Where good things happen
Now we are on a new mission. That is to help forward looking companies transition to a circular economy.
At Splitvision we help our customers initiate the move out of the linear economy and towards a sustainable, circular one. The need for a circular economy and the benefits are well researched, documented and pursued by industry leaders from Google to IKEA to Unilever.
We are experts at creating product solutions with durable qualities and functions that can be used and reused by users, thereby maintaining the item in the inner ring, where most value is preserved. For packaging, we employ the same rationale. By putting more effort into the packaging initially, we believe in creating a valued by-product to your core item, increasing the chances of a long second life at the user’s home.For single use or few-time use applications we twist and turn the manufacturing techniques to lower your footprint while ideal solutions are still immature. When we do make disposable packaging, we promote renewable source options to minimize negative leakage in the system.

And while we are on our way
Merely the thought of trying to go circular can be paralyzing. But that is no excuse not to do anything here and now.
The good news is that there are many actions you can take in the short term to reduce your climate impact. It’s not just about finding new materials. It may just as well be about changing your ordering routines or making your item repair friendly.
We have tools and experience to help you quickly improve your climate footprint. It’s urgent so call us now and let’s get going.
What this means is that we’ve integrated the industrial design process with a manufacturing system, that can ensure your original idea’s integrity while maintaining control over costs and speed up time to market.

Developing products is a risky affair.
Assumptions can be wrong, skills inadequate, timelines too tight, information lost or missing. The higher you aspire in your project; the more complex it gets.
And with increased complexity – ever higher risks.
Our job is making your development a success. To achieve the height of innovation you seek, while reducing risks along the way.
With that, we speed up your time to market.
We are able to do this by our unique combination of skills, manufacturing network and organization; around a single point of contact coordinating all aspects of your project.
So that you are in control – from initial idea – to success delivered.
Design / Engineering
With more than 30 years of experience in product development, we strive to direct our talented design team to deliver competitive solutions to our customers. Our design process is structured on a flat, open and systematic methodology, based on our expertise within; Design Strategy, Product and Transportation Design, HMI / GUI, Advanced 3D Modelling, Mechanical-Engineering, and Prototyping. But what really makes us unique is our manufacturing experience. So when engaging Splitvision for product design, you also get access to significant manufacturing experience as well.
Multi supplier network
We are a manufacturing- technique independent supplier. That means that we don’t own the machines that would produce your item. But this also means that we don’t try to convince you to manufacture in a certain technique just to fill the capacity of our machines.
Instead, we develop a solution which is best from a market perspective and work through a broad network of resource owners (factories) to fulfil the production.
From small Mom & Pop vendors to large scale manufacturing plants we have the network and experience to select a correct fit for your product.
Our main production areas are in China and Europe. Of course, all our partners are thoroughly vetted, adhere to our CSR policies and audited on a regular basis.
We are a truly market-orientated production resource.

Environmental collaborations and projects
Advising our customers on a path forward to a circular economy is a long term endevour.
But we need to take action here and now to collectively start working off the enormous environmental debt we have as a society. That is why Splitvision is engaged continuously in various environmental projects that may perhaps not be directly linked to our business, but are areas that we see where we can make a substantial difference and help grow.
Green Venture (TZ) is a start-up recycling plant based in Arusha, Tanzania run by Edgar Edmund. Edgar won the Children’s Climate award in 2017 for his early attempts at devising a plastic recycling machine to make building bricks from waste. Through capital investments in industrial machinery and mentoring from Splitvision, we have together been able to build a recycling plant turning waste PE and PP into plastic planks for decking and furniture. This way, the waste that otherwise would disperse and pollute precious natural environments or water ways now get upcycled into useful and stable products. In 2021, we have taken great steps and now Green Venture is upcycling approximately 500 kgs daily. Thinking in terms of compensation, that amount corresponds to a large chunk of Splitvision´s usage of virgin resin. Get in touch if you feel that this system could fit in with your business, and let’s work together in creating a grass roots recycling industry!
Another project supported by Splitvision is The Global Ecobrick Alliance (GEA), which represents the coming together of plastic transition leaders around the world. Their invention – Ecobricks, are a simple, low-tech solution to our plastic waste and pollution problem that follows the Earth’s ancient example in carbon care. An Ecobrick is a PET bottle packed solid with clean and dry used plastic, and, when packed to a set density, they become reusable building blocks that sequester plastic.
The Ecobrick movement spreads primarily through training sessions in the field. Splitvision has sponsored “training of trainer” sessions to get an exponential growth of the movement in Indonesia and the Philippines. We have also been advising on how conscious businesses could team up and make Ecobricking part of larger system. In 2021, despite Covid-19, The Global Ecobrick Alliance (GEA) managed to launch a manual blockchain for valuing an ecological service. We believe it is the first in the world. Check it out!
Since climate change spurred by greenhouse gas emissions may be one of the most urgent environmental issues to tackle, Splitvision has set up an offsetting mechanism through Zero Mission and Plan Vivo. In our opinion, forests may be the most efficient carbon capturer of all and brings with it a wealth of other benefits such as protection from land erosion, cooler microclimate and water retention. We are currently carbon offsetting by supporting forestry in Bujang Raba on Sumatra in Indonesia. With smart design, the Co2 footprint of your product can be low enough to balance the inevitable release by carbon offsetting at an economically viable level.
Splitvision provides design, engineering and manufacturing of premium packaging solutions. From our partner sites in Asia and Europe we supply solutions globally in a wide range of techniques and materials. Whether you’re looking for rigid box with perfect 90 degree corners and outstanding finish or molded pulp replacement of your existing plastic packaging, or a complete system to reduce your Co2 footprint – we have it or can get it.
Cases and Accessories
Splitvision provides design, engineering and manufacturing of injection molded hard cases and other accessories. We have been the go-to supplier for the hearing aid industry for many years and have developed special competencies and materials for this application. Besides thermoforming and press molding we also work in cut- and sow materials to deliver simplified, coherent solutions for our global customers.
Our focus today is phasing down the use of virgin materials as quickly and safely as possible and increasing efficiencies to reduce CO2 emissions.
With our extensive experience and wide manufacturing network, Splitvision is perfectly equipped to take complete responsibility for realizing core product solutions.
In contrast to your normal design consultancy, we don’t end our commitment at a seductive design, but follow through all the way to delivered items. This full accountability reduces work-load on customer key resources and reduces risk while speeding up your time to market.
