Paper Products
Planned. Tracked. Automated. Analysed. Optimised. Understood.

LYNQ is reinventing manufacturing execution system (MES) software for paper and paper product manufacturers running job shop, batch production or production lines.

The UK’s paper and paper products industry is worth an estimated £3 billion and employs more than 8,500 people.

It’s impossible to name a single sector that doesn’t rely in some way on paper. The same can be said for wider society – this versatile material has always has a place. It’s for this reason that, despite the rapid rise of digital technologies, the UK paper and paper and paper products manufacturing industry is worth an estimated £3 billion.

In total, around 230 British businesses are operating in the sector at present, employing more than 8,500 people. All of these companies must continue to overcome a number of unique challenges in order to achieve and maintain success.

Logistical efficiency

Paper products must be distributed and transported across vast areas in a time- and cost-efficient way. From loading to driving, everything has to be as smooth as possible.

Ethical pressures

Manufacturers must address concerns around deforestation and other environmental impacts, reinforcing sustainable values to clients, regulators and the wider public.

High production costs

High-speed production lines are energy intensive – keeping running costs down has to be a priority if companies are to keep profit margins significant.

Increasing competition

With digital alternatives growing quickly in popularity, the paper sector has become saturated, with competition intensifying among manufacturers. Companies must be able to set themselves apart.

Achieving delivery, quality and financial goals relies on the effectiveness of your resources. Getting the most from your employees and machines goes beyond scheduling. It requires intelligent insight and complete visibility of where time is being lost, using technology that can automate data collection and optimise workflow, to seamlessly connect planning and production activities.
