The Gallo Glass plant in Modesto California is one of world’s largest bottle plants. Fourteen glass lines make more than 100 types of bottles in sizes and shapes ranging from 187 ml single serving bottles to 4 liter jugs. The plant is the sole supplier to the E & J Gallo Winery and produces over 2 million bottles a day.
Rockwood Pigments is a primary manufacturer and processor of liquid, powder, and granulated forms of iron-oxide color pigments, natural and synthetic inorganic pigments, and automated pigment-handling systems used by manufacturers of coatings, colorants, concrete products, plastics, rubber, paper, vinyl, cosmetics, pet food, ink, toner, and other industrial uses.
When glass-container company Saint-Gobain Containers (formerly Ball-Foster Glass Container) implemented a company-wide quality program across its 18 plants, the company standardized its quality data management with NWA Quality Analyst software from Northwest Analytical, Inc.
"Our quality has always been very good, but to be the best in this marketplace, we wanted even higher levels of efficiency, productivity and quality," says Mike Puhl, corporate senior process engineer. "Standardizing on NWA QA has created efficiencies and easy comparisons."
