Achievements of this nature are impossible without a collaborative plant team-working culture where employees are involved, engaged, motivated and feel valued to deliver such performance. Despite 2020 being a difficult year for us all, Warrenpoint has seen records tumble in a range of performance measures and the plant continues to challenge itself to improve further.
Every employee contributes to and cares about the plants results and its future prosperity. It is this commitment and persistence to improve that adds the value to the business that we currently enjoy.
The plant continues to prove that with its commitment, its values and the right investments it is capable of being a world class, low cost benchmark for Saica Pack.
