Rockwell Automation, along with Dutch partners Sustainder and Technologies Added, are featured in a BBC StoryWorks video highlighting the companies’ collaboration to build more sustainable lighting in a smart factory setting.

Seeking to develop a smart lighting program for smart cities, Sustainder, a lighting manufacturer, tapped Technologies Added, a communal manufacturing plant.  Sustainder was interested in the company’s  “smart factory as a service” offering to help produce large orders with complex customization options. Technologies Added runs on a digital backbone powered by a manufacturing execution system from Rockwell Automation.

The documentary-style video highlights the ways this partnership has helped the Dutch city of Emmen to create a safer, cost-effective, and more sustainable environment for its people.  Emmen is a so-called smart city, an urban area that uses technology to provide services and solve city problems.

The documentary, produced by BBC StoryWorks Commercial Productions and presented by Digital Europe, is part of the Digitally Enlightened series, which uncovers stories of innovators that are using the power of digital technology to drive positive impact in their communities and across Europe. The series debuted in April.
