Leading German Industrial Manufacturer, STAHLWILLE, Chooses ERP Solution from IFS
IFS has been selected to provide a corporate ERP solution for STAHLWILLE, one of the leading toolmakers in Europe. STAHLWILLE is currently using IFS Financials, but will extend its use of IFS Applications to include components for engineering, manufacturing, maintenance, sales, distribution, and human resource management throughout the group, in an order valued at over 1 million.
STAHLWILLE has been using a mix of homegrown and individual proprietary business software that is currently slowing down the development and expansion of the company. Many of the solutions control specific manufacturing processes such as CAQ, DMS, customs clearing, EDI, CAD, and shop floor reporting. To streamline its processes, STAHLWILLE will implement IFS Applications across all business areas of the group.
CEO J?rg Czempisz comments:”We need a complete ERP-solution for our enterprise which will enable us to set up consistent processes across the business to increase general efficiency and customer orientation. By implementing IFS Applications, we can reach this target and can raise our competitive position significantly. As a company, we have innovative concepts to help us deal with changing markets and increasing customer demands, IFS Applications will place us in the perfect position to realize these plans.”
Peter H?hne, Director Sales & Marketing at IFS, adds:” STAHLWILLE is a client and partner that fits perfectly into our portfolio and highlights our competency in the industrial manufacturing arena. We are delighted that we can implement, based on the existing business connection with STAHLWILLE, a fully integrated ERP solution that will benefit its business all over the world.”
STAHLWILLE will adopt IFS Applications in all operations of the group. The implementation will take place in two stages, completing by December 31st 2011. Industrial manufacturing is one of IFS’ targeted markets. IFS Industrial Manufacturing customers include Aeromatic-Fielder, Star-Cutter, J&H Machine Tools, Konskilde, Nolato Group, Bombardier, Partnertech AB, Mechanik Center Erlangen GmbH, V?lkl and Johnson Pump.
