Hunter Douglas migrated more than 20 plants to the new SAP Manufacturing Suite and SAP S/4HANA®, thus their customers now get complete visibility of the supply chain
"Hunter Douglas recruitedFujitsu to stabilize our SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing deployment across 20+ facilities in 22 months, enabling an Industry 4.0 approach that reduced costs, boosted efficiency, and streamlined manufacturing."
Leading the Industry 4.0 transformation
Hunter Douglas is the world’s leading manufacturer of window coverings, as well as a major manufacturer of architectural products. It develops innovative, high quality, proprietary products that can be found in millions of homes and commercial buildings around the globe.
Hunter Douglas urgently needed a new partner with the expertise to rapidly deploy SAP Manufacturing Execution and SAP MII at its Mexico plant and roll out to its other North American facilities. On SAP’s recommendation, it chose Fujitsu to drive plant stabilization as it was affecting the plant’s capabilities for order fulfillment.
Fujitsu began at the Mexico plant where it quickly designed the environment to work with SAP software and to gain efficiencies in existing processes, providing a best practice blueprint for further implementations across North America. Fujitsu and Hunter Douglas spent 14 months migrating 20+ plants to the new SAP solution.
