TimBar’s vendor partner, BHS, recently recognized outstanding performance by the operators of the BHS 98” corrugator located at TimBar Packaging & Display’s Oxford Division in New Oxford, Pennsylvania. On Tuesday, June 8 representatives from BHS and TimBar’s executive management team were present at the facility to present the BHS Platinum Performer award to the crews on all three shifts. The crews broke a record by running the machine for full work week with 98% uptime and an average speed of 801 feet per minute.
Pat Ciambruschini, BHS Vice President, Sales & Marketing commented, “The Platinum Performer award is given in recognition of outstanding production results when compared with similar machines worldwide. Many facilities have great shifts or great days, but to achieve these results over an entire week, on a 14 year old corrugator, is a world class achievement”. He added, “These results would not be possible without the complete dedication of the operators, plant leadership and the BHS M2P maintenance personnel. Congratulations to everyone involved, you should be extremely proud of your accomplishments”.
Bill Thom, TimBar Senior Vice President, Operations stated, “It’s just equipment; you make it go. It’s obvious you work together as safely and efficiently as possible and ensure you keep to the preventative maintenance schedule.” He added, “The performance is even more impressive when you understand the order sizes being run for conversion. You’ve done an outstanding job and we greatly appreciate it as well as the recognition from BHS.”
