Schneider Electric guides J&J through digitalisation of Normandy site

Schneider Electric, a specialist in digital transformation of energy management and automation, has partnered with Johnson & Johnson in France to guide it through the digitalisation of its manufacturing site in Normandy.

Schneider Electric is working with Johnson & Johnson’s local team to help decrease its French manufacturing site’s carbon footprint through a reduction in energy consumption, while heightening operational efficiency and shortening lead times. The project aims to achieve:

  • 10% reduction in energy cost
  • Up to 25% reduction in carbon emissions

Sebastien Fauvel, digital transformation lead, Johnson & Johnson, said: “We are constantly looking to drive efficiency and sustainability. Schneider Electric is a major partner in our ongoing digitalisation journey. They offer a complete, bespoke end-to-end service, helping us optimise at every turn. This includes training, support, and advice throughout. Primarily, we chose Schneider Electric after seeing their own Smart Factories in action. This provided tangible evidence of what could be achieved through connectivity and highlighted Schneider as the obvious partner for our journey.”

The three-year program, which  started in 2021, feeds into a wider plan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2025 for Johnson & Johnson, the global leader in  research development, manufacturing and selling of  health and wellness products. While Johnson & Johnson has pre-existing Schneider Electric technology, all the systems are not yet interconnected, holding back their full potential. Moving forward, Schneider Electric will connect all of Johnson & Johnson’s technology — even legacy systems — to achieve a higher level of efficiency and optimisation.

Yoann Caballero, expert in digital transformation at Schneider Electric, said: “In today’s industrial environments, connectivity is king. Connecting operations provides the insights needed to improve sustainability and drive profitability. We are looking forward to helping Johnson & Johnson unlock its potential to understand, manage, and enhance its operations and increase overall sustainability.”

At this stage, Schneider Electric has carried out a detailed analysis of the Johnson & Johnson’s Normandy site, using their operational expertise to suggest areas of advancement and those with the biggest cost efficiency and sustainability gains. Following this consultancy period, Schneider will now assist with a complete digital transformation of the French site. This work includes providing the healthcare firm with cutting edge software and services to increase flexibility, operational efficiency, and sustainability.
