Congratulations to our Machine 10 crew for their fantastic performance this Monday as they smashed the previous production record by 39,000 boxes, an impressive performance on a SECO 37” 924 Flexo folder gluer. The outstanding crew was led by floor leader Ryan Cook and consists of:

  • Jessica Noller, Operator
  • Lora Akridge, Prefeeder
  • Maria Nopal, Load Former
  • Mark Houtman, Material Handler

Topp Corrugated Products also recognized this team and our company for this world-class achievement. “This is a great example of the culture Brent and his leadership team has built,” said Topp, “and just another example that you don’t have to spend $3,500,000 million or more to get great performance.”

“This team is the perfect example of a crew focused on the same goal. What a fantastic performance from this team and their leader Ryan Cook.”

Coastal Container owner Brent Patterson
