Here are some things you will learn about MillerCoors in Trenton:
1) The Robot change their own batteries
The plant’s laser guided, automated vehicles are more than moving arms on an assembly line.
They literally drive themselves. They are controlled by information loaded into a computer program. They move pallets of brew around the plant’s distribution center as smoothly as figure skaters move on the ice. Human workers towing products on three-wheel bikes seamlessly weave around the machines.
The robots can change their own batteries and, pull themselves in for occasional repairs. The plant’s massive inventory of beer is turned over every day and a half.
2) Economic impact effect
The company pays about $15 million in property, state and local taxes annually and buys $130 million in goods and services in the state each year.
Many area residents are employed in positions related to the brewery. “For every job in a brewery there are two more outside.”
3) Location and water
The Trenton site was selected due to the surrounding workforce, location to highways and its plentiful aquifer. MillerCoors and its employees work hard to be good stewards of the water, and the company is involved in several conservation efforts, she said. It is a very high quality and high quantity aquifer. Water is very important to the process. It’s a natural resource that needs to be protected.”
The plant has a miniature quick response vehicle and 40 employees are certified as EMT/first responders. Crossings in the building are clearly marked. Bulletin boards discuss safety efforts. One stands out because that board has photos of children and other family members, and asks why employees choose to work safely.
5) Landfill free
The plant is landfill-free. 99.8 percent of the plant’s waste is recycled or reused. The remaining is burned and disposed of in an environmentally sound way. Five out of MillerCoors’ eight major plants are landfill free.
