Background

A large consumer products food producer wanted to consolidate production of two complete packaging lines located in separate facilities.

Approach

Foth developed line relocation plans and line layouts that enhanced operations, streamlined processes, and allowed our client to replace three less productive lines with one efficient line.

Results

The line relocation led to increased productivity, reduced maintenance costs and reduced overall labor costs. Our innovations also provided enhanced line flexibility, allowing for the accommodation of new and future SKUs.
