registered for the entire European Union to differentiate us from the “pack” sector.
Why Ear Flap? That is an appropriate name for a machinery company? And how about calling a computer APPLE? Obviously calling it Ear Flap has an explanation.
When the wrappers were designed, they thought about differentiating them from the rest. How do we do it?
The most visible parts of the wrappers is the column… we can make it square, triangular or rectangular, with sharp or rounded edges, but these shapes already exist on the market. Then we had…
… THE VISION
We would manufacture the machines with that profile, and while looking for a name, a sheet of paper covered half the image, and it resembled the profile of Mickey Mouse with his ears. From ears to earmuffs and from EAR to EAR FLAP.
We attended the first event as a brand at Hispack 2003. We would lay the foundations for the future brand image.
