Like most companies, Wasatch Container took steps early on to mitigate the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on its employees and customers. But they didn’t stop there, and company president Jerry Frisch continues his efforts to keep his customers and team engaged and safe. JERRY FRISCH, PRESIDENT OF WASATCH CONTAINER As the leader of Wasatch Container, I felt it was very important to promote communication with our employees to reduce stress. I write weekly letters to explain our procedures and why we’re doing them, letting employees know that we were doing our best to keep everyone safe and that they have a secure future. During these uncertain times, we continue to show our appreciation to our workers. We have passed out gift cards to grocery stores and gas stations. We put together boxes full of fruit and items for backyard barbecues. We even had a hair stylist come in to give much needed haircuts to anyone who wanted one.It’s unclear when COVID-19 will end and how a post-pandemic world will look. These are unprecedented times for all of us. However, I do know that as leaders in business and the community, we must stay focused, be optimistic and play the long game. We must do whatever we can for the safety and physical and mental health of our most valuable assets—those who work with us.

56% of a customers' re-purchasing decision is influenced by the product's packaging
Inside/outside printing is becoming a niche market for Wasatch Container. The sheet plant began printing on both sides of the sheet about three years ago, running jobs in two passes. The company’s new 6.18 MiniPro from BW Papersystems allows it to run the same jobs in one pass. The four-color flexo folder-gluer is configured for three color outside and one-color inside.Ryan Frisch, Wasatch Container Sales Manager, says Wasatch purchased the machine for two reasons. “One, we needed to invest in some modern technology, and this machine makes very good square brown boxes, It does quick setups and runs at high speeds, which is critical when you’re making RSCs. The other reason is our customers want packaging that they can connect with. They want the unboxing experience. One in five consumers have watched an unboxing video. Also 56% of customers’ re-purchasing decisions are influenced by their interactions with the packaging. That’s all growing mainly through the e-commerce world. And retail is growing as well.” Read the full article here - https://www.bwpapersystems.com/news-trade-shows/news/post/news-room/2020/01/22/thinking-outside-(and-inside!)-the-box-part-2
