Quintiq expands to meet growing demand in EMEA

February 14, 2013 | 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands

Quintiq, a global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O) software, today announced an expansion in its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) operations in direct response to increased demand.

Quintiq is expanding its number of business units (BUs) and departments to 15 in an effort to maintain focus on key industry and solution areas. The newly expanded BU structure enables Quintiq to maintain a small company atmosphere despite having grown to well over 600 people globally. The new organization will provide customers the specific knowledge and expertise they have come to expect, focused on the industries or market verticals in which their units specialize.

Quintiq is expanding its EMEA BUs to eight:

  • France
  • Finland
  • Metals
  • Manufacturing
  • Rail
  • Oil & Gas
  • Logistics
  • Workforce.

Quintiq is extending its group of horizontal department areas to six:

  • Marketing
  • Sales
  • Solutions
  • Optimization Technology
  • Professional Services
  • Products.

A Quality Management unit is also being created to support all departments in quality assurance and quality improvement.

"Based on the current level of demand for our supply chain planning and optimization solutions, Quintiq has taken steps to meet the exciting growth we are seeing in the EMEA markets," said Arjen Heeres, Quintiq's Chief Operations Officer. "This new alignment will ensure we maintain our small company culture and industry expertise while delivering world-class solutions to customers around the world."

Preparing for continued growth in EMEA and the rest of the world, Quintiq is laying the groundwork for further geographical and vertical specialization, including recent investments in its Düsseldorf and Zurich offices which serve its German-speaking markets.
