Activplant Corporation Announces Global Agreement with GlaxoSmithKline
Date:2/10/2009

Industry Leaders Team up to Drive Performance Improvements World Wide

LONDON, Ontario, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Activplant Corporation (www.activplant.com) announced today that GlaxoSmithKline PLC (GSK) has signed a global framework agreement naming Activplant as a recommended business intelligence solution for their world wide manufacturing sites.

The agreement comes after a successful implementation where GSK experienced the ease of use that empowers operators, engineers and management to positively affect their OEE, and consequently, their production costs. Activplant's Throughput Analyzer software product is currently implemented within key GSK facilities in North America and the UK.

"Once we saw how quickly Activplant's Throughput Analyzer could be implemented and drive results in our facility in North Carolina, we felt that it made sense to negotiate a global framework agreement to reduce complexity where our facilities wish to consider implementing OEE projects," said Julian Ward, GSK's application champion. "Over the next 3 months our aim is to achieve a 5% improvement in OEE on the lines running Throughput Analyzer and, with what we have seen to date, we feel we'll improve throughput and efficiencies across all lines where we implement the solution."

"Today's global manufacturing landscape is becoming increasingly competitive and complex. It is critical for manufacturers to arm themselves with real-time operations intelligence facilitating improved decision making and driving a reduction in operating costs," states Activplant President, Drew Forret. "We are thrilled to add GSK as a valued business partner. They are a recognized leader in the Pharmaceutical and Consumer Healthcare sectors, both of which have played an important role in Activplant's continued growth strategy."
