Cooperation History

PAROC’s long-term cooperation with Syncron Tech began in a situation where PAROC needed to modernize its production information system. With the SyncMES software, PAROC moved from individual factory-specific databases to a modern single MES system shared by all factories and delivered as a service.  

Focus on manufacturing efficiency

PAROC is using the SyncMES software to manage its manufacturing process from the preparation and smelting of raw material to the curing, cooling and packaging of the stonewool fiber mat. The product structures and recipes included in the MES system also cover the use of binders for binder coating. In addition, quality management measures and quality control are integral parts of the MES system.

SyncMES enables PAROC to have consistent operations throughout its factories. The production situation, for example, can be checked in real time from anywhere, in the language chosen by the user.

Data collection from different stages of production is largely automated. New products and new production lines can be launched easily and much faster than before. It is also important for PAROC that the MES platform does not place restrictions on organizational or production changes required for business development.

The partnership with Syncron Tech has shown that a production-critical MES system can be delivered as a reliable browser-based cloud service.

"Our international manufacturing operations require a versatile, flexible and reliable MES system as well as a highly competent partner. Syncron Tech and SyncMES meet these requirements. Development ideas are transformed into viable solutions through smooth cooperation. We are very happy with our partnership."
