Arcus AS, a supplier and producer of wines and spirits based in Gjelleråsen, Norway, recently turned to Hünenberg, Switzerland-based Sidel when it relocated from its traditional production and distribution facility in the center of Oslo to a new, purpose-built plant 16 kilometers outside the capital. The former site was old, inflexible and expensive. Therefore, the company — like those in many other European regions — decided it was time to move production out of the city. They decided to migrate to Gjelleråsen, where the filling hall alone would have to accommodate seven production lines with an annual capacity of more than 21 million liters. The new premises, however, are just more than half the size of the original site, so the new production facility would need an intelligent and well-adapted layout to ensure optimum efficiency and productivity.
