Dairy.com CEO Scott Sexton said the Orbis MES application suite provides dairy, food, and beverage plants the ability to manage operations in real-time, from anywhere.
“It is exceptional software that tracks a liquid product's complicated journey from plant intake to finished products,” Sexton said.
“Companies can prevent product loss, evaluate operating performance, improve quality, trace product flows, and monitor utilities consumption. That's great because all plants are looking to maximize efficiency, food safety, and sustainability while minimizing shrink, waste, and losses. With this acquisition, Dairy.com continues to lead the way to a truly integrated and connected supply chain."
Orbis MES has been a MES provider to the food and beverage industry since 1998. Orbis' long-standing partnerships with European dairy clients include Glanbia, Dairygold, and Arrabawn. In the US, Glanbia, Southwest Cheese, Dairy Farmers of America, and Dean Dairy utilize Orbis to optimize plant operations.
"Joining the Dairy.com family allows us to expand our services and offerings to provide more value to our clients," Orbis MES Founder and CEO John Tobin said.
"We are excited to become the Dairy.com European hub and help grow the combined business around the world."
Tobin will continue to lead the Orbis MES team from Dublin and will join the Dairy.com executive leadership team.
