Performance Fibers Inc., Colonial Heights, Va., has selected Miami-based Adjoined Consulting Inc.
to deploy, manage and host its enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. As part of the
arrangement, Adjoined will provide SAP application services, strategic consulting, hosting and
disaster recovery in a flexible environment. A three-phased approach will be used that initially
will validate and refine existing functionality developed prior to Performance Fibers divestiture
from Honeywell International in December 2004. Later phases will include introducing the
environment to Performance Fibers operations in China and Korea.
“As we continue to grow as global leaders in providing advanced fiber technologies post
acquisition, it was critical that we identified a partner who had a proven integration methodology
and experience in performing divestiture engagements for similar clients,” said James Napolitan,
vice president, information technology, Performance Fibers. “It was evident that due to Adjoined’s
know-how, dedicated resources and support capabilities, we could meet our implementation timeline
without compromising the superior level of service we provide to our customers.”
