Krones and digitalization are a perfect match. Krones has long been more than a machinery and plant manufacturer in the traditional sense. Since it was founded back in 1951, the family business has continually evolved and frequently realigned its focus. That’s because any company wishing to stay on course for long-term success in our complex, fast-paced world must promptly readjust its structures, strategies and goals to ever-changing requirements and opportunities. The digital era has brought forth a number of highly promising technologies that help make better sense of complex production processes, optimise them appropriately and raise them to a new level of efficiency.
Digital innovation is the name of the game
Krones realised the potential inherent in digitalization for the beverage and liquid-food industries early on. Quite some time ago, various specialist departments and subsidiaries started developing digital solutions that rendered systems and lines fit for a networked world. A goodly portion of independence and flexibility backed up by agile methodology helped the group make its way towards digital transformation and expand and consolidate its position as a pioneer in cutting-edge technology.
