Our Plastic Solutions in Action
Large manufacturer uses MDI plastic products to efficiently store and move goods. The journey begins on the manufacturing floor where it once was cluttered with paper boxes but now appears tidier and safer since the company invested in reusable plastic containers. The shelves are neatly lined with color coded, barcoded hopper bins. Employees now find SKUs much easier when picking the small parts needed for final product assembly. The parts are placed into a shallow tray with dividers that move smoothly down a conveyor belt. The product is efficiently assembled and the trays are stacked, taking up minimal floor space.
