Budweiser Budvar Brewery Case Study

Client: Budweiser
Location: Various
Sector: Food and Beverage
Products Used: Various

Budweiser Budvar brewing has its roots dating back to the 13th Century, and whilst the four key ingredients used for making the beer remain unchanged for over 125 years, the production and processing has undergone significantly changes to cater for the global demand. 

For the last 15 years they have chosen to partner with EFAFLEX as their high-speed door manufacturer and recently installed 32 doors as part of their on-going expansion.

The brewery produce more than 2,000 bottles of beverage per minute, and over 440 pallet manoeuvres recorded every hour. Part of the brewing process relies on the beer being kept at a certain temperature, whilst the smooth flow of filled bottles need to be transported around the facility, loaded and despatched.

Track a single bottle of beer through its journey and you can quickly appreciate the risk of unforeseen downtimes both in terms of financial costs and perished product.

Budweiser commissioned 32 high-speed doors as part of their expansion at the production facility. EFAFLEX is their product of choice as they have come to trust the door’s reliability and durability, opening up to 3 metres per second to help ensure the temperatures remain stable in the production and storage areas.
