Eastman Chemical Company has selected the OMP Plus and OMP Designer software from OM Partners to improve supply chain operations in its worldwide locations.
OMP Plus will be used to plan and schedule continuous, batch and campaign manufacturing as well as distribution. OMP Designer will assist Eastman Chemical Company in optimizing its global Supply Chain Network.
Kevin Pruitt, Director at Eastman Chemical Company: The choice for OM Partners was established after a period of in-depth comparison with other vendor solutions. APS systems previously acquired by Eastman, allowed us to understand which unresolved planning problems we wanted to address through new software. Seamless integration with our SAP system was another very important element in our detailed requirements list. OM Partners simply had the best fit.
Luc Schepens, Partner at OM Partners: The Eastman contract underlines our growth in the US, having also signed global agreements with a very large American aluminum producer and the largest US flooring company. Our extensive install base in the chemical industry was an important element in winning the contract with Eastman Chemical Company. We expect more growth in the US and Asia through this agreement and our other global customers.
