Leading aeronautical manufacturer based in France implements IFS Applications (STO:IFSA) (STO:IFSB) to support global growth
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that French aeronautical manufacturer Figeac Aéro has decided to implement IFS Applications™ 9 to replace and unify its current portfolio of business systems. The agreement includes licenses and services valued at approximately 1.5 million euros.
With a workforce of more than 1,900 employees at sites in France, the US, Mexico, Morocco, and Tunisia, Figeac Aéro is a leading aerospace manufacturer specializing in the production of light alloy and hard metal structural parts, engine parts, landing gear parts, and sub-assemblies. Figeac Aéro aims to be the number one aerospace subcontractor in Europe.
In order to support the rapid growth of its industrial footprint, the company was looking for a comprehensive enterprise software suite to replace its portfolio of legacy systems. Following a thorough evaluation process, Figeac Aéro selected IFS Applications.
The IFS solution will be used by some 1,200 employees to support mission-critical processes such as manufacturing, supply chain management, financials, quality management, and project management.
“We needed a central, integrated business system to effectively manage our rapidly growing operations,” Figeac Aéro CEO Jean-Claude Maillard said. “We chose IFS based on the solution’s comprehensive functionality and the company’s successful track record in the aerospace manufacturing sector.”
