Labor-saving Magnetic Tape Strips for Retail Displays

Customer Challenge

  • Large national retail customer was using part-time labor to hand apply 2-4 magnetic strips to the back of large retail graphic displays. Not only was this costly from a labor standpoint, the output of displays was also limited due to material costs and lack of control.
    • Utilized up to 20 part time employees
    • Inadequate quality and quantity control of hand-applied magnetic tape
    • Costly to use converted goods (hand application)
    • Slow output and inefficiency
