John Bolender, president, Niagara Sheets LLC, says the results met his initial expectations, “The data so far already demonstrates a nearly 15 percent reduction in kilowatts consumption compared to last year.”

Before implementing WPS Global’s audit and plan, the Niagara Sheets’ executive team – president, vice president of operations and comptroller – were tracking energy consumption and usage according to monthly KWH per MSF of production. With the solution in place, the team will receive reports from WPS Global making it effortless to see energy consumption and cost savings every month. According to Bolender, the executive team anticipates to see an ongoing positive impact on the facility’s bottom line.

WPS Global offers energy management for corrugated, paperboard and packaging facilities.
