retail display units

Prepacking your retail display stands can save time and money. At OCCE we understand that ensuring that your merchandising displays are executed correctly can be challenge as retail store staff do not have the time and expertise, additionally hiring merchandisers to do this in store can be cost and time prohibitive. 

The team at OCCE have experience in building, packing, and distributing retail display units including RFQ, POS and shelf ready units. With proven attention to detail and pride taken in the work we do we can ensure that your brand will be presented perfectly! 

“OCC Enterprises have provided excellent and professional service namely in pre-packing of retail displays.

Their willingness to meet our requirements is much appreciated as it means there is one less factor to stress about during our busiest time of year.  I can confidently recommend OCC enterprises as a reliable, collaborative and highly competitive supplier.”
