Tapping the Future at New Belgium Brewing

By evolving and effectively maintaining best practices with Wonderware MES Performance software allows for the expansion this system across multiple areas of New Belgium, as well as at its new plant currently under construction in Asheville, N.C.

“By increasing our operations efficiency, we now can free up time to get back to focusing on our corporate culture,” Herrick said. “When our operations were running so quickly, we had to eliminate some of our popular employee extra-curricular activities, such as our annual volleyball tournament. Today as we gain momentum in production, our people see the benefits and we are now very much in control of production processes.”

New Belgium is now meeting capacity, surpassing production of 200,000 cases a week, and having time left at the end of the day for “fun.” Taking advantage of the full capabilities of its existing resources at the plant enabled the executive management team to delay funding of additional capital investments, reduce overhead, and make commitments to new things.

This includes focusing on building the second New Belgium Brewery in North Carolina.
