Paprinsa recently engaged Greycon toupgrade their current production planning and detailed scheduling systems to Greycon’s latest solutions; opt-Studio® and X-Trim®. The implementation will be delivered jointly with Applitec, Greycon’s long standing partner in Spain.

Paprinsa, based in Lleida, Spain has been a client of Greycon’s for many years now and is one of the leading manufacturers of coated and glossy cardboard, distributing to the wider domestic and international markets.

Greycon and Applitec originally implemented Greycon’s S-Plan and X-Trim® solutions at Paprinsa in 2007, streamlining their production process and reducing trim waste. Due to the continued success of Greycon’s solution and ever demanding customer requirements, Paprinsa decided to invest in an upgrade which has improved efficiency and trim results.

Abder Guezour, VP of Global Sales at Greycon states; “ Applitec and Greycon have worked together for a number of years, on various projects across Spain and Latin America. Our continued success and great customer feedback is a testament to a strong relationship and combined industry knowledge. The Paprinsa upgrade is a key example of the high calibre of our joint work and evidence of how valuable our continued development with the Greycon Suite can be for our clients.”

The upgrade, due to go live in October 2016, will improve customer delivery times by being able to compare different scenarios and ensure the planning resources are also reduced. This added functionality is very important to Paprinsa, enabling them to increase productivity whilst focussing on delivering good customer service with reduced lead times.

Javier Farre Domingo, Manager Director from Paprinsa commented “One of the key attributes for the upgrade will be to give us the capability to adapt quicker than ever before to our customer requirements and those last minute changes in orders. Having used Greycon’s solutions for a number of years now, we have been very pleased with how efficient it is. We are looking forward to seeing what the upgrade can do for us”
