A Labor and Material Intensive Situation
In their warehouse, rolls of product would be stacked and stored by lying them on pallets, using honeycomb cardboard and banding to secure the rolls. For three years, Papyrolux continuously tried to improve the reliability and performance of the honeycomb product, however, the stability of this method continued to be tenuous.
