Hydrite selects Infor to modernize its business

Hydrite, an integrated manufacturer and supplier of chemicals and related services, has selected Infor CloudSuite Chemicals to help manage critical business processes and transform its business.

The solution will provide Hydrite with real-time visibility across its entire enterprise and tools to handle the complicated pricing methods associated with manufacturing and distributing commodity chemicals.

With a network of manufacturing facilities, warehouses and laboratories in Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, California and Texas and nearly 1,000 employees in 25 states, Hydrite is one of North America’s largest independent distributors and manufacturers of specialty and industrial chemicals.

Gary Branger, IT director at Hydrite, said: “Hydrite is coming up on 100 years of business, and we’re looking for ways to make the business as efficient as possible for another 100 years. As a results-driven company, we wanted a solution that had proven results and that could quickly scale to support our growth. We selected Infor CloudSuite Chemicals for its last-mile functionality and reputation for industry specificity. Having specific knowledge about true cost and what is being consumed will be a real game changer.”

Having worked together with Infor for 15 years, Hydrite is set to continue its partnership for at least another seven years with this long-term agreement.

“Infor is helping us execute our ambitious growth strategy, and we look forward to continuing our strong partnership,” Branger continued. “With the rollout of this new cloud solution, we expect more modern production scheduling and real-time traceability to help transform our business.”
