Jamestown Container Corporation

Client Success Story


Jamestown Container is a leading package solutions company.

Business Challenge

The Jamestown Container Company competes in an industry mired in overcapacity, high fixed costs, intense price competition and spiraling margin erosion. Jamestown was looking for a solution that would create unique value for their customers through shorter lead times and higher customer service levels. Unparalleled speed, quality and service were core to their strategy. It was critical for Jamestown Container that their solution deliver on their offer to the market while driving internal efficiency and improved working capital utilization.

Bruce Janowsky, CEO

“Replenishment+® allowed us to leverage short lead times to the market and create a huge market advantage. Operating profit tripled.”

 

The Solution

The implementation of Demand Driven MRP concepts and Replenishment+® software has been a cornerstone of their success. With these tools they were able to leverage their own unique Replenishment market solution against their competitors “traditional inventory” approach. The result has been a large increase in market share and substantial improvements in operating margin. Their Replenishment solution has enabled them to achieve best in class customer service levels with immediate stock while relieving the burden of inventory investment for both their customers and themselves.
