Coca-Cola uses Lapp cables

ÖLFLEX® ROBUST in European bottling plants

Coca-Cola is one of the world’s best-known brands. Every day, 1.6 billion of its products are consumed, in more than 200 countries. Of course, such prestigious standing also means great responsibility, and the company’s bottling operation therefore observes the strictest hygiene and quality standards. This explains why a few weeks ago the Coca Cola Europe’s Electrical & Automation Manager, decided that in future the company’s 40 or so bottling plants in Scandinavia, the UK, France, the Benelux countries and Germany will only use ÖLFLEX® ROBUST power and control cables.

Says Darren Clark of LAPP UK: “Coca-Cola requires very high standards of hygiene at all its plants. Regular cleaning and maintenance procedures put enormous strains on components, and so the company was eager to finally find a totally durable and reliable cable.”

LAPP’s ÖLFLEX® ROBUST cable fitted the bill perfectly, with its high levels of mechanical and chemical resistance. It is suitable for a wide variety of applications, in such diverse areas as machine tools, medical technology, laundries, car washes, sewage treatment plants and of course the food and drink industry. Essentially, it is suited to any environment where cables are exposed to oils, fats, waxes or detergents. This weatherproof cable is also halogen-free, with a high dielectric strength and low operating capacitance
