Lighthouse Systems welcomes Intersnack as new user of the Shopfloor-Online MES suite

Leading savoury snacks manufacturer selects Lighthouse

 
 

One of the leading manufacturers of savoury snacks in Europe has selected Lighthouse manufacturing execution system (MES) to fully digitise 30 of its manufacturing sites in Europe.

Lighthouse Systems is pleased to announce that Intersnack, the holding company behind more than 20 well-known brands including Butterkist, KP, McCoys, funny-frisch, Kelly’s, Pom-BEAR, Chio & ültje, is one of the leading manufacturers of savoury snacks in Europe and has selected the Shopfloor-Online Manufacturing Execution Systems Suite to equip 30 of its manufacturing sites.

Shopfloor-Online will replace all legacy and manual systems used at plant level within Intersnack.  The MES will provide a standardised model that will ensure data consistency and real-time visibility across all plant operations: production, inventory, quality and maintenance.

The MES will deliver a fully digitised shop floor to support Intersnack’s future growth plans:

  • A single system to support continuous improvement programmes
  • Real-time reporting at plant and company level
  • Better stock reliability and control
  • Improved agility and performance

In addition to the breadth of functionality, Intersnack required a solution that could address the variety of processes (Batch, Semi-Continuous) and production models (Make-to-Stock and Make-to-Order), that characterise its operations. Intersnack was also looking for a flexible MES suite that can be configured with minimum vendor input.

"We were impressed by how well Lighthouse Systems understood the Intersnack vision for operational excellence and were able to translate that vision into a real solution with its Shopfloor-Online software suite,” commented Christoph Laufen, Head of Center of Excellence MES.

 

“As a new user of Shopfloor-Online, Intersnack is joining other well-known customers in the Food & Beverage vertical. We are delighted to welcome them into the Lighthouse family and look forward to building a long-term partnership,” commented Tim Barber, Company Director.

The project will be starting this month with developing a central template for rollout.
