Nissan Motoring Manufacturing Ltd (NMUK)
Nissan Motoring Manufacturing Ltd (NMUK) is a multi-vehicle and engine manufacturing facility incorporating a battery production facility for electric vehicles. NMUK is part of the global alliance between Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi Motors and operates an Alliance International Logistics Network (A-ILN) shipping parts to oversea plants.
In 2011, the company experienced issues with a supplier in Japan not fulfilling their packaging requirements for rolls of film on time which affected production. At this time NMUK engaged with Taylor Packaging to source a packaging solution.
As a leading provider of intelligent and innovative bespoke packaging solutions, Taylor Packaging provided the packaging solution required by NMUK and continues to hold and monitor stock levels which has eliminated any lead time issues.
Over the years the relationship has strengthened, and Taylor Packaging supplies NMUK a variety of products from its general packaging range. Taylor Packaging’s team of experts regularly visit the Nissan site to ensure they meet NMUK’s business needs and they also work closely with Nissan’s engineers to review existing pack methods. This has led to cost savings and improved efficiencies for Nissan’s engineers.
Taylor Packaging’s personalised, flexible and responsive service has enabled them to help Nissan implement change in the types of packaging solutions they utilise, as well as assisting the team with sourcing new materials and providing technical advice on the preservation of metals when needed.
“Taylor Packaging has been a key part in the development and quality of our packaging within the Nissan export facility. The team strive to maintain a high level of service with exceptional customer support and always undertake the task requested with the customer at heart. The products offered by Taylor Packaging are always performance driven with a commitment to deliver the best possible option for each individual project across our global network. We trust the products and expertise of the Taylor Packaging team to help deliver 100% satisfaction on each and every venture!”
