Piave Concrete, part of the Crema Group, is an important supplier of concrete mixes for the construction materials industry in Melbourne. In the ultra-modern plant there, an experienced team of concrete experts work with DornerBatch – and now the first DornerOptimize has been installed. DornerOptimize dispatching software ensures optimal job planning for the construction materials industry and achieves considerable increases in efficiency in the areas of truck fleet and plant operations – and results in associated cost savings.
Piave also uses digital delivery notes: i.e., with transmission of delivery note data in real time and virtual elimination of manual reworking of the delivery notes. Signatures and changes are possible directly in the App, and the delivery note can be paperless or also used parallel to paper solutions. Invoicing is also more efficient, since data on waiting times etc. are directly transmitted.
Further advancement of internationalization
As a family enterprise, Dorner Electronic has been working for the advancement of the construction materials industry for more than 50 years. This has resulted in outstanding staff, flexibility and innovation. Whether standard products or individual customer solutions: the product spectrum ensures reliability under the most extreme conditions in the critically demanding areas of concrete production and distribution.
In the past year, Dorner Electronic succeeded in expanding its international export share by just short of 90 %. Although its primary sales markets are clearly Germany and Switzerland, Latin America and Australia as well as the Far East will play an important future role. Challenges in new Dorner markets remain in not yet entirely clarified general conditions and in political uncertainties.
Dorner Electronic continues to push ahead with its internationalization. On 1 April 2018, it founded its own subsidiary in the city of Perth, Australia. “The markets there are attractive and allow us to get a good price for our products. We will develop the market step by step and offer sales and support on location,” says Andreas Dorner. At the beginning, the location was manned by just one staff member, with two now working in Perth.
The company has currently a workforce of 95, one subsidiary in Australia, certified partners in 15 countries as well as partnerships with major plant engineering firms worldwide.
