“Increasing production figures with reduced energy consumption!” To achieve this goal, Forbo Siegling GmbH had a project team made up of its own and GREAN employees analyse energy flows and identify the causes of waste. To do this, the central energy consumers were identified and the corresponding energy flows recorded, analysed and visualised.

GREAN not only brings fresh ideas for production improvement. You can also implement them with a high level of expertise. And best of all: you involve our employees in the change process.

Dr. Neele Neelen (Director Global Project Management)

Using these and “muda-walks” through the production as a fundament, proposals (with low investment) were developed to change processes and improve technology in order to reduce energy requirements. In addition, the employees were sensitized to the topic of energy efficiency through appropriate training, so that an increased energy awareness could be incorporated into the daily business operations.

In detail, the following steps were taken:

  • Recording of energy consumption

  • Creation of an energy balance to derive the main energy consumers

  • Development of proposals for organisation and technology to reduce energy consumption

  • Employee training

  • Establishment of a management system based on DIN ISO 50001

Factory planning

New construction on a greenfield site or expansion of existing buildings - we offer you comprehensive advice and sophisticated planning services for a well conceived factory. For us, this includes basic master and factory structure planning as well as support for your project right through to implementation. Whether new or reorganisation planning - we are experts in factory planning.

Process optimization

In many factories, high inventories, long travel, search or lead times are a major cost factor, which at the same time massively reduces production efficiency. This is what we do: Our customers benefit from well-founded, systematic and analytical consulting. In this way, we work with you to increase the efficiency of your production.

Resource efficiency

High and ever increasing material and energy costs are becoming an efficiency problem in many factories. We systematically investigate where potential is lying dormant and then identify meaningful and economical measures for improvement. In this way we increase the material and energy efficiency in your factory - and at the same time reduce your energy bill.
