Kotronis Packaging, which specialises in the production of 100% recyclable plastic food packaging, has designed and is currently implementing KIMA 4.0 (Kotronis Interconnection of Manufacturing Assets), a project directly connected with the ‘wave’ of the 4th Industrial Revolution.
In a constant course of digital transformation, the company uses special equipment to collect real-time data from the manufacturing process and perform appropriate analyses, utilizing the data it gathers in decision-making and central planning.
More specifically, the KIMA 4.0 project interconnects manufacturing machines with a central data management and storage system. As a result, executives have access to reliable and transparent data, which enables them to know both the real current state of the manufacturing process and historical data. Another important element is the implementation of a software platform in collaboration with the company suppliers, which further enhances a more efficient production planning by using cutting-edge data analysis technologies.
The President and CEO of Kotronis Packaging, Avgoustinos Kotronis, notes that ‘prompt customer service has been our main priority since the establishment of our company. By adopting and utilizing the tools offered by the 4th Industrial Revolution, we reinforce our ability to quickly respond to changes in product demand, keeping stock levels at all stages of the supply chain to a minimum. This flexibility is achieved by enhancing intelligence in the manufacturing process and by the immediate and transparent exchange of information, both internally and at the level of external partners. The result is a drastic reduction in the total time required for the products to be made available to the final consumer.’
Kotronis Packaging was founded by Konstantinos Kotronis in 1971 and is headquartered in Malamata, Fokida. The company specialises in the manufacture of 100% recyclable plastic containers and lids suitable for food packaging. Its production, which is distributed both in the markets of Greece and abroad, exceeds 400,000,000 items on an annual basis.
The KIMA 4.0 project is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the Financial Mechanisms of the European Economic Area (EEA) for the period 2014-2021, under the Programme ‘Business Innovation in Greece’.
