The company has 85 employees managing everything from the tea production to packaging, all here in Australia.
Nerada has a network of businesses in Queensland who are also integral in ensuring Australia’s freshest tea travels the short journey from crop to cup.
Nerada approached ABC Adhesives for help to overcome issues with nozzle blockage on their gluing unit. An analysis revealed that the blockage was caused as a result of ageing technology.
Nerada implemented recommendations made by ABC Adhesives which included clean running adhesive. As a result, Nerada achieved a 30% reduction in adhesive usage from 3.2 grams to 2.2 grams.
This process saved up to 40% per annum on adhesive costs and a major reduction in servicing fees due to less wear and tear on the gluing unit.
We are ABC Adhesives and we specialise in
commercial glues, tapes and adhesives.
