Schoeller Werk receives PRS Green Label
Schoeller Werk has been participating in PRS's pallet pooling program for several years. We have now been awarded a Green Label by the supplier for this.
The pallet pooling program is committed to the recycling of sustainably produced pallets. The aim is to reduce CO2 emissions and packaging waste throughout the supply chain as much as possible. Damaged pallets are repaired where possible or alternatively used as biomass for drying and heat treatment of new pallets. The wood used in the production of the pallets is FSC or PEFC certified and therefore meets the highest ecological standards. The system results in the preservation of approximately 400,000 trees per year. As a company that thinks sustainably, we are happy to continue supporting this initiative and are delighted to be awarded the Green Label.

Terminals in production ensure transparency
Schoeller Werk is becoming even more digital and has acquired 23 info terminals, which have been positioned in the production halls for general use. The terminals provide employees with access to the intranet and homepage of Schoeller Werk. This means that production employees are always informed about the latest developments at Schoeller Werk without an assigned workstation or Computer.
The terminals also offer the possibility of presenting our administrative documents, such as safety instructions, work instructions, process instructions and test instructions, much more efficiently and effectively in digital form in the future.
As part of the Schoeller digitization strategy, a team from the Production and IT & Business Process Management divisions was formed to research the optimum solution for modern information dissemination in Hellenthal. In addition to a fast processor and sufficient main memory, a robust and visually appealing housing was chosen for the terminals. Special attention was also paid to the size of the touch screen and LAN and WLAN connectivity.
All 23 info terminals are already installed. The terminals will be introduced from week 38 in several stages by the production Managers.

Schoeller Werk connected to the fibre-optic Network
Big data, Internet of Things or cloud computing: the increasing connectivity and digitisation of business processes over and beyond a company's own individual boundaries with corresponding growth in broadband demand requires an efficient, modern, scalable connection to the outside world. We have therefore decided to invest in a forward-looking solution. Following several months for carrying out the necessary construction work and obtaining approval from the authorities and from Deutsche Bahn, we have now achieved our objective: we are one of the first industrial companies in the region to have a state-of-the-art, synchronous connection to the fibre-optic network with broadband ratings of up to several gigabit for both uploads and downloads.
By 2020, more than 50 billion devices will be connected worldwide in the Internet of Things. There will be far more integrative collaboration between customers, suppliers and producers, with the emergence of new business models and competitive advantages. Modern high-speed internet access is therefore obviously very important for Schoeller Werk. By changing over to the fibre-optic system, we have created the necessary basis for implementing our further planning in the context of digitisation and Industry 4.0. We are now even better able to integrate cloud computing and big data in our business processes. With immediate effect, we now have access to high-speed data transfer with a scalable broadband rating and high availability that grows with the requirements. And so our communication infrastructure has been made ready for tomorrow's world.
