Biscuits and cookies are universally popular and the global market outlook is promising. Global trends like health and well-being on the one hand and indulgence (to make oneself feel better) on the other hand force biscuit manufacturers to shorter innovation cycles and as a result, increased process complexity. Efficient material handling solutions and intelligent automation are becoming prerequisites for success, as illustrated in the case of a leading Dutch cookie manufacturer.
To maintain its competitiveness and lay the foundation for future growth, this cookie manufacturer has, over the course of years, made signi cant investments in intelligent material handling solutions. The Dutch automation company Technisch Buro West- Brabant (TBWB) was selected as primary automation partner many years ago and since then has delivered a number of turnkey projects based on its customer’s cookie handling needs. TBWB is a renowned player in the Netherlands and Germany for automation of manufacturing plants and logistics centers with over 400 successfully implemented projects.
