Delve into the groundbreaking work Heskins performed for a European logistics giant, focusing on warehouse aisle marking – an essential yet often overlooked aspect of manufacturing efficiency.
In the bustling realm of manufacturing, where every second counts, the logistical layout plays a critical role. In 2010, a premier multinational manufacturer, renowned for producing toothpaste and soaps, reached out to us. Their challenge was unique, one that resonated with many in the manufacturing space but seldom addressed with a sustainable solution.
The Logistical Challenge
Imagine a vast production space, humming with activity 24/7, where production lines never halt. Using resins, a common solution for marking, was rendered impossible due to the continuous operations. Beyond the logistical constraints of drying times, the solvents and odours emitted during the application of these 2-part epoxy resins could compromise the integrity of the products, risking contamination. Paints, another commonly used marking method, echoed similar concerns. They lacked the durability required and were ill-suited for an environment demanding impeccable quality standards.
While the company had conventionally relied on standard floor marking tapes, the outcome was far from satisfactory. The constant wear and tear, the fading colours, and the incessant need for reapplication were a drain on resources and time.
The Heskins Solution: PermaStripe to the Rescue
Understanding the company’s concerns, we introduced them to our flagship marking solution, PermaStripe rolls and warehouse marker shapes. Tailored for durability, these markers assured longevity and vibrancy. They were designed for a single application, eliminating the constant need for replacements. The lack of fumes or solvents made them the ideal choice for a manufacturer concerned about maintaining the purity of their products.
