AsteelFlash Group Delivers Manufacturing Intelligence; Aims to Set the Standard in the Industry

AsteelFlash Group has partnered with three leading vendors to provide customers with IT-enabled material and process traceability solution.

AsteelFlash Group is a provider of specialized high-mix, low-volume EMS services and was recently named the EMS Company of the Year for 2010 by Circuits Assembly magazine.

They are headquartered in Paris, France, with 16 production sites on four continents that include Europe, Africa, North America and Asia and employs over 4000 associates.

AsteelFlash Group was formed in February 2008 by the merger of ASTEEL and Flash Electronics. AsteelFlash strives to be a leader in providing specialized EMS services to selected OEMs.

The three vendors they have partnered with include RedPrairie’s Warehouse Management System, Rockwell Automation’s Manufacturing Execution & Operations Management Platform and ProductionCentre and Cogiscan’s Track, Trace and Control System.

These three systems will all be integrated with AsteelFlash’s own internal data warehouse software into a seamless customer portal.

The new IT system will be applied across all of AsteelFlash’s manufacturing sites worldwide enabling customers to switch seamlessly from a new product introduction to a more cost-effective production with the same level of systems support.

This new internal warehouse management system and manufacturing execution system provides customers with a web-based portal that gives them real-time data and an unparalleled look into the status of their manufacturing projects.

AsteelFlash has already begun implementing the new system in its manufacturing facilities. They expect to have all sites up and running with the new system by the end of 2011.

Georges Garic, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for AsteelFlash Group, says they chose each of these vendors for their experience, unique technology and their ability to support all of our sites across the globe.
