Having identified areas that were costing unnecessary money, time, and packaging waste, we provided solutions to tighten up Faccenda’s processes and bring impressive cross-site benefits.
We suggested using the higher yield Carestretch™ machine and Carewrap™ films along with optimising the machine settings. This created significant reductions in plastic packaging waste and saved money, with additional gains made by replacing pallet wrap machinery where required.
Due to performance issues with their usual hand pallet wrap, we replaced it with Carewrap™ film as the standardised product throughout all six sites, enabling enhanced operator efficiencies at the lowest possible cost per wrapped pallet available. Carepole dispensers were also installed at some sites to reduce operator effort and risk of RSI.
We also implemented a standardised group-wide specification for all packaging tapes to reduce and manage costs, along with longer hand tape rolls to reduce downtime and core waste.
