Breclav, Czech Republic, Feb 7, 2017
The Alca plast company has been growing continuously since its formation in 1998 and it is becoming an important player globally in its field. The total sales have approached CZK 1,5 billion in the last year. The owners of the company are convinced that the success is above all due to the consistent adherence to the company’s motto: “To always be a reliable supplier for all our customers”.
The ever increasing number of customers increases the pressure on the production itself, which has to ensure a timely delivery of the customers’ orders. That requires a quality and accurate management of the order fulfilment process. Therefore the Alca plast company has decided on an investment into strengthening this area by the implementation of an advanced production planning system (APS). As its implementation partner it has chosen the LOGIS company, a supplier with many years of experience with these projects that has proven its competence in the course of the tender as well as the consecutive elaboration of the pre-implementation study.
The co-owner, Chief Executive and CEO of the Alca plast company, Ing. František Fabičovič, states: “We plan to keep growing. We care immensely about each of our customers and we want to do everything for the satisfaction of their demands. To achieve this, we have to be able to manage better how the individual orders are carried out. I believe that the implementation of the APS project in cooperation with the LOGIS company will help us with this effort significantly.”
Ing. Tomáš Vojtík, Chief Executive and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the LOGIS company, adds: “We are glad that Alca plast chose us as their implementation partner. Although we have decades of successful projects in the APS area behind us already, it is apparent that in the case of Alca plast we will have to face new challenges again. I believe, however, that with our joint project we will contribute to the fulfilment of goals that the Alca plast has set for themselves.”
