Successful “Go Live” of SAP ERP ECC 6.0 Roll-Out Project at Prettl Home Appliances

Colón, Querétaro, Mexico – September 16, 2016. Prettl Home Appliances has announced the successful implementation of the SAP® ECC 6.0 ERP application. The scope included implementation of the SAP MM, MM-WM, FI, CO, CO-PA, PP and SD ERP modules.

Working in close partnership based on a proven template implemented at PAS Appliance Systems  SA. de CV El Marques in 2012, PAS and the PHAS SAP Team guided the company through the process of implementing the SAP integrated ERP system. The goal was to replace a old legacy system, XPPS/ASSIST, with a single modern state-of-the-art system. Using the new system enables PHAS to streamline back-office processes, enhance time-to-value, optimise the tracking and management of production activities, increase transparency across its supply chain processes, improve project management and streamline its financial systems. The robust solution framework has been designed to optimise PHAS business processes, increasing efficiency and speeding up decision-making.

The roll-out was implemented in an aggressive timeframe of 6 months, strictly to budget, despite the tightly regulated environment.

"This has beyond doubt been a stimulating and challenging project to be involved in." The project involved a complex collaborative model including plants in the cities of Colón and Comonfort. The project is a testimonial to the increased benefits that companies can gain by leveraging from leading-edge SAP best practices. Strengthened by its experience in diversified industries, PHAS is committed to offering competitive integrated technology platforms to help organisations optimise their business processes and achieve long-term growth goals. – Dante Liera Rostro, PHAS Operations Director

PHAS proudly congratulates its staff on the successful implementation. As partners in this success, we reiterate our commitment to providing unceasing support to the Appliances Division and the PAS SAP team headquartered in Neuruppin, Germany.

PAS on the path to success in Turkey

What happens when PAS technologies introduces itself to a household appliance giant such as Arçelik in a workshop?  Large-scale projects are obtained and paths are set for further collaboration.

PAS quickly secured two projects with Arçelik, which also owns brands such as Grundig. As a result, PAS will soon begin manufacturing over 400,000 front panels for dryers annually and in doing so, it will utilise its expertise in plastic injection moulding, pad printing, laser decoration, ultrasonic welding technologies and installation.
In addition to the front panels, cable harnesses will be delivered thanks to the expertise in crimping and IDC technology.
The deliveries are currently limited to Arçelik plants in Turkey, but discussions are also taking place regarding deliveries for plants in Romania, for example. This would also allow the application area to expand simultaneously to dishwashers.

Aircraft Interiors Expo 2016 in Hamburg, Germany is coming to the end

More than 500 companies exhibited in Hamburg the latest trends of the aircraft cabin

Aircraft seats, in-flight entertainment solutions and cabin furnishings and equipment: More than 500 companies presented new concepts around the aircraft cabin. For the 15th time the world´s largest fair for cabin interior have already been taking place in the Hamburg’s exhibition halls.

Airbus for example has presented their new cabin concept "Airspace", Lufthansa Technik showed among other innovations an inductive cooking plate. Besides these major operators 145 new exhibitors presented their ideas. The biggest growth area is the area inflight entertainment and connectivity, where three of the seven halls were devoted to.

This year for the first time three companies of Prettl group presented together the project "Seat Touch Display" with visual and haptic feedback with a fully functional mock up. Low wear and pressure independent one uses this new touch panel. Unintentional operations are not recognized as multiple or simultaneous key presses fields will be rejected by the evaluation algorithms.

This was a very clever idea of  Lesswire GmbH, PAS Deutschland GmbH and Prettl Electronics GmbH.

Until next year, Hamburg.

Prettl reinforces Components & Systems division

Prettl group takes over PAS Management Holding GmbH.

The Pfullingen-based Prettl group has increased its holdings in the PAS Management Holding GmbH, which is headquartered in Neuruppin, and is assuming 100% ownership of the global manufacturer of cable and system panels in the home appliance segment, pending approval of the cartel authorities.

The signing on 22 June 2015 initiated the reinforcement of the Components & Systems division of the Prettl group with the transfer of the 65% of shares of the PAS group previously held by Baird Capital Partners Europe.

"The increase of shares in PAS with the 100% takeover promotes expansion in the competence of our Components & Systems division and allows us to use the already existing synergies even more effectively", Daniel Stuckert, Head of Media & Corporate Communications of the Prettl group, commented with regard to the transaction.

Stefan Kaiser, CEO of PAS, also sees the exploitation of synergies and the expansion of competence as a big opportunity. "The possibilities offered to us through complete affiliation with the Prettl group promise enormous perspectives for development, both from a technological and a market policy point of view." The structure of the Prettl group plays an especially important role in the process, as Kaiser emphasises: "My team and I look forward to using the chance to utilise synergies between PAS and the PRETTL corporate divisions, while in the process also continuing to be able to act autonomously as a company." This is because the independence of PAS as a player on the market still remains. This applies to all PAS locations, including those abroad.
