Mondi Forests is split into two operating divisions, North and South, and supplies timber to Mondi Paper Mills. 

Knox D’Arcy carried out a 36-week Programme across both divisions designed to increase productivity in the silviculture and harvesting operation. 

Results were excellent with a 26% improvement in productivity generated by decreasing team sizes and better control and flexing of the labour resources according to the seasonal requirements of the business. 

Savings were 35% above the agreed targeted levels generating a 4:1 return on investment and ensuring that the Programme paid for itself within the first 3 months following the installation of the changes.
