Mediterranean Float Glass Establishes New Plant in Algeria
Cevital Corporation's flat glass division known as MFG Mediterranean Float Glass, is establishing a new, fully-automated window and IG plant in Algeria for its wholly owned company Oxxo. The new Oxxo plant will produce the entire product range of windows and IG and and will set up its own extrusion plant.
Cevital decided June 18 to purchase a comprehensive A+W CANTOR ERP solution including the A+W CANTOR dealer software. The high-tech glass production of the Oxxo-plant will be equipped with a premium A+W production system including the automatic optimizing and sorting system DynOpt. The contract has a total volume of one million Euros.
The Cevital group, founded in 2008, is a conglomerate with 12,000 employees in 18 branches. The glass division MFG is one of the largest flat glass corporations in Africa. Oxxo is one of the leading window and glass manufacturers in France.
A + W CEO Dr. Uwe Schmid said, "We are glad that Cevital has opted for A + W software! A + W does not only offer holistic high-end solutions for the glass and window production, ‘all of a piece'; as the global market leader, we have the experience and potential to professionally implement complex international projects of this magnitude."
The Oxxo project is just the beginning of a long-term cooperation between Cevital and A+W, according to the release: In the second step of the project, more Cevital / MFG production plants in France and Algeria will be equipped with A+W software in 2015.
