With unemployment rates at record lows, many manufacturers are having a difficult time hiring enough employees to meet their customers’ product demand; leading to missed ship dates and disappointed customers.
As an alternative to bringing on inexperienced labor from a temp agency, consider combating the shortage in the labor market by outsourcing aspects of your manufacturing to a contract packager.
For many companies, outsourcing packaging or assembly labor is an effective way to reduce operational costs.. When you’re outsourcing, you’re operating with a smaller employee workforce, resulting in lower overhead costs.
The right partner goes beyond immediate dollars and cents. More and more businesses are turning to outsourced labor as a strategic move to access expertise, improve internal service, free up space, maximize resources, and adapt to evolving consumer needs.
At Keller Packaging, in Napoleon, Ohio, we have 70 full-time professionals with extensive experience in contract packaging, including manual assembly and display building. National and local brands alike trust our staff to help when needed to assembly, finalize, process and ship orders on time and keep customers happy.
