2019 Manufacturing Innovation Award: Royal Cup Coffee and Tea
The complex, multiphase project cuts labor in half and doubles production capacity with bridges that create one interconnected facility instead of three. This new linear flow streamlines the product’s journey from raw material to final package. The new campus allows Royal Cup to move raw coffee beans directly from the receiving dock to the cleaner and into storage mechanically. Plus, automated scanning inputs new inventory into Royal Cup’s new SCADA system seamlessly. Royal Cup’s Senior Vice President of Operations Kevin Boughner provides an overview of this award-winning project.
