TAWI’s ergonomic equipment refined Qualiphar’s processes
Satisfied and healthy employees are the source of our success
Manual handling of boxes belongs to the past

Your company is only as strong as its weakest link
“Satisfied and healthy employees prefer to come to work and are more productive.” Jan-Karl Verlinden, Supply Chain Manager at Qualiphar
Like many other manufacturers, Qualiphar faced a problem where they often had to handle heavy boxes in their production. The boxes weigh up to 20 kg and therefore require substantial physical effort from the employees.
Only the strongest employees could lift the heavy boxes, which often resulted in pain and injury among employees. Qualiphar recognised this problem and wanted to find a solution that would enable any employee, regardless of their physical strength, to move the boxes without overexerting themself.
The solution to a common challenge
Qualiphar found Logitrans, the local TAWI supplier in Belgium, and a vacuum lift system was recommended. After implementing two overhead vacuum lift systems in their facilities, all employees can lift the boxes with minimal effort. Employees can now handle the boxes more quickly and without compromising their physical health.
Knowing that their employees actively looked for a solution to a challenge in their daily work has positively impacted Qualiphar employees’ overall satisfaction. Managers have noticed how this has translated into higher productivity. Instead of having to take a brief break every half hour to give the body some rest, employees can now work more consistently.
