Sidel Services are being rolled out globally throughout 2014

Sidel Services has cut PepsiCo energy by 19%, thanks to feedback from an annual survey.

The company hired former Tetra Pak chief, Dag Gronevik, as vice president of Services, to reorganise its services operations.

The survey responses reveal the realities of the current business environment, with issues such as increasing regulation, economic volatility and rising raw material prices,” said Gronevik.

Sidel claims its business unit has seen a 122% production increase at Brazil-based Spaipa and Tropic, achieved 95% efficiency on two Sidel SBO blowers and energy savings of 35%.

It also said Erikli in Turkey, part of Nestlé Waters, achieved a 36% weight reduction in their preform bottlenecks, Coca-Cola Romania received critical parts within 23 hours and PepsiCo India received emergency parts in 40 hours.

The business unit is split into six teams: maintenance, line improvement, training, spare parts and logistics, line conversions and moulds, and packaging.

It launched a warehouse management system with 48-hour emergency delivery and a ticketing system to contact Sidel experts.

The teams will focus on: product quality, efficiency, flexibility, cost optimisation and brand support.
