March 2018 Professional Development Meeting.

 

The speaker for the evening will be Rebecca Nichols CPIM.  Supply Chain Manager for Intertape Polymer Group

Rebecca's  Presentation will focus on  "Adapting To Market Demand: How The Rise of Ecommerce Changed the Life of a Small-Town Tape Plant"

 

Prior to 2013, IPG’s water-activated tape division (based in Menasha) was on the decline.  Demand for the high-quality, high-cost carton-sealing tape was nearly extinct, and other major players had already decided to leave the market.  IPG didn’t have much advantage to update the antiquated equipment or the outdated manufacturing processes.  Then one day, a major online retailer decided to give WAT a try, and the small, quiet plant in Menasha soon found itself with more business than it could handle.  This is the story of how that plant reinvented itself to meet market demand and become a leader in the ecommerce packaging world.
