Productivity
We have been set up to assist all sizes of disposables manufacturers in becoming and staying profitable. The charts to the right show the amount of money that can be saved by achieving high productivity and low machine waste in a baby diaper manufacturing plant.
(The productivity savings are based on a ratio of 1 to 3 between variable and fixed costs)

Typical Efficiency savings
From the charts for a 3 shift operation we can see that an increased productivity of 10,000 diapers per shift will earn nearly $175,000 per year, and a reduction in machine waste of 2% will earn around $90,000 per year. A total of $265,000 every year!
To effect these sort of savings we will visit your company and review and improve any or all of the items from the lists below. The general scope and cost would be agreed between us prior to the visit.
