Kinnerton Confectionery Selects Aras Enterprise PLM

 U.K.’s Leading Producer of Chocolate and Custom Confectionery Chooses Aras to Drive Productivity, Improve Efficiency and Optimize New Product Development

ANDOVER, Mass. and Munich, Germany – July 10, 2012Aras®, the leading enterprise open source Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software solution provider, today announced that Kinnerton Confectionery, Britain’s largest independent manufacturer of chocolate and novelty confectionery, has selected Aras enterprise PLM to drive productivity, improve efficiency and optimize product development. The Aras PLM solution suite will support Kinnerton’s large and diverse product portfolio through their Concept to Launch Process, workflow and process management, and product costing.

Kinnerton Confectionery specializes in character merchandising and produces private label and novelty confectionery for Britain’s largest retailers as well as many famous brands. Committed to innovation and never standing still, the company produced 20 million Easter eggs in 2012 and develops more than 400 new products a year.

“We were looking for a solution that would streamline our new product development process and enable us to release new products into production on time.  We also needed to move away from a multitude of documents to a single accurate source of product information and we wanted to be able to track the status of projects and deliverables against defined processes,” said Matthew Davies, Programme Manager at Kinnerton.

“Aras Innovator is the platform that enables us to meet these objectives,” continued Davies.  “The technology is very flexible and does not require large investment in specialized technical resources to deploy.  I had previously associated PLM systems with engineering-based industries but we have found that PLM is highly appropriate to any CPG (consumer packaged goods) and Food and Beverage companies that are engaged in product development”.

“Like many food and beverage companies, Kinnerton must manage very complex custom processes and short seasonal product cycles while maintaining extremely stringent health, regulatory and compliance requirements. Aras’s unique combination of advanced functionality and highly flexible, easy to use technology provides Kinnerton and companies like it with a strategic competitive advantage in a highly competitive market,” said Peter Schroer, President of Aras.
