In Emmen, in the Netherlands, Technologies Added is taking a remarkable new approach to manufacturing, offering a glimpse of how digital innovation is disrupting traditional fabrication processes and how, in collaboration with Dutch lighting manufacturer Sustainder, it’s improving the health and livelihoods of the general public.
Meet Operations Director Marco Bosch, as he explains how Sustainder has developed smart street lighting technology that offers up to 90% energy savings to local authorities while additionally creating a future-proof model for smart city expansion.
Marco is joined by Joris Bisschop, Managing Director at Technologies Added, who shows us around the unique Smart Factory as a Service operation.
