Marsden Packaging is a single-site contract packaging company based in north west England. Marsden specializes in primary and secondary packaging for the food and pharmaceutical industries and have attained many accreditations and certifications including BRC Grade AA, MHRA CMP Compliance, and ISO 9001.
As a relatively smaller co-pack operation, Marsden Packaging is laser-focused on running their operations as efficiently as possible in order to compete with much larger competitors. Previously, Marsden was running their operations using manual paper processes, which limited their operational efficiency and ability to grow their business due to:
· Track and trace processes for food audits were also extremely time-consuming, taking up to four hours to complete
· Lack of data insights that could be used to identify the bottlenecks which were causing production delays
“To enable to us to compete with our much larger competitors, we have to offer industry leading levels of quality and service. Utilizing Nulogy’s QCloud and PackManager software allows us to do this.”MICHAEL BRIGGS – PRESIDENT
Marsden Packaging needed a more efficient way for their quality supervisors to perform quality checks, as well as a way to automate the track and trace process so they could decrease the amount of time spent preparing for major food audits. Marsden also required real-time data and transparency into their production lines so they could identify the root causes of bottlenecks to improve production efficiency and decrease turnover times. Ultimately, Marsden chose to partner with Nulogy and implement QCloud and PackManager to provide them with the functionality they needed to run their business more efficiently and with state-of-the-art quality control.
“Before we implemented PackManager and QCloud, we were pretty good at doing our quality checks. However, being able to use PackManager is great because we cannot bring the wrong product to the wrong production line. This has helped us control and reduce the number of non-conformances.” RUBINA BOARDMAN – SENIOR SUPERVISOR
Since implementing PackManager and QCloud, Marsden Packaging has been able to significantly grow their business and increase operational efficiency by:
· Automating the track and trace process so that quality supervisors are able to perform recalls with the click of a button
· Being able to see real-time the bottlenecks to their production and quickly resolving those issues to improve efficiency
“The use of QCloud software has enhanced our quality control systems and has helped us increase customer satisfaction. It’s enabled us to grow our company with regards to both turnover and profitability.” MICHAEL BRIGGS -PRESIDENT
