German term or phrase:zupacken
Help! I need a snappy rendition of "wir packen zu!" for a brochure. The company manufactures clamshell buckets and grabs, so it's a play on words, and I seem to be absolutely braindead at the moment.
Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
Explanation: maybe silly - but perhaps the pun is understood in connection with grabs and clamshell buckets (what on earth are those?).
Of course, it is also a word play on what we know as a CLAM BAKE in the US.
