Founded in 1969, South Korea-based INFAC develops more than 60 kinds of automotive parts, including valves, switches, nozzles, and antennae. Working closely with major domestic and global automotive manufacturers including Hyundai, Kia, General Motors, Chrysler, Mazda Motors, Isuzu, Honda, and Mitsubishi Motors, it aims to become a global leader in the automotive parts manufacturing sector. With annual business growth of 20% for the past five years, INFAC’s revenue has increased three-fold in the same period to 190 billion won (US$144 million) in 2008. In the light of its rapid growth and increase in market demand for its products, INFAC had to quickly establish a global network of plants in China, India and the US, to supplement its factories in Korea.
INFAC needed to optimize the introduction and management of electronic components in its design centers worldwide to better meet the requirements of its automotive OEM customers.
