Camfil Farr Power Systems (CFPS), a global leader in manufacturing of air inlet filtration and acoustic systems for turbomachinery and part of the Camfil Farr group, has selected IFS Applications for Project-based Manufacturing to streamline business processes globally. The contract includes software and consulting services and has a total value of Skr 11 million.

The solution includes IFS Applications components for finance, distribution, purchasing, manufacturing, project management, product data management (PDM), sales configurator, sales contract management and human resources (HR). IFS will implement the solution at CFPS operations in Sweden, Canada, Germany and India. A proof-of-concept phase has been successfully completed and the implementation project will begin immediately.

Being OEM partner to the world’s leading gas turbine and compressor manufacturers, CFPS is subject to high standard requirements both in terms of quality and agility. To improve its business further and to become even more customer-oriented, CFPS has initiated a change process to streamline business processes globally.

“The ability to adapt to changing market requirements calls for an agile ERP system like IFS Applications. Being a project-based company, we need a fully integrated project-based solution to secure real-time overview of all important project information. IFS has proved its ability to deliver on these requirements, and in combination with IFS worldwide service and support, we have found a future-proof partner in ERP,” Peter Sandberg, CFPS CEO said.

IFS recognises that continuous investments in the product, as well as having consultants who understand today’s project-based manufacturing, is key to being a long-term partner to customers in this area.

“We have a strategic focus on project-based solutions, which we find are attractive to companies in many industries – especially project-based manufacturers that operate on a global scale. Adding Camfil Farr to our customer base means we are on the right track,” Glenn Arnesen, CEO IFS Scandinavia said.
