How INSITE Solves Manufacturer COVID-19 Challenges

Because of the pandemic, more people are opting for food from retailers rather than restaurants, which has increased the demand for packaged food.

But, although business is booming for food and beverage manufacturers, these companies are also experiencing workforce challenges and safety risks due to the very nature of their work.

Todd Davis, Manager of INSITE Packaging, explained that retailers pushing to keep their shelves stocked puts pressure on these manufacturers to ramp up production.

However, “this is an industry that already struggles with a transient workforce and hiring enough skilled employees to do some of these jobs. It’s a really big challenge for them, and automation really helps solve some of those problems,” he said.

Packaging automation brings many benefits to these organizations: increased efficiency, uptime, capability and safety are just a few of them.

In addition, INSITE’s product lines offer something extra.

Many manufacturers struggle with finding workers skilled enough to operate the machinery in their factories. An employee’s skill level can make a huge difference at these companies.

Andy Quist, Douglas’s Vice President of Marketing and Sales, revealed that the company’s advanced case erectors were designed to reduce the workforce skill gap and simplify the process.

 “No company’s perfect, but we’ve gone a long way in achieving that with our case erector,” Davis said.
