For a few years now, we’ve been wanting to purchase a folding/bagging machine, always doing everything by hand. This can be tedious and time consuming when the task involves thousands of shirts. We have been going back and forth with Nedco, the manufacturer of such a machine, for the last two years or so. Finally, a few weeks ago they approached us with a proposition to put in a demo machine for 90 days and allow us to try it out before we buy. We agreed! And they would be bringing the machine down sometime in September.
Well… We ran into a bit of a problem last week. We had 75,000 pieces coming down the pipeline within the next three weeks that had to be printed, folded and bagged… So I gave Nedco a challenge! If they could get the machine up here within 5 days, I would buy a new machine. Not only did they arrive a day early, but the owner (Jack) himself came to help install and train us on the demo unit!
This type of service is something that all companies should take notice of and emulate within their own infrastructure.
Here is a short video of how it works… Pretty neat!
Stay tuned for a video of the real deal. It can really do work!
