The Winona, Minnesota based factory is the most efficient producer of candies in the Brach’s family.   The direct digital control system is responsible for mixing, blending and moving the candy recipes along the factory floor.  Critical measuring and scheduling of the assembly and production lines are required in order to maintain a high production output.


 Originally installed in 1987, Bridger Control Systems recently provided a complete system software upgrade to the control processors and front end operator interfaces. 


 The entire upgrade was installed while the factory was online and required no downtime or system interruption.  The system operators were left with a much more simplified and user friendly GUI which will help Brach’s/Minnesota maintain their position as the leader in their field for Gummi Bear Production!
