Secure a step increase in efficiency, in order to be able to contract pack a new customer’s volume; solve technical and quality issues related to full sleeve bottling
- €3 million profit (EBITDA) per annum
- Efficiency improved by over 45 % within 4 months and by 75 % within 12 months
Why did this manufacturer join forces with chartwell?
An existing UK client asked Chartwell to assess capacity and help improve a critical contract bottling process. Productivity needed to ramp up quickly, following a new contract packaging deal with a US based customer. However, there were unresolved technological constraints with a new full sleeve format on the exterior of the bottle, and massive pressure to boost capacity before the peak season and new sales arrived.
Emig has a highly motivated leadership team who were working hard to improve both the throughput and quality of a new sleeving operation. Chartwell coached the team to understand and realise the true potential of the line.
Results of the 3 month project
- Output increased by 45 %
- Contract secured with EBITDA of €3 million per annum
- Team continued to increase output by 75 % within 1 year
