Exclusive cooperation between Coperion and inconso

The Materials Handling Competence Center of Coperion, formerly Coperion Waeschle, has signed a mutually exclusive cooperation agreement with inconso AG, Bad Nauheim, Germany.

Coperion has therefore now extended its comprehensive range of services for the plastics manufacturing, plastics compounding and plastics processing industries by logistics management systems for further distribution of the goods.

Through this cooperation with inconso AG, Coperion offers its customers solutions from one single source, covering all process stages along the process chain from the reactor through to shipping logistics, including the logistics management system. The increasing demands to be met by plastics manufacturers regarding product logistics flexibility and also the transparency and documentability of goods flows to the works for subsequent processes are fully satisfied.

The “warehouse-management” systems from inconso AG permit reliable identification of all product flows and consignments from production through to shipping, including all relevant data for production and quality, management and warehouse optimisation through to order picking and shipping of individual customer orders.

Due to a standardised and certified SAP interface it is possible to integrate direct communication with a higher-level ERP system if necessary. Plant operators therefore have online access to all current inventory data for production and sales purposes.

Coperion is the international market and technology leader in compounding systems, bulk materials handling systems and services. Coperion designs, develops, manufactures and maintains systems, machines and components for the plastics, chemicals, food and aluminium industries. With its three Competence Centers – Compounding & Extrusion, Materials Handling, Service – and over 30 sales and service companies, Coperion achieves annual sales of over 600 million euros worldwide and has a total work force of 2,100 employees.

Inconso AG is the leading consulting and software company for logistics solutions in Germany.
