IFS to support global expansion of Spanish industrial group Goizper

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Goizper S. Coop, a leading industrial group in Spain, has chosen to deploy IFS Applications™ 8 to support its project-based business plan and global expansion. The solution will initially be implemented for 280 users at sites in Spain and France.

The Goizper group focuses on industrial manufacturing of power transmission and automation solutions, hand sprayers and dusters, as well as production of biocides. The company is in a phase of strong international growth, focusing especially on China, Brazil, Eastern Europe, and Mexico.

To support its project-based business and rapid global growth, Goizper needed a scalable ERP solution that could support the entire value chain; from production and distribution to sales and finance. After a rigorous evaluation process involving vendors such as SAP, Microsoft Dynamics AX, and UNIT4 Agresso, Goizper selected IFS.

“Given our plans to expand the business internationally, we needed to replace our old business systems and consolidate our processes into one integrated solution that could support our project-based operations,” Goizper Group CEO Alvaro Martinez de Lagos said. “The evaluation phase proved that IFS Applications could encompass virtually all processes in our business while being versatile in meeting the challenges of our units and their individual characteristics. We believe that IFS will help us become even more competitive as a manufacturer and help us increase our global presence.”

“Goizper’s diversified operations, project-oriented strategy, and international ambitions call for an agile, full-suite ERP solution that can make all crucial data available in a project dimension,” IFS Iberica Managing Director Nick Wasey said. “These requirements fit very comfortably within our domain expertise. IFS also has extensive experience supporting global growth and we are excited to be part of Goizper’s future success.”
