Irving engages Rockwell Automation at new plant
May 10, 2018 – Ground has been broken on a new state-of-the-art plant in Macon, Ga. at which multiple production lines will produce household and store brand paper and personal care products from Irving Consumer Products.
The first of the production lines will have Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 7000 and and PowerFlex 755T integrated power systems from Rockwell Automation.
The integrated system will help control speed, torque, direction and power to the motors that run the machines on the production line, as well as aggregate data to manage energy usage.
“The new, fully-integrated motor control system will help to support our company’s focus on managing and maximizing our energy usage, reducing environmental impacts and achieving our vision of having an Irving consumer product in every North American household by 2020," David Dennis, vice-president of manufacturing, Irving Consumer Products, said. "We are confident that working with Rockwell Automation will help to make this and future projects a success."
“We take pride in our long-standing business relationship with Irving Consumer Products and look forward to helping them with this connected enterprise implementation for their new plant,” Mike Laszkiewicz, vice-president and general manager, power control business, Rockwell Automation, said.
The scope of the project also includes low- and medium-voltage motors as well as a complete portfolio of integral services and support throughout the duration of the project, which is expected to be complete in 2019.
Canadian-based Irving Consumer Products is one of North America's leading manufacturers of household paper and baby diaper products.
