»A perfect fit is always tailor-made«

GOEBEL IMS initiates multi-channel campaign >>Tailor-made Converting<<. As a specialist in machine manufacturing for web-shaped materials we want to draw the attention to our many years of expertise in the production of special machines for the converting industry. The core message is: ""A perfect fit is always tailor-made"". Almost every machine in GOEBEL IMS' portofolio is tailor-made and adapted to our customers' individual needs. The campaign not only aims at promoting image and awareness, it focuses on the slitter rewinder RAPID D1.


The centerpiece of the campaign is a video production reflecting a creative translation of GOEBEL IMS' promise to design, develop and produce customized slitting and winding solutions. With the help of the well known tailor and designer Stephan Görner from the Westend of Frankfurt the bridge between industry and haute couture is built.

The Markting Idea

The production of tailor-made clothes is time-consuming and requires intuition and creativity. Custom tailors measure the customer and reproduce their figure in an idealized form to conceale mistakes of nature. The customer chooses between hundreds of fabric samples, yet until the final fitting some uncertainty remains. Therefore, he needs a partner he trusts.


This also applies to special machine manufacturing. In contrast to standard machines, these are specially designed and manufactured according to the customer's requirements. It is necessary to keep in mind that the processed material requirements aren't always ideal. The machine must match the respective material conditions and compensate possible disatvantages. Moreover, until the commissioning is completed, the customer must rely on the experience and competence of the machine manufacturer and on his technical advice.
