News: Tribotecc chooses Quintiq's platform to improve visibility and increase productivity

April 25, 2013 - Quintiq, a global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), today announced that Tribotecc GmbH, has chosen Quintiq's platform for demand and procurement planning and production scheduling.

A subsidiary of Rockwood Holdings, Tribotecc is the world's leading supplier of friction stabilizers based on metal sulfides. The Quintiq solution will provide Tribotecc with more operational visibility and functionality than its current system, to support its new article master data structure in Vienna and Arnoldstein, Austria.

The Quintiq solution will bring real-time visibility to Tribotecc's entire sales, purchase and production chain, as well as the flexibility and functionality to operate according to a specified set of KPIs. Quintiq will empower the metal sulfides manufacturer to:

  • Increase productivity including reduced lead time
  • Decrease inventory through accurate forecasting and visibility of stock levels
  • Sustain costs through optimizing lot sizes and packaging
  • Keep delivery performance above 95%.

"Our new article master data structure could not be modeled in our current software," said management of Tribotecc. "Quintiq won us over by demonstrating its integration capabilities, transparency as well as the flexibility enabling the software to be custom-tailored to process the many specific requirements of both the chemical industry and Tribotecc - such as byproducts, alternative raw material input, loss, lot optimization and sequencing - over various planning horizons."

"Quintiq is delighted to be delivering the unmatched transparency and functionality that Tribotecc was looking for through a single, 100%-fit SCP&O solution," said Jos Braam, Director, Manufacturing at Quintiq. "The specialty chemical and pharmaceutical businesses of Austria, Germany and Switzerland offer an exciting new area of challenge for Quintiq as we continue our massive growth."
