TEST-FUCHS among first to select IFS Applications 10 for aerospace engineering, manufacturing and maintenance

TEST-FUCHS Group, which manufactures test systems and components for the aerospace and defence (A&D) industry, is one of the first A&D customers to select the recently launched IFS Applications 10 as its global Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Maintenance Repair & Overhaul (MRO) solution.

Headquartered in Austria, TEST-FUCHS states that it selected IFS because of its industry-specific capabilities, completeness of the solution, and its long-term aerospace and defence industry experience. TEST-FUCHS will roll out IFS Applications 10 across Austria, Germany, Italy, France, UK, USA, Singapore, and China to support its global mechanical engineering and maintenance operations, which serve some of the world’s major aircraft manufacturers, airlines, OEMs and MROs, including Airbus, Boeing, Air France, British Airways, Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Sikorsky, and Embraer.

IFS Applications 10 has been designed to help companies connect their business to a digital backbone and capitalise on disruptive technologies, processes, and business models such as automation, connected devices, and servitisation. The implementation at TEST-FUCHS will cover preventive maintenance, fleet & asset management, component MRO, manufacturing, human resources, financials, supply chain, CRM, service management, document management, quality management, and quality assurance.

In addition to the new deployment, TEST-FUCHS will enter into a long-term strategic partnership with IFS to help organisations in the aerospace and defence sector react to industry changes by implementing IFS Applications.

“As a fast-growing international technology and engineering company, it is essential that our operations are supported by enterprise software that can adapt and scale at the same rate as the business,” said Armin Havlik, CFO, TEST-FUCHS Group. “The flexibility of IFS Applications and the numerous optimisation possibilities to further refine our business processes was a key factor in our decision, as was its built-in internationality, which enables TEST-FUCHS to easily adapt to country-specific requirements.”

Peter Höhne, VP Sales & Marketing for IFS in Central Europe, added, “For over 70 years, TEST-FUCHS has focused on technology and innovation to help its customers stay ahead in the fast-paced aerospace sector. This is why the company sought an integrated solution to manage and optimise all key business areas and enable it to continue providing a world-class service to its global customer base. The agreement with TEST-FUCHS is yet another example of a leading A&D organisation that selects IFS to get ahead of the disruptive technology challenges facing the industry. We are very pleased to win TEST-FUCHS as a strategic new customer as we expand our footprint in the A&D industry in the region.”
