U.S. Corrugated, creating a Culture of Excellence in Performance Packaging
Here at USCorr, we’re not looking to just sell boxes. Our goal is nothing short of adding value to your business. We get to know our customers, understanding your servicing needs, product designs and all aspects of your operations.
By conducting a 360 ̊ audit of your business, USCorr engineers a Performance Packaging Solution that benefits your bottom line.
U.S. Corrugated is the only company to deploy Packaging Blackbelts to your locations to determine the Key Performance Indicators that will determine the best Technical Design for your needs. We measure against the highest performance metrics and conduct extensive testing and validation. This fully-integrated system ensures a unique value proposition of quality and efficiency.
USCorr Packaging Blackbelts are trained experts in trouble shooting packaging, designs and manufacturing internally.
USCorr Blackbelts fine-tune the use of packaging for your specific products and process, ensuring we’re using the right paper and the right technical design for each job, reducing unnecessary purchases and excess material costs.
They apply Lean Metrics Skills in customer filling, packaging and product protection applications. Our Blackbelts analyze your operations, considering production rate, production downtime and throughput, to provide packaging that will perform quickly and reliably in your environment.
Sure, we have the ability to produce any size, shape, graphic specification or board combination. But Performance Packaging takes design a step further, engineering cost-effective solutions that protect and perform.
Using the analysis of our Packaging Blackbelts, USCorr Technical Design teams determine the attributes of exterior and interior packaging that will maximize strength and protection of your product, while minimizing excess air space. Wherever possible we utilize the latest in light-boarding(weighting) and cutting-edge paper solutions, reducing fiber usage and cost. As needed our Graphics & Brand Design teams can take retail and POP packaging to the next level, with colorful and strategic on-package designs.
But Technical Design is as much about your process as your products. Do you hand pack or run high speed erector and filling equipment? Is your business in a hot or humid environment? What are your fulfillment and delivery strategies? Do your products ship in refrigerated coolers? All these details and countless others are factored in to decisions around ergonomics, gluing, scoring, porosity of paper, printing and labeling – so that your custom packaging runs fast and without fail.
Finally, here at USCorr we determine the performance metrics that drive design, establishing a Quality Standard that we measure against and test before we ship it to you.
