THE COMPANY AND THE PROJECT
From its headquarters in Siegsdorf, Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH oers mineral water and medicinal spring water along with numerous soft drinks under the brands Adelholzener and Active O2. The company belongs to the Covenant of the Merciful Sisters of St. Vincent de Paul. After making investments designed to preserve long-term jobs, the religious order uses the revenue from the company to finance its social projects. Among other things, the Merciful Sisters also run hospitals and nursing homes.
Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH has invested in a state-of-the-art, digitalised value chain. Alongside a new Krones filling line, a fully-automated high-bay warehouse has been built here with a height of 42 m and 23,700 pallet storage spaces. In the process, special attention was paid to sustainability and ensuring that the new warehouse blends in as unobtrusively as possible into the surrounding Alpine landscape. Thanks to the full integration of all individual technical elements and the SitePilot Software Suite, Adelholzener has been provided with an overall solution that enables the highest degree of availability and performance. The entire project was implemented by System Logistics GmbH as the general contractor.
