Swagelok Selects SAP to Transform Business Systems

SOLON, Ohio (June 29, 2011) – Swagelok Company, a privately held global developer and provider of fluid systems solutions, has chosen SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) to spearhead a transformation of its business systems software. With a tradition of delivering high-quality products and services, Swagelok will implement SAP® software to increase efficiencies in business processes and further collaborate with key customers and suppliers.
