Ocean Spray is an agricultural cooperative owned by more than 700 cranberry farmers in the United States, Canada and Chile.  Founded in 1930, Ocean Spray is now one of the world’s leading producers of cranberry juices and dried cranberries. 

 

Ocean Spray was looking for a solution for their 600,000 sq ft processing facility that could help them visualize and analyze performance metrics and could be easily maintained and managed. 

 

Bryan Graham, Senior Control Engineer at Ocean Spray, has been working closely with AutomaTech for over 10 years to make sure they are applying best practices for their facility with their GE Digital solution. 

The GE product suite has been very important to our plant, basically giving us the tools to customize and build the application to what our business needs are. It offers a lot of flexibility, a lot of opportunity for recording and communicating data and information.

GE Digital’s iFIX HMI/SCADA system monitors their operation, so they can make better business decisions from the data and provides them with opportunities for continuous improvement.  The team is consistently querying their Proficy Historian industrial data management system, looking at trends and building relationships between variables.  The software helps get the right information to the right people in their facility. 

I would definitely recommend GE platforms to other users. It’s been a very reliable platform for us. The software can definitely make a difference in manufacturing, your efficiency, your effectiveness, in whatever product you’re making.
