Leading adhesive tape converter Parafix Tapes & Conversions has conducted a streamlining of its production techniques as part of its commitment to remain efficient, lean and cost-effective.
As a direct result of the challenging market conditions, Parafix has reassessed its business model, with a view to ensuring it remains profitable and customer focused despite the uncertain economic outlook. This rationalisation process has unfortunately resulted in 15 redundancies, across both the factory floor and also the management suite. However, the review process has created a more efficient business, and by concentrating on coaching the team and ensuring that productivity is maximized, Parafix is confident that it will improve its focus on delivering quality converted solutions that help to drive down its customers’ costs. Managing director Michael Punter commented on the streamlining process, saying; “Parafix, like many other manufacturing companies, has been affected by the downturn in the economy. Whilst, sadly, some redundancies have been made, we are committed to ensuring that the company maintains its position as the leader in its field.” “It is our fervent belief that by continuing to invest in staff development and ensuring that we adopt best practice principles across the business, we will be well placed to survive the recession and emerge from it in a strong position.”
