Greycon Ltd. recently announced that Arjowiggins Security Brazil, a world leader in banknote and security papers, has signed an agreement to use Greycon’s S-Plan to increase its mill production efficiency, improving customer service levels and reducing production bottlenecks and idle time.

Arjowiggins Security is headquartered in France and has nine paper mills, six in Europe, one in North America and two in South America. The S-Plan agreement covers the Brazilian operations; the mills in Latin America have both ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certifications and Salto has OHSAS 18001:2007 certification, demonstrating the importance of achieving continuous improvement for Arjowiggins Security.

Jose Renato Vale, Supply Chain Manager for Arjowiggins Security Brazil, stated: "We are confident S-Plan will help us to better serve our clients and collaborate more effectively with the group".

For Greycon, Arjowiggins Brazil represents a further milestone in the expansion of its presence in Latin America and particularly in the Brazilian market. Constantine Goulimis, CEO of Greycon stated: "The first mill that implemented S-Plan was ArjoWiggins Stoneywood more than 20 years ago, so its adoption now by Arjowiggins Security Brazil demonstrates the efficacy of the continuous improvement process employed by Greycon. As a leading global company with a proven ability to meet customer needs and a strong track record of excellent customer service, we are seeing strong demand for our software and services from prospects in South America, where our established presence in the region allows us to provide local support. Therefore we are delighted Arjowiggins Security Brazil have selected Greycon solutions to optimize their production processes".
