OMB Valves Chooses Infor for Digitization in the Cloud
16 July 2021
Infor, the industry cloud company based in New York, NY, has announced that OMB Valves, the Italian manufacturer of valves for the oil & gas, power, shipbuilding, and aerospace sectors, will implement Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise as its core technology platform. OMB's vision is to digitize its complex business processes and unify its management strategy over the entire group. This ambitious project will be managed by Infor partner Lutech CDM.
Founded by Roberto Brevi in 1973 and based in Cenate Sotto, Bergamo, OMB Valves now has over 500 employees and seven production plants in Italy, North America, the Middle East and Asia.
OMB Valves' previous ERP system has undergone numerous customizations and modifications to support the exponential growth that the group has been experiencing. However, after many years, it was no longer able to sustain OMB's strong international outlook nor its multi-plant structure. Innovation was essential to perform the technological leap necessary to help make the company competitive. As such, the advantages offered by the cloud environment were decisive in its choice of solution.
Following a selection process that began in November 2020 and ended in March 2021, OMB Valves found the answer to its needs: Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise, a multi-tenant cloud solution available on the AWS (Amazon Web Services) platform able to offer high performance, scalability and security.
This innovative solution will be extended to the production, logistics, finance, and project management departments, involving more than 200 users around the world, in addition to 100 users of Infor Factory Track to push on the digitization of its production processes. The company will quickly benefit from the complete and integrated management of its varied corporate value streams ('make to stock' and 'engineer to order') in a single, secure environment.
The go-live is scheduled for 2022 at all plants in Italy, North America, and Singapore. Following this implementation will be the future plant in Saudi Arabia.
