MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, April 20, 2009 - Atrion International continues to build on its success with mid-market and enterprise companies with the addition of several new customers including Teknos Group Oy, Dubois Chemicals, BG Products Inc., Kuwait Petroleum and Champion Technologies. These customers have chosen Atrion's Product Compliance Suite (PCS) to efficiently address REACH and GHS regulatory compliance demands without the need for heavy investments in human resources or highly customized systems. Atrion's PCS is a cost-effective and scalable solution comprised of four suites that automate compliance across the entire Product Life Cycle. All are powered by Atrion's Managed Regulatory Content.
"Atrion's PCS is a consolidated global solution that's helping to relieve some of the regulatory compliance pressures being placed on our business," said Raimo Anjala, CFO at Teknos Group Oy. "The Solution is making it much easier to stay ahead of the compliance curve with the most up-to-date regulatory content available. This will enable us to become much more proactive and agile as a company, and will support our objectives for growth in new markets."
Mr. Anjala also cites Atrion's strategic relationship with IFS as another important consideration in the selection process, "Atrion's PCS integrates with our IFS Applications ERP system. This will allow us to build efficiencies and cost-savings by embedding compliance right into our daily business processes."
Teknos Group Oy is one of Scandinavia's leading suppliers of industrial coatings and a major participant in the retail and architectural paint markets. Group companies operate in Scandinavia, Germany, the United Kingdom, Poland, Slovenia and Russia, and through a well-established network of agents and representatives in about twenty other European countries. "Today's tough economy, coupled with increasingly stringent regulatory requirements, is placing unprecedented barriers to business for many companies in the formula-based process industry," said Joe Cella, VP of Marketing and Partner Programs at Atrion International. "Mid-market companies in particular are being hit the hardest because they don't necessarily have the same resources or capabilities to support these demands as do larger organizations. Atrion's new customers are forward-thinkers in that they've chosen to implement a Product Compliance Solution today in order to level the competitive playing field and position themselves for growth, sooner rather than later."
