coin bags (without locks) occupy a large part
of the Rifkin manufacturing area. The popular
Long Zipper Bag and Trans-Sac,
reusable mailing envelope, are currently being
made by teams of workers known as modular production
groups. This system increases Rifkin's ability
to accommodate "rush" delivery requests and hold
to projected delivery dates.
the varied steps required to make the Rifkin
Safety Sac utilized basic sewing machines. Over
the years, the procedure has changed greatly,
being refined and improved by the introduction
of specially designed equipment.
Rifkin Safety Sacs are also being manufactured by
teams. When a Safety Sac team receives the embroidered
or imprinted pieces of material, they move them
from one operation to another, sewing the lock
cover, sewing the zipper, sewing the side and
bottom seams, and installing the Arcolock.
the varied products are completed, they are
examined, bundled, labeled and sent to the Shipping
Department. There the order is packed in shipping
containers and sent on its way to the customer.
