CF-25 Box Former Reduces Labor Costs in the Mid-West

Case Study

Case Former CF-25


CF-25 Fully Automatic, Case Former/Erector

Case Presented: 

We were invited by an authorized Little David® distributor Ambrose Packagine to visit a wine and spirits distributor located in the Kansas City area. The customer was interested in increasing production efficiencies with a long-term goal of reducing labor expenses.

The wine and spirits distributor was utilizing temporary workers to work 3-4 hours each shift erecting and bottom-taping between 550 to 600 boxes. This cost a total of 18-24 man hours each shift.

This warehouse’s Operations Manager was working at another one of the company’s locations in 2012 when the company purchased a Little David® CF-25. Because the Manager was familiar with the benefits of the CF-25 and how it improved their operation, he requested through his management that they purchase a CF-25 for this warehouse as well.


The wine and spirits distributors’ management realized that investing in this box former would provide two major benefits:

  • 100% reduction in labor savings with the elimination of the temporary night shift team
  • Consistent sealing of cases
