Ficomirrors, an automotive global supplier to automakers worldwide, has selected the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to improve production efficiency and power a flexible manufacturing system. Ficomirrors Poland is part of Ficosa, a multinational corporation that specializes in the research, development, manufacturing, and marketing of advanced systems for the motor and mobility sectors.
“Our new manufacturing strategy was designed to respond to the high demand in the automotive industry for customized manufacturing and efficient supply services to enable our customers to increase their rate of production and build in more flexibility at reduced cost,” said Michał Kasak, IT Manager at Ficomirrors. “To ensure smooth integration and execution of the just-in-sequence manufacturing system, we selected HPE GreenLake to build an IT environment that was able to handle any workload on demand, facilitate fast and seamless data sharing, and bolster our flexible approach.”
Ficomirrors turned to Infomex, an HPE Gold Partner, for advisory services and IT environment assessment. Given Ficomirror’s unique requirements, Infomex recommended the HPE GreenLake platform as the best fit to meet both reliability and flexibility requirements. HPE GreenLake enables customers to avoid large-scale investments thanks to a flexible IT consumption model – delivered at the customer’s specified location. For Ficomirrors it means the ability to support their flexible manufacturing strategy with an equally flexible IT environment, and therefore handle any compute workload and easily scale up or down their operations to meet their current and future needs. As a result, the company will be able to reduce the total cost of ownership, significantly boost efficiency of the manufacturing cycle and reduce time to market and ensure competitiveness in the fast-changing world.
