Plastic recycler and yarn manufacturer Gama Recycle Sustainable Technologies has selected the Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise platform to provide transparency into its supply chain.

This is expected to help accelerate value streams and reduce lead times, as well as help Gama expand market share and increase transparency and productivity.

Established in Gaziantep, Turkey, in 1997, Gama has grown to be the largest recycled-plastic yarn and fibre producer in the world. Recycling textile products and R-PET (polyethylene terephthalate) flakes, its production process is riskier and more complex than others that use virgin materials.

This complexity, combined with supply chain volatility following Brexit and the pandemic, led to the requirement for modern ERP (enterprise resource planning) to support enhanced end-to-end collaboration across Gama’s supply chain. Crucially, the ERP needed to streamline operations through reducing errors and operational failures, ensure quality consistency, and improve the customer experience.

Following a market evaluation, Gama selected New York-based Infor’s CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), based on its simplified and preconfigured business processes, developed in line with industry-specific experience and expertise.

“Increased demand for customised goods produced in a sustainable way has created a need for enhanced transparency across the whole supply chain,” said Zafer Kaplan, president of Gama. “In responding to the needs of a rapidly changing and dispersed market, it is important that we foster collaboration across the entire value chain, from suppliers to customers. In doing this, we can be agile in assessing and addressing market changes, and deliver the product and service quality our customers expect. Through leveraging the capabilities of Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise, we are able to connect all of our processes digitally, which allows us to work more sustainably and effectively, optimise our organisational structure, and improve our product and service delivery model.”

The multi-tenant cloud application will be deployed by Infor partner Enigma Business and is set to go live in October 2022.

“Due to digital advancements and increasing consumer expectations in the market, our customers feel the need for more exceptional speed and adaptability in their business,” said Reslen Eroğlu, Enigma Business managing partner. “Building an organisation that can respond rapidly and appropriately to new challenges and opportunities requires the right strategy and, crucially, the right digital infrastructure that can flex and scale proportionately, to capitalise on new market demands, and instil a culture of resilience.”

Over 60,000 organisations in more than 175 countries rely on Infor’s 17,000 employees and their industry expertise to help achieve their business goals.

Q&L Industrial Services, a third-party logistics provider headquartered in Slovakia, is migrating to the Infor WMS warehouse management cloud to improve performance of stock operations. Q&L expects the new system to provide additional benefits in speed and accuracy for its customers.
