Pre-Printed Thermoformable Plastic Packaging
Control Group was able to provide a multi-million dollar savings solution by streamlining the manufacturing process for Gillette®, the largest razor manufacturer in the world. We accomplished this by printing directly onto our customer's PVC material before the forming process took place. This capability eliminated the need for plastic inserts, labels, and the related labor. The end result was so cost effective that Gillette® rolled out the process to a number of their other products.

Control Group was approached by a major brand pharmaceutical company to help solve an eye-mark repeat inconsistency they were experiencing with their printed film that was adversely affecting their filling operation line. Their then current supplier could not maintain the tight registration and the required eye-mark to eye-mark tolerances in order for their filling line to operate without stopping and restarting the line. Approached after several other well-known suppliers, we were able to resolve the eye-mark tolerance issue that had plagued this pharmaceutical giant for years. Our solution to the problem has allowed our customer to substantially increase their fill line throughput capacity without line interruption and significantly reduce their waste.
