The benefit in making the switch: eliminating the need for a three-piece box that was produced on a slit line and required three spot welders. Williams Brothers General Manager Shaun Dooner says that the elimination of the spot welding operation allowed the company to redeploy three experienced employees to other areas within the company, such as painting/finishing and forming/bending.

“By eliminating the need to hire three new full-time employees for the other operations,” says Dooner, “we saved the company more than $93,000 in combined salaries.” MF
