Polar Krush using AI and tech to boost employment


Global iced drinks manufacturer Polar Krush has implemented cutting-edge technology that has allowed them to increase employment as the business continues to grow.

In contrast to the news that four million jobs in the British private sector could be replaced by robots in the next decade, Polar Krush is increasing the number of engineers and workers on the factory floor as a direct result of its investment in AI and technology.

In the UK, 13 per cent of employers think more than 30 per cent of jobs will become automated in the next 10 years.

Paul Goldfinch, managing director at Polar Krush said: “From filling boxes, collating and palletising; we are now all fully automated at our headquarters.

“As well as allowing us to increase our output and productivity dramatically, our artificial intelligence system allows us to upskill our team and create more jobs at our headquarters.

“Our staff are our greatest asset and improvements to the factory floor allows them to have a much better working environment and increase their own skills.

“Our Remote Kare system ensures that we can proactively keep our customers happy, rather than reacting to machines breaking down.

“Our engineers can plan their journeys and their time much more accurately and spend their time making sure our customers are being looked after, which is a much better use of their talent and time.”

The ‘Remote Kare ‘Smart’ Technology’ consists of a Remote Kare SIM card fitted into every machine, alerting an engineer of any changes that may cause an issue before they occur, preventing disruption to sales.

Michael Reid, sales director at Polar Krush said: “In the unlikely event that your machine needs attention from one of our trained engineers, our Remote Kare monitoring team can see exactly what the problem is and we can get someone dispatched as quickly as possible to get you back up and running.”
