In order to reliably handle the different discounters’ orders, we have to ensure that our production is as efficient as possible,” explains Alexander Pascher, the group’s managing director. For this reason, the company relies on state-of-the-art machinery and a high level of automation at each of its four bottling operations.
Altmühltaler has often put its trust in the expertise of Krones. And for good reason: The combination of machinery knowledge, practical experience, and IT expertise is the ideal basis for reliably connecting machine data and production systems. And Krones will be demonstrating precisely this expertise from 2023 onward at the group’s Breuna plant. But that wasn’t the only order the Altmühltaler Group has placed with Krones in the last three years.
