The craft of prototyping consists in the solid representation of a project, its shape and function, its aesthetic and properties. Prototypes aim at making the project progress until the design is set and the project carrier can work toward serial production and market launch.

The MMB Prototyping team is specialized in primary packaging : perfume bottles, cosmetics cases, lipsticks, spirit bottles, candle jars and other containers.

The Prototyping department, along with painters, finish blank parts in order to perfectly match customer expectations. Blank parts may come from a combination of many production technologies mastered at MMB and beyond in the Glass Valley. The craft of prototyping requires not only a wide array of technical knowledge and know-how but also to possess an artistic flair in this particular business, as customers often entrust MMB with technical research to generate new aesthetic proposals. The MMB Prototyping team is key in supporting customers creative process.
