Graphic Packaging Harnesses Rapid-Improvement Events to Cut Costs



One of the world's largest producers of packaging solutions, Graphic Packaging decided to deploy Lean techniques throughout its organization to improve operations. Working with BMGI, Graphic Packaging started with its plant in Bristol, England. After reeling in  €175,000 in annual, hard savings from just three Lean projects, the plant was ready to enact more Lean projects from a list of 50 opportunities identified with BMGI consultants and to deploy Lean throughout two other European plants, one in Spain and one in France.
