3D Container and Packaging Philippines Corp is a small industry establishment in Cabuyao, Laguna. It was established in 2014 with only three employees and second hand machineries at a 432 sq. meter lot. Due to the perseverance and the help of RTWPB and NWPC, 3D got their first accreditation in ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. With this achievement, coupled with innovation, sincerity and credibility, 3D maintained its unbeatable reputation as a solid business partner to some of the country’s leading manufacturing firms such as: DENSO Phils., JECO Auto parts, ISUZU Philippines and JUNTEC Corporation to name a few.
The enterprise’s aim is to be the best provider of innovative packaging solutions, to gain customer loyalty by providing their requirements and exceeding expectations and to continuously improve their systems and processes.
In order to achieve this, 3D made innovations over the years to improve their services. First, they upgraded their machines from 2-color to Multi-Color Print, which increased output from 3500 to 4500 per day. They installed a FIFO Label Improvement which lessened the time for finding and identifying materials. They also improved the process for their GC07 Model that tripled their daily output as well as their system for accounting and inventory.
They upgraded their communication and alarm systems and reduced the waiting time for employees to assemble by 5-10 minutes and received information on time. Their samples are now done in a shorter time due to their investment in a partition slotter, thus giving them time to create more designs.
They also saved on purchasing cushion foams for their die blades by reusing them and used their trim boards for other items, to save space in their inventory. There is now work balance for their employees due to a change in production schedule approach, making the employees happier and more motivated.
Due to the profits from these improvements, 3D increase their total productivity from 1.03 in 2016 to 1.04 in 2018 and increased their clients from 158 in 2016 to 182 in 2018. On the part of the workers, they gained skills and knowledge, improved their working condition, and increased in number. They also added 14 new products from 2016 to 2018.
