Menasha is a provider of primary and secondary packaging services for large consumer product goods (CPG) companies. Over the course of 11 years the company has grown from 40,000 square feet to four locations totaling 1.5 million square feet. At the Minooka, IL site the main focus is Point-of-Purchase (POP) displays and end load cartons.
In its early days, the company began tracking forklift fleet information on paper. As the number of locations and forklifts began to expand, the manual, paper-based system couldn’t be scaled effectively to meet the needs of the business. Inaccurate data and delays in recording inhibited management’s ability to make appropriate decisions and to continue to plan effectively for the company’s ongoing growth. It was time to adopt an electronic system that could accurately record data not only about the forklifts themselves but also their movements within the warehouse.
