ADVARIS Informationssysteme GmbH and Maillefer Extrusion Oy have concluded a strategic partnership for the business area called Maillefer Factory System (MFS). From now on, ADVARIS will be equipping Maillefer and its international customers with cutting-edge operation management systems for the cable and wire industry. Maillefer offers a complete set of technology and services for turnkey-ready cable factories and extensions of existing factories as a general contractor and is now planned to intensify this business area.
Maillefer has chosen suitable partners for the individual trades involved in creating a cable factory. “Right from the beginning, ADVARIS was our ideal partner for enterprise resource planning (ERP) and manufacturing execution system (MES). For us, as a premium supplier, the decisive factors are high quality, reliability and know-how – and ADVARIS delivers all three”, says Juha Hiltunen, head of the Project Management.
The ADVARIS ERP / MES solution “ADVARIS Cable” includes all software modules required for the operation of a cable factory. From cable design to manufacturing, to quality assurance and delivery, Maillefer’s customers can now rely on the support of an integrated system. For a long time now ADVARIS Cable MES has set standards as the leading, sector-specific solution. With the new system release in spring 2016, ADVARIS has become one of the pioneers of the “Smart Factory” in length-based manufacturing. ADVARIS Managing Director Dr. Manfred Moser sees numerous benefits from the cooperation: “Bundled strengths, and a stimulating exchange of knowledge as complementary partners, create additional competitive advantages for both companies. Thus for ADVARIS users, Industry 4.0 is no longer Utopia, but is becoming an established way of life.”
