FLEXO Magazine : May 2014
FLEXO®: How many plants/employees does Master Packag- ing have today? What are the capabilities of each plant? Are there any specific tasks relegated to a specific location? Irving: Master Packaging has two plants: a corrugated and a folding carton operation. We currently employ 405 employees in our facilities. Both Master Packaging facilities are equipped with flexo and litho printing capabilities servicing the food, beverage and consumer product industries. FLEXO®: When did Master Packaging begin its road to FIRST Certification? Irving: We discovered the existence of FIRST Certification when we attended the 2012 FTA Forum. We immediately researched the Certification program upon our return and started taking steps to begin the certification process a few months later. FLEXO®: Why did Master Packaging embark on its FIRST Certification journey? Irving: Through the years, we have built a strong team of operators by benchmarking and learning from other printers through our network and associations, such as the FTA. What became apparent is that companies do things differently from one another. The FIRST Certification program provided an opportunity for us to increase our knowledge and expertise while implementing world class standardized processes and workflows in our plants.
