Greycon (UK) revolutionises cartonboard production
(London, UK, August 30, 2016) In January 2016, Greycon implemented their world renowned system at Mel Paper, one of the largest manufacturers of recycled board in the food and general packaging industry.
Mel Paper is located near Thessaloniki and is the only manufacturer of recycled carton board in Greece. Mel Paper produces more than 100,000 tons of coated printing carton every year. These products are distributed to demanding markets across Western Europe, Africa and Asia.
“The implementation was carried out to the highest standard, it was completed on time and the communication throughout the process was flawless. Greycon has changed the way we work, we have never been more efficient!” commented Eleni Parisi, Project Manager at MEL Paper.
Mel Paper is an environmentally conscientious company and one of the key aspects of the implementation was to reduce the amount of waste produced. Mel Paper required a comprehensive solution that eliminates time consuming manual data entry and can increase the production output.
The Greycon system plans, schedules, trims and executes the production. Working seamlessly with SAPtm R3 it effortlessly transitions between the different modules. Since implementation the Greycon system has created significant cost savings for the company and optimised productivity.
