Krones is currently supporting the Duisburg, Germany-based family enterprise on its path to Industry 4.0 – more specifically, restructuring the software landscape in its production operations. Those operations have grown considerably since the company was founded back in 1905. Today, RheinfelsQuellen H. Hövelmann fills more than 210,000 bottles of mineral water and soft drinks per hour. And as the company’s production output has grown, so, too, have its workforce, IT landscape, and sheer volume of operating data.
RheinfelsQuellen has now made it its mission to optimize the digital aspect, preferably with the help of a partner who can draw from a comprehensive range of solutions, a one-stop-shop. Our IT solutions and strong background in the beverage industry put us at the top of their list.
We began by examining the beverage operation’s requirements. Over the course of several months – and numerous workshops, visits to reference sites, and project meetings – we were able to precisely define the specific needs, formulate solutions, and establish ourselves as the right partner for the transformation.
