Electronics giant Siemens, and leading glass manufacturer and contract bottler Encirc, have entered into a memorandum of undertanding which will see the companies becoming partners in strategic digitalisation.

This partnership is designed to spearhead the deployment of advanced digital technologies and services across Encirc’s operations. The company manufactures container glass for the food and drink industry at its two sites in Northern Ireland and England, and offers a multi-faceted logistics offering as well as sustainable supply chain options.

The technology deal with Siemens comes into effect immediately, and will be based on three core themes: a commitment from Siemens‘ Digital Factory and Process businesses to supply innovation and new products across Encirc’s sites; a unique energy partnership designed to significantly reduce emissions; and Siemens‘ commitment to deliver a wholesale digital transformation project.

Adrian Curry, Managing Director of Encirc, said: “We are looking forward to developing this strategic partnership with Siemens, which will enhance our reputation as leaders in technology, innovation and sustainable manufacturing. It represents Encirc entering a new phase in terms of digitalisation and future technologies. Further reducing our energy use and emissions will also build on our commitment to provide customers with the most environmentally friendly route to market possible.” 

Siemens UK and Ireland CEO, Juergen Maier, added: “This is a landmark technology partnership which is about two central challenges – industrial digitalisation and reducing carbon emissions. We’re delighted to be partnering with Encirc who understand this deal is a platform to showcase industrial digitalisation in the UK glass sector. We’re looking forward to joining Encirc on this important journey over the coming years.”
