Royal Fassin B.V. is a Dutch company based in ‘s-Heerenberg near the German border. The ‘royal’ signature was awarded on behalf of the Queen of the Netherlands and it represents a strong sense of long-term vision, confidence, reliability, social responsibility, and engagement. Royalty will therefore always resonate in this proud and independent family business. Royal Fassin is specialized in the production of extruded fruit gum and liquorice products (like the famous Katja™ liquorice). Modern techniques, dedicated people and the highest quality standards make that happen!

An essential tool for Continuous Improvement

The reason Royal Fassin wanted to start measuring their OEE is because they see it as an essential tool for Continuous Improvement.

We have selected the OEE Toolkit of FullFact because it is a powerful analytics tool, which constantly monitors the performance of the lines to get real-time data available for everyone involved

Says Jan Tjoelker, process optimizer within Royal Fassin.

Furthermore, we noticed a difference in output between the several shifts and got valuable information about the mean time between repairsThis inside information provided by OEE Toolkit will help us to realise the first improvements for the shop floor on a very short notice”
