OTTO FUCHS – Forging New Successes – simple, secure, efficient
OTTO FUCHS is a global leader in the non-ferrous metal industry, with headquarters in Meinerzhagen and subsidiaries in Europe, Africa, Asia, and America. The consortium produces metallurgically sophisticated semi-finished and finished goods for the automotive industry, machine and plant engineering, aero-space and the construction industry. As a supplier, OTTO FUCHS is particularly subject to the constantly growing requirements placed on product manufacturers: not just regarding quality and documentation but mainly in the area of development and delivery times or costs. For this reason, the metal specialist has recently begun to optimize his product creation process with SAP support. What has already been achieved and what comes next is described here by Jörg Ihne, manager of product and technology development of the OTTO FUCHS group.
