NK Newlook – Pandora manufacturer for the Americas

Pandora jewelry manufactured all of their furniture in their native Denmark. As the company embarked on a U.S. debut, they encountered logistic difficulties, such as the fact that U.S.  standards and European ones are different. Pandora wanted a local U.S.  solution that would be qualitative and cost-effective without compromising their vision. Pandora called upon NK newlook to build store fixtures for their North American, South American, Central American, and Caribbean markets. Working on a tight schedule, NK Newlook re-engineered, manufactured, and installed all Pandora jewelry display units in concept stores and personalized corners.
