TRUSTED. EFFICIENT. RELIABILE.
Struggling to find enough qualified workers for his small beverage packaging company in Wisconsin, business owner David Maletto had to find another way to keep up with orders for variety packs of beer for large brewers including MillerCoors. He needed a solution that would increase efficiencies by streamlining unskilled, repetitive tasks.
Group O, with over 45 years of packaging equipment expertise and relationships with leading manufacturers, assisted Maletto Packaging in selecting and installing a state-of-the-art robotic palletizing machine. The APT Manufacturing Solutions palletizer can perform the tasks of case erectors, pallet dispensing, slip-sheet feeding, and stretch wrapping in one robotic solution resulting in a significant reduction in labor costs while increasing productivity and efficiency.
Bottom Line Impact
David Maletto told the New York Times that the new palletizing machine has helped him reduce labor costs and reduce the time spent scouring the region for qualified workers. It has also helped him meet the ever-increasing demands of his customers.
“If we didn’t get things automated and moving forward, we were the ones who would have been left behind.”
