Enhancing Warehouse Safety with Laserglow Safety Solutions at Ardagh Metal Packaging’s Valparaiso Facility

Ardagh Metal Packaging – Valparaiso, CL

Ardagh​​ Group is a global supplier of sustainable, infinitely recyclable metal and glass packaging for brand owners around the world. The consistent pursuit of market-leading innovation, quality and customer service, backed by investment in our people and processes, underpins everything we do. 

Ardagh Metal Packaging’s Valparaiso facility recognized the need for a robust floor organizational system to mitigate accidents during pedestrian interactions with mobile equipment. Their traditional approach, relying on painted and adhesive floor markings with safety signage, proved to be an inefficient and costly solution over time. These markings wore out quickly and were easily obscured by constant foot traffic and machinery movement, compromising the safety of their employees and visitors.

In pursuit of heightened safety and process efficiency, Ardagh Metal Packaging organized a Kaizen event involving plant management and EHS personnel. After careful evaluation, Laserglow’s cutting-edge high-visibility projection technology emerged as the ultimate solution. The dynamic projection system offered a superior alternative, ensuring long-term and sustainable protection for individuals within the Valparaiso facility while remaining budget-friendly and cost-effective.

Thanks to Laserglow’s products and customer service, AMP Valparaiso has taken a giant step forward in ensuring the safety of our employees, vendors and visitors. This goes beyond accident prevention – we want to eliminate near-misses as well so that we can ensure everyone gets home safe every day
