S&B Industrial Minerals AD

S&B Industrial Minerals is part of the economic group S&B Industrial Minerals S.A.

Established in 1951 today S&B Industrial Minerals S.A. is a specialty minerals mining and processing company with extensive resources and significant market shares in its major products of bentonite, perlite and bauxite, as well as a palette of traded products for the glass and ceramics industries. S&B is based in Athens, Greece and owns 48 mines, plants and distribution centres in more than 15 countries in Europe, Asia and North America. S&B is the largest bentonite in Europe and the largest supplier of graded perlite worldwide. In 2002, S&B had consolidated sales of 291,3 million Euro and earnings before taxes reached 26.2 million Euro.

The main reasons behind the company’s decision to implement an ERP solution were the urge to integrate different information flows, to optimise the management of purchases and supplies and to achieve detailed information in the process of planning and management of the production processes.

The ERP solution manages all processes related to accounting, fixed assets, sales, storing, manufacturing, supplies. Additional HR and payroll modules were implemented at a later stage.

In 2012 the ERP software was updated to version NAV 2009 and its capabilities were further extended. The additional functionalities include new monthly close, distribution of the indirect production cost with improved expense tracking, option for distribution of future expenses, reporting and entering of data and parameters of different production centres.

The actual benefits which S&B Industrial Minerals achieved by using the ERP system include:

• Significant improvement of the communication with the sales department
• Optimization of the management of the huge volume of intra-company transactions
• Significantly decreasing the time needed for generating different reports for the purposes of management and production planning as well as specific reports required by the mother-company
• The companies from the S&B Industrial Minerals group are now able to submit and track the status of their orders directly into the system
