A highly regarded French dairy company, manufacturing specialty cheese products, was seeking to grow its business in the North American market. The brand’s core products on the shelf are recognized as superior quality, specialty cheese spreads. Their goal was to grow these core products as well as develop and introduce several new products into the market.
The company’s desire was to have their entire range of spreadable products with varying package types and special features all packaged on the same machine with quick changeover, while maintaining an Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) of greater than 95%. With previous filling and sealing equipment, the company had experienced poor machine efficiencies due to significant maintenance downtime, long changeovers, and lack of machine performance. With their high-quality brand, desire for flexibility and reliability, they knew they wanted a Waldner DOSOMAT filler and sealer.
