Consumer Packaging Company Implements Performance System and Delights Customer

Client Company: Sonoco is a $5 billion global provider of consumer packaging, industrial products, and packaging supply-chain services. Performance Solutions has worked with Sonoco in the United States and Europe since 2012. This case study examines work with a unionized plant in Poland, which handles 1.1 billion packs of razors annually on 60 lines. A nine-year-old greenfield operation, the facility assembles razor-package components (provided by a customer) and then seals, sorts, and labels packages and cases. These operations are labor-intensive, requiring 1,200 full-time employees and another 800 temporary workers (to support new product launches, equipment start-ups, and seasonality).
