Kruger Products has built a greenfield manufacturing facility in Sherbrooke, Québec, to further propel its market position on premium tissue & towel products in North America. Using real-time data, the project will recreate the plant’s entire supply chain virtually, adding an integrated set of predictive and prescriptive AI capabilities. This will allow the improvement of key operations from supply through processing to client shipping, in order to drive revenues, efficiency and agility.
