In this context Fritz & Maczoil has also been announced as a ‘Preferred Supplier’ by HeidelbergCement AG.

"Due to the large international experience as a hardware independent IT-specialist in the industrial environment and the flexibility in creating an interface to SAP, Fritz & Maczoil reflects an ideal partner for us in the fields of IT-Logistics." said Tanja Hofmann, group purchasing at HeidelbergCement AG.

“The announcement of receiving the status ‘Preferred Supplier’ reflects a high level of trust, that has grown within our long lasting partnership. HeidelbergCement is a global player and belongs to the industry-leading companies in its field." explained Marc Brida, manager sales & business development, industrial applications and services at Fritz & Maczoil.

Currently four German cement plants of the HeidelbergCement group run the IT-Logistic solution VAS. The solution will now be further implemented in the remaining German works whereas at the same time both sides will work on the international roll-out.
