Modern communication technologies are helping us in realising our projects faster and better. Clients benefit from the fast pace digital communication possibilities. On the other hand they expect more from the end result as well in terms of delivery time and quality. And they should.

For example, time differences across the world are not a hindering factor anymore. Instead of our team flying halfway across the globe to discuss designs and progress, we all work in the cloud. With digital sketches and blue prints, and skype meetings we can all share whatever, wherever, whenever.

“When I stop working in the evening, my colleagues in Asia are just getting started. By the time I arrive at the office in the morning, substantial progress has been made.”

The latest technology that we implemented in a recently opened facility in Africa, is immediately expected to be implemented in the newest facility in Asia as well. Real time information exchange is a big factor in increased efficiency and faster project delivery throughout the years. Steutel: “Producers of beverages face some difficult challenges in emerging markets. Compliance with international standards on production and food safety needs to be secured, as the reputation of the brand and the commercial viability on a global scale are at stake.

We understand that these facilities have to accommodate growth and be flexible enough to adapt to any future shifts in production. In addition to that, our client’s commercial ambitions to always deliver at ‘right time to market’ also introduce strong focus points for designing and building the plant ‘first time right’.”

This way we help our client to stay ahead of the competition even from before the start. Their investments are high, and the sooner our clients can be up and running and having their product on the market, the sooner they can start to earn back those substantial investments.

Royal HaskoningDHV has worked together with almost all main players in the international food and beverage sector. Our in depth knowledge of various production processes enables us to deliver tailor-made solutions every time.
