Key project for small and medium-sized businesses

The Phoenix Cement Works Krogbeumker GmbH & Co. KG (Fig.), a long-established company within the Westphalian cement industry, has decided to introduce the VAS IT logistics system by Fritz & Macziol. “Until now, we have had to manage the processes manually and on paper”, said Phoenix Plant Manager Kai Wagner in explanation of the company’s reorientation. “With the aid of the VAS IT logistics system, the processes within the cement works are now to be automated gradually, and unmanned loading implemented across the plant”. The next step will be the integration into a modern ERP system, which would replace the pre-existing solution. In addition, the processes of sack handling and material deliveries are to be integrated into the VAS IT logistics system. “The high flexibility and the possibility of stepwise optimisation of our business processes were major criteria for deciding on Fritz & Macziol. In addition, the VAS IT logistics system has already proven its pr­acticability”, explained Kai Wagner. “We are delighted that the ­Phoenix ­Cement Works has selected the VAS IT logistics system, in particular because Phoenix is an exceptionally innovative company, and therefore a most important key customer in the small and medium-sized cement industry”, said Claus Jordan, Director Business ­Development and Marketing Industrial Applications and Services at Fritz & Macziol.
