In order to transport palletized beverage cartons to the central warehouses and distribution centers of the customers, the German market leader for sparkling wine, Rotkäppchen-Mumm Sektkellereien GmbH, Freyburg (Unstrut), decided to equip two of its production locations with the BEUMER stretch hood M high-capacity packaging systems. These systems package the palletized beverage cartons quickly, flexibly and sustainably with a stretch hood film. In Eltville on the Rhine (Hesse), BEUMER has adapted the packaging system so that the film size is changed with respect to the pallet size. These systems enable the Sektkellerei company to reduce shipping and complaint costs considerably in the medium term.
The Rotkäppchen-Mumm Sektkellereien GmbH headquartered in Freyburg at the Unstrut in Saxony-Anhalt is leading producer of sparkling wine in Germany. They are also one of the top producers of various spirits and wines. Owing to their production of exclusive wines, the Rotkäppchen-Mumm Sektkellereien hold a "Sparkling wine" market share of approximately 50 percent in the food trade.
The company group currently has around 550 employees and produces at five different locations in Saxona-Anhalt, Thuringia, Hesse and Baden-Württemberg. Production Manager Karl-Josef Lauzi describes the Hesse Sektkellerei: "In Eltville on the Rhine near Mainz, we have a very traditional location". Lauzi has been working for the Sektkellereien for over 30 years and is responsible for the entire Rotkäppchen-Mumm production operation. Lauzi explains, "the company was founded in 1811. The well-known sparkling wine brands are Mumm, MM Extra and Jules Mumm; all of which are produced at this location."
