5S ROLL OUT HORDIJK PACKAGING INCLUDING WHITEPAPER

5S IN THE FOOD PACKAGING INDUSTRY

Despite COVID-19 we’ve conducted a Gemba walk at Hordijk Packaging, a leading producer of plastic packaging for the fresh food sector in Zaandam. Hordijk maintains high standards for product safety and adds the 5S method for workplace organization to its already significant quality benchmarks

CONSECUTIVE 2-DAY 5S ROLL OUT

With a 2-day series of 5S roll outs, 5S Company trained and supported groups of production staff during the implementation of the 5S activities. The safety risk areas with high traffic movements became explicitly visible on the spaghetti diagram, which immediately increased the safety awareness of the employees. This was the reflected in the floor line plan. 

A successful 5S implementation starts with a good scan of the area and design of the 5S red label area. The 5S App, from scan to sustain, on the tablet makes it easy for all employees to participate and thus successfully introduce 5S at their own workplace. 

Hordijk Packaging in Zaandam is investing in the 5S App to effectively support the securing phase (the S of sustain) and to secure the achieved results in a durable and sustainable way.  

Hordijk Verpakkingen

Hordijk Packaging is one of the largest thermoform producers in Europe. Hordijk supplies packaging mainly intended for the fresh food industry. Production takes place locally at the newly built production facility in Zaandam. Here Hordijk designs its own foils before extruding the foils from raw materials.
