Flour Mills

Quality assurance and efficiency with end-to-end visibility and control

Apliconn helps Kepenos Mills digitally transform its business models by merging cutting-edge technologies with manufacturing and warehouse operations.

The need


Being one of the top flour mills in Greece with 70 years of history, Kepenos Mills remains an industry leader by constantly investing in cutting edge technology and innovative solutions for management and execution.

Kepenos Mills annually processes a hundred thousand tonnes of wheat in its state-of-the-art facility and produces a variety of flour products for the food industry. From its headquarters and production plant in southern Greece as well as other distribution centres in central, western and northern Greece, Kepenos Mills serves daily hundreds of points all over the country.

The constantly increasing production and distribution volumes, forced the company to seek a solution that addresses the need for accurate inventory management, lot traceability and fast error-free shipments, while at the same time assuring product safety and interoperability with existing systems.

Solution

Alpiconn designed and implemented an end-to-end solution that monitors and automates processes across the entire product life-cycle, from raw material intake to customer shipments. Beyond top-quality software and cutting-edge hardware, Alpiconn focused greatly on the cultural change within the company and the adaptation of modern digital thinking that established Kepenos Mills as a pioneer in smart manufacturing within the food industry.
