Neucel Specialty Cellulose’s manufacturing operations in Port Alice, B.C. and its headquarters in Richmond, B.C., have successfully started up a new integrated business software product for sales order processing (SOP) and the manufacturing execution system (MES) from MAJIQ.

Neucel manufactures a number of dissolving woodpulp grades and supplies these products to markets around the world.

The project automates business management functions which were largely handled by manual procedures with spreadsheet-based tools. MAJIQ’s PTMS provides to Neucel current, integrated systems that greatly improve the efficiency of customer service, logistics and operations personnel while providing timely, accurate, complete and relevant business intelligence data.

John Schroeder, vice-president supply chain for Neucel, says: “We needed to modernize our information systems and improve the speed and effectiveness of communications among all our sales, operations and financial staff. Since I had used the PTMS system in a previous pulp manufacturing company, I was confident that PTMS would meet the requirements of our demanding dissolving woodpulp lines. The MAJIQ team met our expectations, and the system has assisted us significantly in the achievement of our

performance improvement goals.”

Steve Latham, president of MAJIQ, notes that some of Neucel’s functional requirements are exclusive to dissolving grades. “PTMS is uniquely tailored to pulp operations yet flexible enough to meet a wide variety of specific pulp mill footprints. PTMS will meet Neucel’s SOP and MES needs for years to come.”
