SYSPRO, a global, independent developer of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, today congratulates its customer, aerospace components manufacturer Quickstep Holdings, for achieving the double distinction of taking the Endeavour Award for Global Integration as well as being named Manufacturer of the Year at this year's Manufacturers' Monthly Endeavour Awards.
The Global Integration Award recognizes manufacturers who have successfully engaged in international supply chains. Quickstep received the awards in recognition for its efforts to successfully enter the F-35 global supply chain, culminating in the recent signing of a long term manufacturing agreement for the international F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program. Under the agreement Quickstep will supply a large number of composite doors and panels, projected to be in excess of 36,000 parts over the life cycle of the program. The JSF is the largest military aerospace program in the world, currently valued at more than US$300 billion worldwide.
"We are delighted to have been recognized for our work on the Joint Strike Fighter program," Quickstep managing director, Philippe Odouard said in a statement. "The signing of a long term agreement to manufacture parts for the F-35, a fifth generation stealth fighter, was a landmark event for Quickstep and prepares the company for further defense and aerospace contracts to be manufactured here in Australia."
Quickstep chose SYSPRO as its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software to manage its sophisticated manufacturing and quality control processes. SYSPRO provides implementation, support and consulting services to Quickstep.
"I offer my warmest congratulations to Quickstep," said Asia Pacific General Manager of SYSPRO Software, Shaun Butler. "Quickstep's Award for Global Integration reflects the company's superior access to reliable information within its production systems and visibility within its supply chain.
"SYSPRO provides Quickstep with a complete enterprise resource planning solution which can be tailored to its most specialized needs in a demanding manufacturing environment. We are proud to have been chosen by Quickstep as the enterprise solution it will use to manage its composite materials manufacturing."
