Taken over by the Theo Müller Group in 1994, Sachsenmilch Leppersdorf GmbH has since been gradually transformed into one of the largest and most advanced dairies in Europe. It now employs roughly 2,500 people at this production facility alone. The milk delivered to the site – approximately 1.8 billion kg annually – is used to manufacture an array of products within a complex, partially automated plant. Throughout five production sectors, milk is processed to create basic and fresh products, cheese and powder. On board from the start: ProLeiT AG. The business headquartered in the southern German town of Herzogenaurach was, at the time of the takeover by the Müller Group, commissioned to automate processes for the new systems at the facility.
