Microbiological Risk Assessment (MRA)

Quality and Safety for our consumers is Nelson’s top priority. This applies to our entire portfolio, from laundry and home care to automotive and chemical products. We apply internationally recognized Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) to ensure quality and safety. GMP covers all aspects of manufacturing, including standard operating procedures, people management and training, equipment maintenance, and handling of materials. Then we continually audit our systems to ensure full compliance. Our recent annual MRA that was successfully completed with one of our customer’s own microbiologist is a reflection of our unwavering commitment to producing a quality product. There were zero critical issues found and we will address all audit findings to drive continuous improvement in the four components of human, method, equipment/processes, and materials. This is the type of meticulous attention to detail that you can expect when you partner with Nelson Packaging Co..

We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.- Winston Churchill

We recently broke ground on our campus to add 90,000 square feet of additional warehouse space to better serve our growing customer base. The additional space signals more than a growth spurt. We believe it’s a sign of our company’s maturity, vision and commitment, not to mention the positive results of a truly dedicated workforce. We are thrilled to build, knowing that Churchill was correct in stating how our buildings shape who we are and what we do. We know that our new shape will enable us to become an even more profitable supply chain partner for our customers.Construction 2

New Technology created at Nelson Packaging Co.

Have you ever ordered a chicken sandwich at a restaurant; only to find a hamburger packed in your bag instead? Our Quality Department has worked very hard with our Technical Services Experts to drive out this kind of mis-pack, mis-label and mis-code (3M) mistakes on our packing lines. We employ a combination of manual checks in conjunction with increasingly automated solutions. Our most recent automated solution enables us to provide our customer with best-in-class 3M protection. We have developed a 2D circular footprint readable camera system. This system can even handle 2D codes that are either square or rectangular in shape so that it is capable to read codes on shrink sleeves both pre and post shrink. Our team was able to redefine and elevate the global 3M standard while minimizing changeover time and resources needed on-line; thus providing increased quality results and value to our customer.

How I Spent My Summer Vacation…

internssmallIt’s been a rapid paced eleven weeks since our energetic engineering interns showed up from the University of Delaware.  Justin Kolwyck and Sihan Liu were relatively new to the contract manufacturing world but they were eager to learn and quickly acclimated to the fast paced customer focused environment. They were involved in focused improvement work on packaging lines that included cappers and shrink sleeving equipment. Not only did their attention to detail result in improved 5S compliance but they developed job aids that reduced changeover times and improved operating efficiency.  As well as seeing their work ethic shine, we learned that these guys were great at water skiing, walleye fishing, playing basketball and doing quality assurance work on incoming materials. Everyone at Nelson will miss their can-do attitude and we know that they will do well in their careers; as they will bring great character and technical competence to any company that they join.  Good luck to Justin and Sihan as they move on to the next chapters as students as well as future professionals.
