Austria – With the opening of a new assembly facility at its headquarters in Ansfelden, Austrian plastics recycling technology supplier EREMA has switched to a production process geared towards future customer requirements. According to the company, clients will benefit through reduced lead times, increased delivery reliability and higher quality standards.
‘The expansion of our production capacities was a logical next step due to the increased demand for our technology,’ explains the firm’s ceo Manfred Hackl. ‘In doing so, we made a conscious decision to optimise the production processes at the same time.’
Each workplace at EREMA has access to a modern fabrication infrastructure including, for example, scissor lifts. Co-ordination of the necessary material and information processes is based on precisely-timed planning of the individual workplaces. This is said to ensure a smooth production process with upstream and downstream departments.
This is the first step in an extensive evaluation of optimisation opportunities along the entire production chain at EREMA, according to Hackl. ‘Our goal is to increase our competitiveness even further on an international scale,’ he stresses.
