Breakthru Beverage Group combined operations of three facilities into one much more efficient facility in Cicero, IL. They did this with the help of Westfalia Technologies Inc. Westfalia automated Breakthru Beverage Illinois by using their automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) as well as a high rate conveyor, combiner and sortation system. They were able to turn three facilities into one due to the automation utilizing more space than conventional systems can. Even with less space, the company is more time and cost efficient, creating room for them to grow and become more successful.
