New packaging not hard to handle
07 March 2013
Tork Easy Handling is an ergonomically-designed packaging system that improves ergonomics, boosts efficiency, saves time and prevents stress injuries. It will also help to cut costs for FM companies since the packaging reduces time spent by staff on transporting and opening packs of products.
"Cleaners spend a significant part of the day refilling paper towel, napkin and toilet paper holders," says Kristian Grennfelt, packaging development and industrial design centre manager for Tork. "Our solution helps to ease the strain on cleaning personnel's backs and also saves them time." New handles allow the cleaner to carry two boxes at a time. The containers are also easy to open.
"Labour represents 70% of a cleaning company's costs," says Charlotte Branwhite, SCA product and segment manager. "If cleaners save time on carrying and disposing of product boxes, they will have more time to focus on other cleaning tasks."
