Holcim to Expand AI-based Machine Intelligence

Holcim is scaling up the use of Artificial Intelligence in manufacturing across more than 100 plants worldwide over the next four years, improving efficiency and reinforcing capacity for customers. 

With AI already deployed at 45 of its plants to predict and prevent failures before they occur, Holcim will deepen and broaden this application to boost operational resilience. This will entail Holcim further rolling out a state-of-the-art predictive maintenance solution from AI platform software provider C3 AI, as well as piloting generative AI to enhance its capabilities.

“AI is a transformative technology that will revolutionize our industry. Already widely embedded across Holcim, AI catalyzes operational efficiency and enhances customer service. We will ultimately scale up our use of AI to hundreds of sites worldwide,” said Holcim CEO Miljan Gutovic.

As part of the rollout, Holcim’s maintenance teams are being equipped with best-in-class predictive technology for real-time asset management and optimization. Holcim’s AI initiatives in manufacturing span several other areas, from product quality and process optimization to autonomous vehicles and computer vision.
