Who?

In 2015, Brazilian companies Suzano and Ibema agreed a joint-venture agreement, so the new company operates two sites. Turvo site at Parana state and the new one, Embu das Artes site at Sao Paulo.

The site in Turvo has been using Greycon’s X-Trim, opt-Studio and GreyconMill for many years, with excellent and proven results, so the natural consequence was that Greycon was selected to roll out its complete planning and scheduling solution to “new” site, Embú das Artes.

  • Location: Turvo, PR, Brazil
  • Industry: Cardboard Paper
  • Annual production: 108.000 tons
  • ERP System: Microsoft Dynamics AX.
  • Go-live: August 2011

Why?
  • Roll-out Greycon solution template, from Turvo to new site Embu das Artes
  • Complete roll out process, on a very aggressive schedule (5 months)
  • The roll out included transferring the whole site operation and control from Suzano to new joint-venture (human resources, admin processes, IT infrastructure, etc.)

Another successful Greycon project implementation at Ibema, with few minor open topics. We have improved on operations, IT systems and learned about several topics, all in a record implementation time.
