The bottled water products maker Spritzer has allocated MEUR 13.8 to expand its warehousing facilities and production capacity. This includes a plan to build an automated warehouse in Taiping, Perak, and new production lines at its Shah Alam plant. Both expansion projects are scheduled for completion in 2019.
When completed, the project will increase their warehouse capacity by up to 30% and increase the number of their production lines from 15 to 17. By streamlining the processes Spritzer will benefit from higher throughput rate due to improved operational efficiency.
“The automated warehouse will be seamlessly connected to the production line, allowing Spritzer to grow their business in the era of Industrie 4.0,” says Dr. Christian Baur, COO Swisslog Group & CEO Swisslog Logistics Automation.
