Kingspan Water and Energy UK has successfully standardised on Infor LN ERP to help improve customer service, reduce inventory and accelerate the integration of new acquisitions. The solution is now live for 500 users across 11 sites in Ireland, Northern Ireland and England, and was achieved with no disruption to operations.
Infor alliance partner Merino Services managed the deployment, which is hosted via Kingspan’s own private cloud. Infor LN will also be rolled out to operations in Poland and Belgium, with plans for Norway and Australia to follow.
Kingspan chose Infor based on the strong multi-site and planning functionality and commercial flexibility within Infor LN, despite other companies in the Kingspan Group using different ERP technologies.
“We have a long-term strategic view of the future of our business, driven by both organic growth and acquisition,” said Richard Mayrs, Kingspan head of IT. “A critical part of this is our ability to capitalise on consistent, standard processes, be it within existing operations or as part of new acquisitions.”
Simon Quinton, Infor GM for UK & Ireland, added: “As a result of our deep domain expertise and investment in cloud technologies, Infor is now able to help complex manufacturers recognise the processes that can be handled by technology straight out of the box. Kingspan has chosen to use this framework to deliver more and more value to its customer base by some astute investments in analytics, automation and reporting. This will help improve many aspects of the business simultaneously, creating a transformative effect.”
