THAILAND: Seafood exporter Kingfisher selects Intentia’s Movex
Kingfisher Holdings Ltd. of Thailand, a global leading seafood exporter and the pioneer of what is now the largest tuna exporting industry in the world, has selected Intentia's Movex Food and Beverage collaborative enterprise application to streamline its supply chain.
The contract, worth approximately €500,000 (US$491,000), will support 4,000 employees across Kingfisher's operations in Thailand.
Kingfisher will use Movex Food and Beverage to support core business processes in the areas of enterprise resource planning, supply chain management, customer relationship management and business performance measurement. Movex will be implemented at Kingfisher's main operations, which include the company's Seapac, Frozen, and Canning operations.
Established in 1972, Kingfisher is credited with starting the Thai tuna industry. Today the company has diversified to include the manufacturing of cans, production of canned pet food and a range of premium frozen seafood products, as well as innovative canned and pouch value-added lines. In 1990, Maruha Corporation of Japan, one of the biggest seafood enterprises in the world, joined Kingfisher as a shareholder. Since then, Kingfisher has had better access to the Japanese market and raw material sources around the world. Over the past 30 years, Kingfisher has earned a worldwide reputation for premium fish and marine products. Kingfisher sells its products domestically as well as for export to the Americas, the Asia Pacific region, Europe and the Middle East.
Kingfisher joins a number of other food and beverage companies that have chosen Movex, including A. Clouet, Bangkok Ranch, Cerebos, Cuisine de France, Carlsberg, DeliFrance, Fisher Frozen Foods, Gerber Foods, Kerrygold, Lam Soon, Malaysia Milk, Miranda Wines, New Zealand King Salmon, Pripps/Ringnes, Procordia Foods, Pernod, Rosemount Estates, San Remo, Sunshine Bakeries, Siam Foods and Thai Pineapple.
