Nature’s Kick Honeystix is an Oregon-based company that manufactures Honeystix— hermetically-sealed plastic drinking straws filled with all-natural honey. Although today the company is enjoying its sweet success, the manufacturing process was not always without its challenges. To prevent wear from affecting one of its machines, operators were applying a non-stick fiber tape to the parts. But the high heat of the machinery was causing the tape to melt off—halting the production process. The company turned to General Magnaplate for a solution.
