Quintiq, a Dassault Systèmes company and global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), announced today that Teijin Aramid has selected its software planning technology to improve global sales and operations planning.

Headquartered in Arnhem, the Netherlands, Teijin Aramid is a world-leading producer of high-strength, heat-resistant aramid fibers Twaron, Technora, Teijnconex and Sulfon. These products are found in numerous applications and markets, including automotive, aerospace and civil engineering.

Teijin Aramid adopted a new marketing and sales strategy that includes a program designed to improve its global sales and operations planning process. A key part of the program is the transformation of Teijin Aramid into a regional sales and supply organization to better serve its customers and further strengthen its offer to the market.

Teijin Aramid selected Quintiq to support its transformation. Quintiq’s supply chain planning and optimization software will enable the company to forecast sales more accurately with statistical forecasting as well as enabling a greater degree of collaboration among its account managers around the world. The fully integrated solution will support Teijin Aramid’s supply planners in converting the sales forecast into a supply plan for its global multi-stage manufacturing and distribution process. These efforts will enable the company to increase its levels of product availability and fulfilment through more accurate sales and demand forecasting, thus improving its overall supply balancing.

“We are confident about a successful future with Quintiq,” said Peter ter Horst, Chief Financial Officer at Teijin Aramid. “The Quintiq team proved in the demo challenge that they could address all the needs of our Sales & Operations Planning Program. With their support, we look forward to elevating our customer service levels while keeping inventories and supply chain costs low.”

“We are very proud to support Teijin Aramid in the global deployment of Quintiq SCP&O for collaborative demand planning and supply planning,” said Arthur Torsy, General Manager EMEA at Quintiq. “Our planning platform―dynamic, flexible, and fully configured to Teijin Aramid’s unique requirements―will support Teijin Aramid in achieving its goals today and well into the future as the business grows.”
