Surviving in the uber-competitive corrugated business means sheet feeders must think out-of-the-box when it comes to reducing costs.

“Pennies can make the difference between making or losing a sale — we need to explore every opportunity to reduce our operating expenditures,” says John Bolender, president, Niagara Sheets LLC.

Picture1It is this increasingly competitive marketplace and the growing interest in sustainability that has encouraged Bolender to keep an open mind when it comes to new cost-cutting ideas. So when he heard about the significant savings other sheet and corrugated plants had earned with a customized energy-saving solution, he was all ears.

Niagara Sheets partnered with WPS Global to implement the plan tailored specifically for the Tonawanda NY plant. Just 60 days after WPS Global installed its comprehensive energy solution, Niagara Sheets realized over $10,000 in savings.

Bolender says the results to date have met his initial expectations.

“The data so far already demonstrates a nearly 15 percent reduction in kilowatts consumption compared to last year.”

The Guarantee makes it a Low-Risk Decision

WPS Global offers a 10 percent reduction guarantee – an insurance policy for savings – with each plan. William Behrmann, president of WPS Global, describes corrugating equipment as big consumers of energy.  The reduction guarantee along with projected savings and success stories help Behrmann articulate the generous opportunity for cutting a plant’s operating costs.

“For financial and sustainability reasons, decision-makers want to know if and how we can reduce the amount of energy and make it more efficient,” says Behrmann.
