      Transforming industry with automation

      Global energy demand is rising, putting more pressure on industry to increase efficiency by digitizing. See how Schneider Electric is helping industries tap into the potential of the Industrial Internet of Things to improve productivity and control and create more value.

      The challenge

      • With more than 100,000 employees and ¥110 billion in assets, China National Building Materials Group Corporation (CNBM) is one of the largest cement manufacturers globally. One out of every 10 tons of cement in the world is produced by CNBM. 

      • While the cement industry has always faced the challenge of high energy consumption, governmental energy regulations have become more stringent in this respect over recent years. To improve its energy efficiency, CNBM has started working with Schneider Electric.
