You may have heard that paper business isn’t doing well because people often use electronic devices for reading newspapers, or for browsing catalogues, instead of using paper-bound media. Well, at least I do at times….
But not all sections of paper business are declining!
In fact, the global consumption of hygiene products is growing steadily, and all of us are buying a lot of stuff in the internet. This stuff gets shipped one day and it requires (protective) packaging. In consequence packaging producers are doing quite well, mostly. When business picks up, you could hire additional staff to cope with additional work, but labour is expensive in most developed countries.
The question remains: How would you deal with 600% production growth in 7 years?
The answer is automation, supported by software solutions integrated along the value chain. Marvinpac launched their digital transformation with SAP S/4HANA, which allows them to fulfill the multiple individual packaging requirements all their customers require. Empowered by SAP S/4HANA, Marvinpac experienced a true digital transformation to attract new customers, ensure traceability and innovate its services.
Established in 1999, Marvinpac is a leading player in contract packing (co-packing) in Europe on the markets of foodstuffs and confectionery, cosmetics and beauty care, hospitality and premium accessories.
