New plant uses unique edge architecture to run at the pace of modern business
With demand for hand sanitizer more than doubling across the US, and continuing annual growth of more than 20% expected in coming years, 2020 presented the cleaning industry with a big financial opportunity. Emerald 66 Enterprises (E66) mobilized resources to meet this need, setting up shop in an empty denim processing plant in Seminole, Oklahoma, U.S.A.
In only three months, E66 had automated manufacturing lines producing up to 1 million bottles of hand sanitizer a week in a cGMP-compliant facility, and they continue to expand their core process capabilities at a rapid clip.
“When we say we do stuff quick,” says E66 chief of operations, Robert Bodnar, “we’re talking days, not weeks or months.”
In this blog series, we’ll follow E66’s growth, examining the technologies and techniques they and long-time OptoPartner Northeast Automation Company (NACI) used to achieve competitive advantage in a challenging market environment.
