Danone's Ghana subsidiary, Fan Milk, the West African specialist in ice creams and fruit drinks, trusted Boccard to increase the production capacity of its ice cream plant by setting up a new yoghurt production line.
Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success*
This was a very big project (8,400 hours of engineering work, 7,300 hours of automation, 4,000 hours of prefabrication in the workshop, 5,300 hours for start-up and production monitoring, 2,000 hours of supervision in the field, and 21,000 hours of on-site installation work). So five business units were hastily deployed: Boccard Process Vessels manufactured the tanks, Boccard Polska took charge of shipping the equipment, and Boccard Côte d’Ivoire performed installation on site with help from Boccard Russia which sent out a field technician.
The Food & Beverage Business Unit, for its part, coordinated all the work and controlled overall project management. A team spirit that was applauded by Patrick Kers, Danone Project Manager in Africa.
