One of the biggest FMCG companies worldwide was seeking a solution to boost their production capacity and at the same time avoid unnecessary downtime in manufacturing. The main challenge was to maximize efficiency while being limited to the existing manufacturing site. However, we can anticipate one thing – we have developed a solution that left the ground.
The challenge of increased production
Our client is a third-party manufacturer of one of the largest companies for confectionery, food, and snacks like biscuits and chocolate in the world. The multinational corporation approached us directly regarding a major challenge they faced with one of their production sites in India. In this production facility, the company produces an iconic biscuit with several layers. Due to the growing demand, the company needed to find a suitable solution to improve its production capacity. One important condition was to minimize downtime at all costs.
A project of this importance poses a substantial challenge and therefore requires precise planning to systematically exclude errors of any kind. Since the existing facility was already fully occupied and moving to a new facility was not an option either, we were faced with a major task.
In complex projects like this, we work very closely together with our customers. This ensures the best possible outcome and complete transparency along the process.
