Sharp Packaging Delivers
“We first started working with Sharp by looking at samples,” recalls James Stewart, manufacturing manager at Carclo Technical Plastics. “We switched to Sharp because they gave us a good price on a poly bag that we use on our automated bagging machines.”
Carclo designs, manufactures and assembles injection molded components. Their equipment is set up to feed 200 molded parts into the stand alone bagger, then the bag is sealed. The parts are coming off the molding machine, onto a conveyor, into another piece of equipment, then into a bag. “We’ve been running this system for about fifteen years,” notes James.
“We have a blanket order with Sharp, and they always get the bags here on time,” says James. “We’ve had no issues with delivery. The blanket order was an easy process to set up. They gave me five different quantities, and I selected one. It gives them a heads up on what we’re going to be using over the year, so they have the forecast and can schedule their production.”
“Sharp’s bags perform better than the ones we had been using,” adds James. “We had issues in the past with our other supplier. We have less slip on the rollers than we had with the other supplier. We find ourselves not cleaning the rollers as often, so there’s not as much downtime. That’s a big plus.
“Sharp employees take their company to heart. They are very, very easy, to work with.”
