With MES, FPT has enhanced the company’s experience in delivering projects related to digital monitoring and controlling system, helping Carlsberg to optimize the manufacturing process and maximize production output. FPT was chosen to implement this project because of its proven technology capability and strong global presence, especially in Asia.
