KHS invests €20 million in site modernisation
The KHS Group, a provider of filling and packaging systems for the beverage industry, has invested €20 million in modernising its Dortmund, Germany. Work began in 2015 on an approximately 4,300-m2 production shop and another has been fully renovated.
The last construction machines will leave the site soon and plant manager Dr Joachim Konrad notes the organisation has worked to further digitalise and automate infrastructure and processes in production.
Work has included merging the container and pack conveyors as well as optimisation of the Sheet Metal Manufacturing Department, incorporating new technology such as a faster, more efficient fibre laser, a combined punching/laser machine and a fully networked sheet metal warehouse.
