Geralda, founded in 1995, is the biggest manufacturer of candles in Lithuania. Soy wax, paraffin wax, and palm oil are used to make more than 50 different candle types.
Candle variants of various materials are offered in glass-, plastic-, and tin containers. Production occurs in small batches, following seasonal fluctuations in sales.
Small batches are handled on production lines with different throughput capacitites, so that processing time of manufacturing operations for identical products differs from production line to production line. Hence, rules are implemented that determine which product may be produced on which line. The main raw material supply of wax and glass containers needs to be planned for one to two months in ahead in time.
