Solución has worked with this third party packaging company based in Wisconsin. The client provides packaging needs for industry leaders in the marine, plumbing, and grocery markets. Solución has grown a relationship with the client from limited responsibilities in 2005 to 100% responsibility of their entire second shift operation in two separate buildings with up to 70 associates. Solución has integrated its operations, safety, and quality strategies into the client’s facility to insure adherence to their site business metrics. We have also demonstrated our industrial engineering strengths through the implementation of a continuous process improvement program, resulting in an average of 40% efficiency improvements.
Increasing our level of production responsibilities to currently support over 400 part numbers, Solución continues to add new products through our aggressive unit pricing / quoting process and labor standards library. This allows us to maintain a competitive alternative for the client’s new business ventures and assist in attracting new prospective clients. Additionally, several initiatives were employed by Solución to maintain and improve worker methods, productivity, and product accuracy.
Solución currently develops line layouts for their grocery consumer lines as well as a first article inspection process for new product introduction needs. Solución developed six-sigma pareto quality charts and maintains weekly quality reports to support the clients process controls initiatives.
This account is managed on a piece rate model which is a major advantage to the client. Solución has to maintain strict engineering, and resource management techniques to insure that we exceed all of our manufacturing responsibilities which in turn is a payback for the client due to our on-time delivery achievements. This also provides our client with the opportunity to utilize Solución whenever they need to meet an unscheduled customer demands or short term delivery requirements. Our pricing structure also allows our client to accurately forecast labor cost and profit margins on a unit basis.
Our recruiting team has developed and maintained a strong labor pool and well to support the clients weekend production requirements for the last two years. During the peak season Solución will operate a seven day work schedule.
