Material Systems, Inc. is your one source provider for design, build and program management of custom returnable packaging for the Southeastern automotive manufacturing market. Our complete 360 degree view of the supply chain gives us unique insight to what makes for a successful packaging program.

Material Systems, Inc. broad based experience with different program launches gives us unique insight to what solutions might work best for your supply chain. We are open to many approaches, but having “been there, done that” gives us some advantages on what materials might be best suited for a certain application, or what measurements for a certain pack might be better than another, or what density might be the best option for your application.

Still not sure we are the best option for your needs?
Please take a look at some of our work.

We strive to manufacture a long lasting durable pack that will not require constant care, maintenance or create safety hazards for team members using the solution.

On site and off site container repair

Material handling damage to packaging can have serious consequences to your supply chain. Much like a quality defect in a part going into production, a damaged container can be the weak link in the chain. Material Systems, Inc. offers on site container repair and off site container repair. We have worked with many organizations on systems that can identify damaged containers so they can be quarantined for repair. Material Systems, Inc. also has a specialized preventive maintenance program where each container will be inspected on either a cycle count or a timing increment to ensure the container fleet is in order. If you would like to discuss our different repair program options, please contact us today.

Container Asset Managment

What version is the container or pack? When did we do that? Who added what? It didn’t fit so we adjusted it when? Who approved that change? When did it go into service? How many do we have? What are the dimensions of the container? How many parts does it hold? Does it ship broken down? Can it be stacked? The list of questions goes on and on doesn’t it? In cooperation with an IBM partner, Material Systems, Inc. has developed a Container Asset Management Database, hosted as a SaaS “software as a service” that can be accessed anywhere with internet access that is utilized to answer the questions like the ones listed above. If you are at the beginning of a program or years into a program, Material Systems, Inc. can help you get a better handle on your container assets.
