New York—April 25, 2014—Hansen Protection, a provider of protective clothing and life jackets for seafarers, chose Gerber Technology’s YuniquePLM product lifecycle management (PLM) solution to manage the design, development and manufacturing of its product lines.
Frithjof Kylstad, vice president of operations at Hansen Protection, said, “As our business is growing, we needed a user-friendly solution to help us streamline our supply chain processes from beginning to end. YuniquePLM can enable us to get full visibility into the progress of our projects from design through production.”
Janka Henriksen, head product developer added, “As first-time PLM users, we have been surrounded by a team of dedicated industry experts from Yunique Solutions and Amatec, Gerber’s distributor in Norway, during the implementation. We look forward to increased efficiency and productivity through improved collaboration and better access to data in a single location.”
Bill Brewster, vice president and general manager for Yunique Solutions, said, “We are certain that Hansen Protection can increase its speed to market and, ultimately, its profitability with YuniquePLM. Once again, we are excited to collaborate with Amatec, a longtime distributor of Gerber Technology’s YuniquePLM, CAD, plotting, cutting and spreading solutions. The implementation of YuniquePLM is a tremendous collaborative team effort and we are expecting to go live in the next few weeks.”
