Teams work. The businesses that thrive in the marketplace are those who place a high priority on communication at every level — and those who invest in quality partnerships to advance the industry. This is especially true for the paper industry in the current market situation.
Building great partners begins on the factory floor between management and employees. A mill works with logistics that encompass orders, packaging, stock, inventory, customer database, machine order changes, usually with several shifts of workers. There is a lot of room for error and downtime, with even small mistakes leading to an idle machine for hours. Developing good communication with your floor creates less downtime and fewer surprises in the form of idled machines and reruns. Every mill has a range of communication tools and partnerships between units that result in better work performance.
