An Interview with "JP", from the great state of Texas, USA (continued)

Norland - How has Norland impacted your business?

JP –“Norland has made it easier to do business.”

Norland -What’s the biggest benefit of working with Norland's Freedom 4500 Blow Molder?

JP –“Number one, the quality of bottle and ease of operation. Those are the two biggest items
off the top of my head. If you’re in my business, that is all you are wanting. I call it idiot proof and really it is. Once you get it set up and once you get it dialed in, it’s pretty much just forget about it. It’s going to run, you may have a preform hang-up or something, but that would be on any machine and probably tenfold. It is just very, very easy to operate. It is user friendly.”

Norland- Has the equipment saved you money?

JP –“Yes.”

Norland -How much do you calculate you have saved with the blow molder?

JP –“We are probably saving around 2 cents per bottle.”

Norland -And how many bottles are you producing per day?

JP –“We average about 32,000 bottles per day. The savings are real, that’s why we bought it.”
