Mondi Industrial Bags, North America is nearing completion of a wide range of improvements aimed at improving product quality and the speed of shipments at all of its North American plants, the company announced Wednesday.
Beginning in July 2014, Mondi invested in high-speed printing capabilities, packaging, robotic palletizing systems, expanded and upgraded warehousing, a clean room for food-grade packaging production, and a new IT system.
“The investment reflects Mondi Industrial Bags’ commitment to serving its North American customers with new levels of excellence that are in line with Mondi’s world class global standards for quality and efficiency,” says Mark Ushpol, President of Mondi Industrial Bags in North America. “We tapped Mondi’s vast global knowledge and experience in the industrial bags sector to identify and procure the fastest and most technically advanced packaging and printing resources. Our ultimate goal is to ensure our customers’ success.”
Mondi's new IT system is geared towards improving customer communication and increased supply chain integration. The clean room will be located in the company's Salt Lake City facility, and is equipped with detection equipment for food-grade bag production.
“We have repositioned the business in the last 18 months to create a sustainable business and an innovative market presence, which supports our customer partnerships and strengthens our business relationships,” Ushpol notes. “We’ve had our challenges over this period. However, we’ve started to settle and our customers are acknowledging the improvements they’re beginning to see. Over the next year we will realize benefits from our investment, and our customers will experience the advantages of dealing with a leading, committed, global player in the IB market.”
