Minerals Technologies Supports Global Expansion and Improves Competitive Advantage with Cloud Application Suite
Minerals Technologies Inc. is a resource- and technology-based company that develops, produces, and markets worldwide a broad range of specialty mineral, mineral-based, and synthetic mineral products, and related systems and services. The company has five segments: specialty minerals, refractories, performance materials, construction technologies, and energy services.
Minerals Technologies acquired AMCOL International Corporation and thus needed to integrate the IT Systems of the two companies. Other challenges were to provide visibility into the financial, manufacturing and logistics data globally while simultaneously reducing IT complexity.
