The integrated energy company to bring concurrent planning across all business functions

OTTAWA, ON, May 17, 2022 /CNW/ - Kinaxis® Inc. (TSX: KXS), the authority in driving agility for fast, confident decision-making in an unpredictable world, announced today that Castrol, a BP company,  one of the world's leading lubricants brands, has selected Kinaxis for increased transparency across its supply chain to drive agility and accuracy.

Castrol manufactures premium lubricants and serves customers in the automotive, industrial, energy, and marine sectors. Shifting from product manufacturing to more integrated solutions, Castrol recognized a need for a flexible planning platform to better anticipate customer needs, integrate agility and build resiliency across its global supply chain network.

With an initial focus in North and South America, Castrol intends to expand use of the Kinaxis RapidResponse® platform globally in a phased roll out that will deliver demand and supply planning capabilities alongside a more mature S&OP process. Castrol joins a growing number of high-performance companies who are adopting the Kinaxis industrial ecosystem.  

"Helping companies, like Castrol, who work to lead innovation across a variety of industries; commercial, personal and industrial, is what we at Kinaxis do best," said John Sicard, CEO at Kinaxis. "Providing insight into every aspect of a company's supply chain gives its planners the confidence to make fast and informed decisions, prevent problems and be agile to change. We are so excited to work with Castrol in making their supply chain as smooth as possible."
