Siemens Vertical Glass and FeneTech have announced a partnership to advance both companies’ performance in the glass processing industry. Initial pilot applications of the FeneVision ERP system to Siemens’ automation and digitalization portfolio for the glass processing industry are already in the planning stages.

“At the heart of digital solutions from Siemens is the digital twin, a virtual image of plants based on an end-to-end data model. The consistent use of these solutions along the entire value chain in glass manufacturing and processing and throughout the entire life cycle pays off. In glass processing, which tends to be performed by medium-sized businesses, we still require an integrated and customized ERP solution,” says Heinz-Josef Lennartz from Siemens’ in Germany. “In numerous discussions with customers, both we and FeneTech, independent of one another, keep hearing that there is a demand for completely integrated solutions in glass processing.”

“Through the planned collaboration with Siemens, we would be able to bring fully networked and integrated solutions to market faster,” adds FeneTech president Ron Crowl.
