Konvekta Fosters Sustainable Production with Infor
Manufacturer of vehicle cooling systems migrates to Infor CloudSuite Automotive to help facilitate more environmentally friendly production
MUNICH – November 21, 2019 – Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, today announced that Konvekta AG is deploying Infor CloudSuite Automotive. The global vehicle air conditioning and cooling systems manufacturer aims to make its production more environmentally friendly. Sustainable technologies and ecological materials play an important role for the company. Thanks to Infor CloudSuite Automotive and its integrated end-to-end processes, Konvekta can now focus on driving electric mobility through innovative thermal management.
Konvekta AG was founded in 1957 by Carl H. Schmitt in Schwalmstadt (state of Hesse, Germany), and started producing automotive air conditioning and cooling systems just four years later. Since then, the company has become a global manufacturer of innovative and future-oriented air conditioning and cooling systems for commercial vehicles of all kinds, including buses, construction and agricultural machinery as well as rail and refrigerated vehicles. In addition, Konvekta focuses on leveraging sustainable technologies and environmentally friendly resources for its manufacturing processes at its six branches worldwide.
Konvekta decided to migrate from the previous Infor LN on-premise ERP solution to the Infor cloud-based application due to the solution’s strong automotive industry-specific focus as well as its flexibility and agility to deliver the manufacturer's special requirements. Infor CloudSuite Automotive is designed specifically to meet the needs of automotive suppliers. It optimizes the core areas of product and program management, supply chain and procurement, manufacturing and global finance management, and is ideally suited to increase the company's performance. It supports Konvekta by producing ecological climate systems. It also supports the outsourcing of production, new unit development as well as the creation of joint ventures.
With Infor CloudSuite Automotive, Konvekta can focus on rolling out its new CO2 heat pump system series. Thus, the company focuses on electromobility and provides an ecologically valuable and particularly economical thermal management.
“Infor CloudSuite Automotive supports our global activities 24/7 and offers us more transparency in the supply chain,” says Marco März, CEO of Konvekta. “Through providing advanced, innovative procurement tools at low prices and better scheduling of all processes, Infor helps us sustainably optimize many processes and meet the needs of the market.”
“Konvekta offers an extensive range of high-quality products and can use our Infor CloudSuite Automotive extended applications ideally in production planning and manufacturing,” says Jöerg Jung, Infor managing director of Central and East Europe. “We are proud to support sustainable production with our solutions and thus help protect the environment.”
Konvekta AG is a global operating manufacturer of innovative and pioneering climate systems for buses, construction and agricultural machinery, electric as well as rail and transport refrigeration vehicles. Konvekta discovered R-744 (CO2) as refrigerant for bus air conditioning units and simultaneously invented the first mobile climate system operating with R-744. Founded in 1957 and located in the North Hesse city of Schwalmstadt, the family-owned company represents more than 60 years of experience and know-how in the air conditioning and refrigeration sector. Due to the global presence on key markets, Konvekta guarantees flexibility, an excellent proximity to customers and a large service network.
