Case Paper Co. Inc., with roots tracing back to the mid-1930s, has established its name as one of the largest privately held distributors and custom converters of paper and paperboard in the country. Founded by Irv Schaffer and brothers Oscar and David Kosh, this company has endured challenges such as WWII and now boasts seven prime locations across the U.S. From its early days in a 19th-century stable in New York City to its current prominence, Case Paper Co. remains committed to delivering quality, custom paper solutions. Today, the company stands as a major supplier to the commercial printing and packaging sectors, ensuring clients receive precisely what they need, exactly when they need it.
The Chicago facility of Case Paper Co. is a sprawling 23,000 sq. ft. space designed to process rolled paper. With walls of non-painted, dark cinder block, it captures the industrial nature of its operations while holding true to its rich history.
Given an upcoming visit from VIP/C-suite personnel, Case Paper Co. sought to revamp their interior. The chief aim was to address the dimly lit ambiance and breathe new life into the work environment. Furthermore, they wanted to add a touch of their brand essence with an accent stripe featuring their signature branding color.
Decision Driver and Timing
The primary motivation behind this makeover was the dark and dim workspace, which the management believed needed uplifting. The desire to make a lasting impression on the VIP/C-suite visitors further propelled this decision.
Scope of Work
- Protective encapsulation of the work area using plastic sheeting to ensure safety and minimal disruption.
- Brightening of the walls with high-quality interior paint.
- Incorporation of a distinctive accent stripe in line with the brand's color palette.
- Comprehensive interior painting and line striping to infuse a sense of brand identity and boost morale.
No Disruption in Operations
Despite the scale of the work, operations at the facility were never halted. The strategic use of plastic enclosures ensured work zones were segregated, enabling simultaneous painting and business activities.
Emphasis on Branding
The introduction of the accent stripe wasn’t just aesthetic; it was symbolic. This stripe, resonating with Case Paper Co.'s branding color, infused a sense of identity and pride within the workspace.
Expert Handling and Precision
Given the facility's nature, care was taken to avoid any damage or mishandling. Precision was paramount, and the final outcome reflected meticulous planning and execution.
All activities strictly adhered to safety protocols, ensuring the well-being of both the workers and the facility's staff. Special attention was paid to avoid any mishaps or accidents during the painting process.
The transformation was well-received, with the facility now radiating a brighter, more vibrant aesthetic. Not only did the updated interiors enhance the aesthetics, but they also fostered a positive work environment, echoing Case Paper Co.’s commitment to excellence and evolution.
