Case Study - Collation Stretch Banding Film

The Situation.

A very well run company and a market leader in their field, they are continuously trying to improve the process and efficiency in all areas of its business operations. They were open to innovative solutions for traditional problems in their packaging department and had already taken large steps towards a company cost-saving exercise in its secondary packaging procedures.

The Challenge.

The challenge for Stretchband Packaging was to show them that with our High Yield Collation Stretch Banding Film it was possible to make further material reductions whilst actually increasing collation product stability and safety. If this could be achieved they would also need to see a further cost-per-bundle/banding reduction.

The Process.

Step one was carrying out a full assessment of current practice and establish any future requirements. This was conducted on site by one of our expert film specialist. From this information a High Yield Collation Stretch Banding Film solution was suggested and a trial conducted. With all of the key performance indicators ticked in the initial trial, the customer began an extended trial, alongside other high strength, high performance competitor films.

The Result.

On all four of the fundamental KPI’s our High Yield Collation Stretch Banding Film outperformed its competitors, providing the lightest, strongest, most cost effective and most reliable solution for the customer. The customer now has a dedicated stock holding of material, available on a 24 hour service for distribution to any of its UK sites. Stretchband Packaging is proud to supply the best product with the best available customer service and terms.
