New growth potential enabled at major packaging company now CodeIT Enterprise is in place.
"For many years, our revenue per employee has been amongst our industry’s highest, even if you compare internationally. Now our latest investment will help us keep this position and let us go for growth”, says a very pleased CEO at Norway’s oldest folding boxboard manufacturer.
By investing in a CodeIT Enterprise Digital Control System, the leading Norwegian packaging manufacturer “Trondhjems Eskefabrikk” (TE) has now acquired a new digital infrastructure that embraces all areas of its business, from raw materials to finished delivery. Implementing the system was the company’s biggest development project last year and it needed investments in both time and money, but TE’s CEO Tore Brekke Olsen has no doubt about its profitability. "We see new gains every day, in terms of higher quality at all stages in production, better information flow and more accurate reports and figures for cost-accounting," he notes.
The essence of the project is that CodeIT has set up a customized real-time system for orders and time registration, as well as having supplied applications and a central database for production follow-up and inventory management. In parallel with this, CodeIT fitted PLC-controlled sensors in all the production equipment and integrated these sensors directly with the central database. Now that everything is in place, a whole new “nerve system” has been created in the company.
