Leading supplier to the global automotive industry expands use of IFS Applications in line with business growth.

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Huf Hülsbeck & Fürst GmbH & Co. KG, a developer and producer of mechanical and electrical locking systems, tire pressure monitoring and telematic systems for the automotive industry, is extending its use of IFS Applications™. The order is valued at € 1.4 million.

Huf Hülsbeck & Fürst initially decided to roll-out IFS Applications in 2009 to support the operations of its finance, engineering, sales, distribution, manufacturing, and HR departments. In line with business growth over recent years, IFS will now provide Huf Hülsbeck & Fürst with extra licenses so that more employees in its 16 global locations around the world are empowered to benefit from using IFS Applications.

Ulrich Hülsbeck,  CEO at HufHülsbeck & Fürst, said: “When we initially selected IFS, we wanted an ERP solution that not only supported our immediate business needs, but also one that was agile enough to accommodate change as our business developed. We are proud to have grown Huf by providing quality products to the leading brands in the automotive industry, and we will continue to ensure that our business – as well as the technology that supports it – evolves in line with  our customers’ needs.”
