FeneVision ERP software is being implemented at 15 glass fabricating facilities operated by AGC Glass Co. North America. With more than 20 fabrication locations in the United States and Canada, AGC services multiple market segments, offering insulating, tempered and laminated glass, as well as other products.

“As part of our plan to update our plants with state-of-the-art technology, we knew this journey needed to begin with partnerships to support our goal to become more efficient and versatile in how we produce our products, and how we serve our customers. It was a priority for us to find a specialized software solution that would fit our needs perfectly, as well as the needs of all our businesses in North America," says Shane Sieracki, AGC manager of North American Operations. "After extensive research and evaluating a variety of solutions, we realized that FeneVision ERP, developed by Ohio-based FeneTech, was the way to go. Our team was extremely impressed with FeneTech’s detailed software demonstration. Upon visiting with more than one customer of FeneTech, we were pleased to learn how satisfied they are with the FeneVision software and what great service they receive from the FeneTech team.”

“There were many factors considered before making our final decision. FeneVision is a very comprehensive ERP solution, very user-friendly and it is specifically designed for the fenestration industry," adds Terrie Sommers, AGC's senior director of fabricated products. "Furthermore, FeneTech offers an e-commerce solution to streamline service to our customers, which we could not find with any other industry related software supplier. Also, the software is Microsoft SQL Server based and fully integrated, with one central database structure, which was quite important to us.”

“We are very delighted with AGC’s selection of our product and we are now very proud to be adding AGC to the FeneVision family," says Horst Mertes, Fenetech's VP of sales and marketing. "This is a huge success for our company, and this deal represents one of the largest orders FeneTech has ever received in North America. We look forward to providing AGC our world-class service and support that we are well known for in the industry. We are glad that our company continues to grow despite a still weak economy.”

“Participating in AGC’s comprehensive software review and selection process was invigorating," notes Ron Crowl, Fenetech president and CEO. "Seeing others get excited about the FeneVision software and their realization that partnering with FeneTech can add significant value to their business is personally satisfying. This validates that our continued investment into FeneVision, and our people is our path to long-term success. We look forward to building a long-term mutually beneficial relationship with AGC North America.”
