Founded more than 100 years ago, Spomlek Dairy Cooperative is one of Poland's largest manufacturers of hard cheese, specializing in premium cheese and manufacturing nearly 21,000 tons of Dutch and Swiss-type cheese per year. The cooperative also processes more than 300 million liters of cow's milk annually. Spomlek has four production branches located in Radzyń Podlaski, Parczew, Młynary (Elbląg Branch), and Chojnice. Radamer. The company is the first dairy in Poland to manufacture mature, long-ripened cheese and is one of the few dairies to use traditional methods to produce the "dry rind" cheese.
Spomlek was looking to optimize its manufacturing operations by increasing packaging line efficiency, accurately scheduling employees’ shifts, and monitoring its manufacturing equipment in real-time to better predict potential downtime.
Spomlek leveraged GE Digital’s Manufacturing Solutions to implement a flexible, scalable, and custom MES system across all lines at its main plant, Radzyń Podlaski.
