How We’ve Become The Go-To Cosmetics Packaging Distributor

Our Customers' Success Stories With Our Advanced Solutions

Global Manufacturer Implements Automated Carton Handling System

A global cosmetic manufacturer reached out to Hughes Enterprises, needing help with end-of-line automation in their New Jersey facility. They needed to enhance their manual process for case handling and label application of their cosmetics line while reducing labor costs, shipping errors and product damage.

After our packaging consultants studied their existing packaging and shipping process, we worked with Sealed Air to customize an Ultipack system for them. This automated carton handling system was designed to carry out case erecting, void fill dunnage application and lid closure. Most importantly, it was tested and refined to provide all necessary product protections.

Our customized case handling and label application equipment helped our client reach optimum product throughput while reducing labor costs, product errors and damage. Ultimately, it enabled our client to impress their end-users with improved, secure yet easy-open packaging.

Cosmetic Company Uses Custom Label Printer And Applicator

A cosmetic manufacturing company asked us for help with their faulty barcode numbers and labels. Their existing equipment affixed labels at the side of product cartons to be used for assigning customer orders later on. However, they often encountered duplicate barcode numbers and misread labels.

Our team looked through their existing conditions and devised a solution without changing their scanning procedure. We implemented a customized printer/applicator system comprising a label printer, a Wexxar case erector integrated 18 months prior, a software program printing the barcode and a metering belt conveyor.

This custom solution helped eliminate duplicate and misread labels without altering their existing process. It also enabled them to reduce the size of labels they printed, consequently bringing down their packaging expenses.
