As consumers evolve their needs at a rapid pace it continuously challenges manufacturers to keep pace. An OEE solution gives the plant floor the ability to understand how much of the manufacturing time is truly effective. This can be used as a benchmark for an organization and the ability to adjust quickly as it changes. An example in the consumer industry is the variety of SKUs manufacturers must deal with. As changeovers get more common OEE can take a significant dip. The ability to understand this is one way to leverage all the data across your plant floor.
Gray was selected to design and build a bourbon distillery and dried grain facility in Lebanon, KY, for Diageo, the world’s largest spirits producer. Leveraging its deep industry experience and resources, the Gray family of brands integrated complete turnkey solutions for the project.
Gray partnered with Petsource by Scoular—a 127-year-old company with a focus on global distribution of grain, feed ingredients, and food ingredients—on the company’s first manufacturing venture into pet food. The customer selected Gray to provide fully integrated services for a greenfield facility in Seward, Nebraska, that produces high quality freeze-dried pet food ingredients.
