In January 2016, Greycon implemented their world renowned system at Mel Paper (Thessaloniki, Greece), one of the largest regional manufacturers of recycled board in the food and general packaging industry. On Monday (August 8) Greycon and Mel Paper released information including quotes from management on how it has benefited the company since start up.

Mel Paper is the only manufacturer of recycled carton board in Greece. Mel produces more than 100,000 tons of coated printing carton every year. These products are distributed to demanding markets across Western Europe, Africa, and Asia.

"The implementation was carried out to the highest standard, it was completed on time and the communication throughout the process was flawless. Greycon has changed the way we work, we have never been more efficient!" commented Eleni Parisi, project manager at MEL Paper.

Mel Paper is an environmentally conscientious company and one of the key aspects of the implementation was to reduce the amount of waste produced. Mel Paper required a comprehensive solution that eliminates time consuming manual data entry and can increase the production output.
