- The new manufacturing process allows for the production of 12,000 bottles daily in two complete operating shifts.
- In addition, the availability of sufficient stock to meet demand has allowed for the signing of agreements with the foremost retailers and distribution groups.
Seville, 29th of April, 2015. Seville-based Puerto de Indias Premium Gin have recently implemented a new bottling system that optimises the original manufacturing process and allows for the production of up to 12,000 bottles daily in two full operating shifts. With the implementation of this automated procedure the gin production facility, located in the town of Carmona, has multiplied its production volume tenfold.
The new organisation has given Puerto de Indias the production capacity to secure agreements and signings with the foremost national retailers and distribution groups, who demand strict logistics deadlines. In the words of the manager of Karmo Spirit, Basilio Rodriguez, “this has been an essential step as regards being able to meet the volume of orders that come in daily, both on a national and international level, and we are now prepared to respond to the current high level of demand as we have sufficient stock to meet this demand”.
Increased workforce and added value
The new machinery also makes it possible to create and extend operating shifts, a fact that has led to the creation of more jobs. In the words of the company’s representative, “despite the fact that we have automated the bottling system, the increase in production volume means we will continually require additional personnel to carry out tasks such as palletising and de-palletising, packaging and supplying the production chain”.
On another note, the tasks of controlling and finalising the finished product, where labelling and capping play an essential role, have also been optimised by the technological precision of the new system, thereby allowing for time savings and increased attention to quality control, one of the most important factors in the production process.
