ALPHARETTA, Ga.- Aptean, a leading global provider of mission-critical, industry-specific enterprise software solutions, has formed a strategic partnership with MACS EU in Son en Breugel, Netherlands. This partnership is another key milestone in Aptean’s continued growth strategy in the European market, specifically the Benelux region.
MACS EU will sell and support Aptean’s industry-leading Manufacturing Execution System, Aptean Factory MES. Process and discrete manufacturers use Factory MES to gain real-time visibility into production and quality operations, enabling the transition toward a paperless floor. MACS EU serves customers that manufacture products ranging from carpets to cardboard boxes, from pharmaceuticals to ceramic tiles, and from aluminum extrusion to confectionary.
“We are proud to become an Aptean partner and look forward to the opportunity to deliver Factory MES as part of our solutions portfolio. The out-of-the-box offering will prove to be very attractive for many of our customers as it will offer a faster implementation with fewer customizations,” said Guus de Nijs, CEO for MACS EU. “Working with Aptean, we look forward to helping our customers maximize efficient, productive output and labor productivity.”
MACS EU’s presence as a manufacturing consultancy across Europe will help Aptean better serve its customers in the Benelux region of Europe. In turn, Aptean will rely on MACS EU’s expertise in addressing key manufacturing industry challenges.
“We are delighted to welcome MACS EU as an Aptean partner,” said Alan Somerville, managing director of Aptean EMEA. “We are expanding Aptean Factory MES across Europe, and partnering with trusted names in manufacturing technology gives both us and manufacturers peace of mind. We expect MACS EU will be a great help in bringing more factories under the Aptean umbrella.”
