Premier Plastics maintains worlds best practise with AspectPL
“We could not run without AspectPL.”
Premier Plastics is a custom blow and injection moulder which was established in 1970. They are a leading manufacturer and supplier of stock ‘off the shelf’ packaging for the personal care, cosmetic, health care, pharmaceutical and veterinary industries.
Premier Plastics was the first customer to install AspectPL in their Auckland factory in the 1990’s. The manager at the time, Steve Habershon knew that collecting data in order to analyze and improve the business was very important. He believed and there had to be a better way to manage production besides clipboards and spreadsheets and doing things manually.
Premier’s business has grown dramatically and they now manage 500 works orders at any one time across 42 machines.
Now owned by Cospak Pty Ltd, Steve Habershon is the manufacturing head for the group and states that “we could not run without AspectPL. Scheduling would be a nightmare and coordinating tool changes and keeping the factory humming would take significantly more resources than they presently use.
AspectPL is second to none where specifications and traceability are concerned especially with the vast array of products and their specifications we produce .”
Competing with the rest of the world, Premier Plastics are confident they can maintain worlds best practise and are able to deliver consistent quality. They continue to improve their performances and ensure healthy growth in the market, just as they have since the early 70’s.
It is no coincidence that the growth of Premier and AspectPL have run in parallel. It has been a win win situation.
