Jotun grows with IFS

With 40 production facilities around the globe and a market presence in over 100 countries, Jotun is a truly multi-national company. Expertise in four specialist paint and coatings segments has fueled impressive growth—and with it the need to manage complex and diverse operations across multiple segments and geographies.

Jotun began working with IFS in 2003, initially implementing IFS components for financials, manufacturing, logistics management, procurement and maintenance in its Scandinavian operations. Since this successful introduction, it has steadily expanded its use of IFS to support and optimize business-critical processes to more than 30 countries worldwide.
