Quadpack Plastics was founded a year ago, and this has been an eventful year. The addition of injection molding to Quadpack's production capabilities has broadened the company's offering, which can find the right solution for each customer from its suppliers, or manufacture it in-house. Skeyndor and Germaine de Capuccini are just two examples of the brands that now benefit from Quadpack Plastics' services.
Improvements to plant organization and employee facilities, health and safety measures and new equipment have all contributed to increasing efficiency at the plant, located in Castellbisbal, near Barcelona, Spain.
What's more, a continuous equipment monitoring system is now in place at this plant, as well as at the other plants in the Production Division. This intelligent system collects data in real time, facilitating production planning, preventive maintenance and efficiency analysis to help Quadpack achieve its target of an overall efficiency rate of at least 85 %.
In terms of product offering, Quadpack Pastics' portfolio of acrylic jars has been enhanced with new materials, including SMMA and Surlyn, which give thickness and transparency to high-end jars, and PETG, a new option of particular interest to sunscreen brands, thanks to its compatibility with SPF formulas.
Ernesto Cara, Production Division Manager, commented: "Quadpack Plastics' first year has been very active and productive. I'm proud of the results we've achieved. In production, there's no end to the process of improvement, but today, on our first anniversary, we're exactly where we wanted to be."
