Coffee machine manufacturer Schaerer has completed a multi-level expansion of its coffee machine production site in Zuchwil, Switzerland, which has more than doubled production capacity at the site.
According to a statement from Schaerer, the expansion of the facility comes in response to increased demand for the company’s machines, particularly in the US and Asia, which led to a “double-digit order increase in comparison to the previous year”.
Schaerer states that the completion of the final phase has now doubled the number of machines produced at the site when compared to 2018, and the company claims that the upgraded facility enables a higher level of quality assurance, customised solutions as well as an improved working environment for the employees.
Quality assurance for the new lines was supported by ‘quality experts’, and the company has implemented ‘clear and stable’ processes which enable error detection and quick handling. Each machine is put into operation and tested on-site to ensure they meet expected quality standards.
Jörg Schwartze, CEO of Schaerer said: “On the new line, we can produce more than 100 Schaerer Coffee Art Plus machines per workday. It used to be 30 or 35.
“We aspire to not only support our customers with our coffee expertise and technology, but also to offer them ‘the’ solution for their respective business model.
“Individualisation and holistic concepts are therefore gaining in importance. Thanks to the new system, we can react even quicker and, above all, produce greater individualised quantities in a more efficient manner.”
