GDM’s Business Made Easy philosophy: a Hello Bello™ case study

In today's fast-paced business world, companies need to keep up with the ever-evolving technological landscape to stay competitive. At GDM, we have been providing cutting-edge turnkey solutions for businesses to succeed for over 30 years. This article examines our Business Made Easy approach, using the case study of Hello Bello™ as an example. Hello Bello™, a US-based company co-founded by actors Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, has seen tremendous success in the baby disposable hygiene industry, thanks to our comprehensive industrial solutions. We take a look at how our Business Made Easy concept has helped the start-up thrive in the digital age and how it can benefit other businesses looking to streamline their operations.

Hello Bello™: an overview

Hello Bello™ was founded in 2018 with the goal of making premium baby products accessible to everyone. It is a brand that lives by its promises. It believes that every child deserves the best, which is why it is committed to creating premium products for all, not just those who can afford them. In addition, its desire to create safe and effective products for babies that are better for the planet is evident in its promise of “Happier Babies, Happier Planet". But its brand promises don't stop there. Hello Bello understands that parenting is hard and near impossible to do alone. That's why it has made it its "Parent Pledge" to join parents in the messiest, stinkiest and most unmissable joys of parenthood. It promises to be a part of parents’ communities, supporting them in its own small way for life.

To achieve its goals, Hello Bello™ partnered with us to integrate turnkey solutions into a dismissed disposable hygiene products manufacturing plant in Waco, Texas. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, we were able to kick off the project in 2020 and execute it quickly. We installed four diaper machines, including three baby open diaper machines and one baby pant machine with advanced technology in under a year, making it possible for Hello Bello™ to bring production in-house.
We are the only provider of turnkey services in the industry and were able to efficiently manage the project and contractors with a lean crew. Hello Bello's™ commitment to affordability and performance was essentially realized through core design, which played a significant role in the product's effectiveness.

GDM’s expertise in project management and execution

Our commitment to excellence is reflected in our approach to project management, which involves close collaboration with clients as a 360-degree consultancy partner who ensures that every aspect of the project is carefully planned and executed. This means that they can delegate a lot to us while still retaining control over operations. Our Business Made Easy philosophy is all about simplifying clients' businesses and making things easier for them and this approach has proven to be highly effective in the Industry 4.0 landscape, too.

By leveraging our in-depth expertise in project management, we can help clients start production quickly and efficiently, ultimately leading to greater success and profitability in the long run. This was certainly the case with Hello Bello™, where our project management team worked closely with the company to ensure the installation of the lines, which required careful planning and execution. This successful partnership is a prime example of how our Business Made Easy philosophy can benefit companies across various segments. We can adapt our solutions to meet your specific wants and needs, regardless of your level of expertise or resources.

Putting Hello Bello™ first: comprehensive services and support

Predictability is among the main requirements while in production. The partnership between GDM and Hello Bello™ is characterized by a commitment to collaboration and a shared vision. Comprehensive services and support were instrumental in Hello Bello™ achieving its goals. We recognized that our Customer Service was key to Hello Bello's™ success and ensured that we offered top-notch services throughout the project.
In addition, our PerforMate data mining service was a game-changer in terms of machine performance control. The service is built into each machine and provides real-time insights into machine performance, which can be accessed from anywhere, anytime, on any device. This service allowed the company to monitor production line's performance and quickly identify any issues that arose.

Our contracted maintenance services also provided the assurance that production lines were always in top condition. This partnership covered services, parts, and online support to help troubleshoot and diagnose any issues. The availability of parts and services, coupled with the expertise of our technicians in the US, provided Hello Bello™ with the confidence that it could operate its production line at maximum efficiency without any unexpected downtime.

Sustainability and core design: GDM's contribution to Hello Bello's™ mission of premium for all

The incorporation of best-in-class technologies, such as the core-forming section, which reduces energy consumption by 30%, is a testament to our sustainable approach to design.

Additionally, we abide by the concept of zero-waste, which is an industry-standard approach that seeks to eliminate waste during production and the design of the product shape, allowing us to minimize our carbon footprint and make a positive impact on the environment and community. Our efforts towards sustainability aligned with Hello Bello's™ mission of creating premium quality products accessible to all while maintaining sustainability targets.
By providing turnkey solutions, comprehensive services, and expert support, we enabled Hello Bello™ to achieve its vision of premium quality at low prices while reducing emissions.

Best-in-class technologies enhance Hello Bello’s™ product performance and energy efficiency
