Leading mining and infrastructure equipment maker gaining visibility and agility in its planning

OTTAWA, ON, March 8, 2021 /CNW/ - Kinaxis® Inc. (TSX: KXS), the authority in driving agility for fast, confident decision-making in an unpredictable world, has been selected by ESCO,® a division of The Weir Group, to transform its global supply chain and provide the agility and responsiveness needed to deliver innovative and quality products that enhance its customer safety and productivity.

ESCO is recognized as an industry leader in the engineering, manufacturing and servicing of mission-critical equipment used by companies in the mining and infrastructure markets. ESCO selected Kinaxis to enhance customer satisfaction by supporting its global sales and operations.

Using Kinaxis RapidResponse® and its concurrent planning technique, ESCO will gain full connectivity and visibility across its end-to-end supply chain. This gives everyone in the ESCO supply chain network a consolidated and up-to-date company-wide view of data to enable what-if scenario analysis so it can rapidly take action when changes happen. It will also help the company improve forecasting and planning, reduce inventory obsolescence, and increase confident decision-making, all in real-time.

"In the highly custom, often engineer-to-order landscape of industrial manufacturing, lead times can be long, but not having the right part at the right time can net huge losses," said John Sicard, CEO Kinaxis. "Using Kinaxis, ESCO will gain the best balance of ready-to-configure applications and a flexible platform that can grow and evolve with the company. We are honored that ESCO selected Kinaxis as their vendor of choice to tackle their increasingly complex supply chain and empower them to better serve customers."
