eProductivity Software (ePS) has confirmed that Holland, MI-based Coastal Container has invested in CorrTrim® and CorrTrac® software solutions from the ePS Corrugated Packaging Suite. The investment will deliver value to the new Fosber 110″ corrugator, empowering Coastal to maximise its operational efficiency while reducing costs and waste in the process – a key business win during a high inflation and high energy costs market.
Coastal Container confirmed expansion plans earlier this year that include an additional 65,000 sq ft of new manufacturing space, the installation of a new 110″ Fosber corrugator, and a new rail spur for the delivery of paper rolls. Bill Cessna, Director of Operations, commented, “As a company, we constantly look to technology to address the needs of our business today and plan for tomorrow. Having observed results from other corrugated box plants using CorrTrim and CorrTrac, we identified that the advanced systems would allow us to run faster and more efficiently, reducing waste and costs, while giving us scheduling and tracking visibility from paper to box. The solution fits with our sustainability strategy and ambitious growth plans.”
Cessna continued, “As a new supplier to Coastal, we are impressed with eProductivity Software; the team have demonstrated an understanding of our business and goals which has allowed us to quickly build trust. ePS is adaptable in its sales approach and can integrate with our existing systems. We have full confidence in them as a technology partner for our future.”
Chris Wood, Head of North America Packaging Sales, ePS, commented, “We are delighted to have Coastal Container on board. Working with customers who take steps to transform their business from a sheet plant to a box plant is not common, and it’s a privilege to have the opportunity in helping realize their vision. We look forward to supporting them as a partner on the journey ahead.
The new system is expected to go live in mid-2023 in conjunction with the new Fosber 110″ corrugator.
