Earlier this year, ASAŞ completed a greenfield flat rolling plant to take advantage of an emerging market opportunity. The company approached several software vendors in search of a partner who would enable it to produce high volumes of flat-rolled products on time and provide stellar customer service. Quintiq was selected for its expertise in aluminum rolling as well as its clear vision for optimizing the planning and scheduling of the new plant, both immediately and in the long term.

"Quintiq was the obvious choice for us based on the software platform's ability to handle order combinations and manage complex campaigns. We were impressed with its ability to cover strategic, tactical and operational levels of planning," said Safa Bayar Yavuz, general manager of ASAŞ Alüminyum. "The dedication and flexibility of the team also convinced us Quintiq was the best match for our company as we work toward becoming one of Europe's leading aluminum producers."

"ASAŞ' confidence in our solutions is truly gratifying and we look forward to being a long-term partner," said François Eijgelshoven, vice president, EMEA, Quintiq. "Turkey is an important market for us, and our agreement with ASAŞ will allow us to further strengthen our position in the region."
