Schott Chooses HP for Technology Infrastructure Management Services to Support Manufacturer’s Global Growth
Stockholm, June 20, 2011 – Hewlett-Packard Germany GmbH today announced that SCHOTT AG, a multinational company that develops and produces specialty glass and other materials, has renewed its outsourcing services agreement with HP for an additional five years.
With the new agreement, HP will continue delivering Utility Services to enable SCHOTT to maintain its global growth in an efficient and cost efficient way. HP has provided technology services for SCHOTT since 2004.
“To achieve our growth goals, it is critical to have processes and technology infrastructure in place to support our expansion into new countries and regions,” said Andreas Beeres, vice president corporate information technology for SCHOTT. “In addition to our long-standing relationship, HP’s global reach as well as the team’s deep technology and manufacturing industry understanding will help us create a ‘one-IT’ technology strategy within SCHOTT.”
HP will continue to manage and operate SCHOTT’s technology infrastructure in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and, with the new agreement, expand service delivery to support part of its worldwide operations.
Services HP delivers include Data Center Services to manage the company’s IT infrastructure and Network Management Services to remotely manage and monitor the company’s LAN/WAN environment. HP supplies Workplace Services for 4,500 users in Germany (desktop PCs, laptops, printers and handheld devices) as well as centrally controlled services for worldwide usage.
HP also provides Application Management Services and manages the company’s enterprise resource planning platform with SAP.
“Operating and expanding internationally in the manufacturing industry requires careful planning and an efficient supply chain backed by a scalable and reliable technology infrastructure,” said Michael Eberhardt, vice president HP Enterprise Services and managing director of HP GmbH. “We will continue supporting SCHOTT’s global growth strategy with our portfolio and scale to help the company expand in an efficient and agile way.”
