Paper360 - November/December 2017 - 50

Sonoco's customers span a wide range and
serve many different markets, which offers
Sonoco suppliers plenty of opportunity.
"There's a lot we can do for our customers,
and I'm going to tell you what we need from
you to help," he said.
Greg Munoz shared insight into supply
management-again, focusing on supplier
opportunity. He noted that Sonoco is strategically transforming its invoicing and payables
process, and outlined what that meant for
its vendors and supplier partners. The company is also changing its transport logistics
to optimize shipment of goods across its
supply chain.
Finally, Taylor Lane, director of global
SPS, outlined the company's automation and
robotics strategy. Questions from meeting
attendees were answered on every aspect of
the presentations.
MILL MANAGERS TAKE THE STAGE
The Mill Managers' Roundtable provided
a lively forum for information sharing. Tim
Davis, division vice president/GM paper
and adhesives US/Canada, moderated a
panel of six Sonoco mill managers. Though
the discussion was wide-ranging, attendees

returned to two critical topics: safety and
workforce development.
Panelists emphasized that safety was of
paramount importance to Sonoco. "We've
always spent a lot of time teaching employees
to be safe on their job. Now we also spend time
teaching people how to assess risk," noted
Matthew McCracken, paper division technical
manager. "We get a lot of help from suppliers
sharing what they've seen and learned."
Sonoco puts tremendous effort into
attraction and retention of talented young
workers-in leadership, engineering, and
hourly roles. The issue is also very important to the supplier community. The Sonoco
panelists outlined the company's strategies
and successes.
The panel concluded with two questions
top-of-mind for everyone in the room: first,
"How does Sonoco view the ideal supplier?"
Second, Davis asked suppliers "How can we
help you?" Both questions were addressed
with comments from attendees and panelists. Steve Glenn, regional manufacturing
manager, summed things up: "We rely on our
vendors and partners... working with us every
day, driving innovation, driving optimization,
driving productivity."
