Hunton Fiber, a leading producer of building materials based on wooden fibre, has chosen Visolit as its new partner on Cloud. Visolit will modernize and transform Hunton`s IT-platform to Microsoft Azure. The agreement also includes cloud-based end-user services (Microsoft365) and other infrastructure.
-We are proud to be the preferred partner on Cloud for a company with long traditions and forward-thinking acumen. The agreement strengthens Visolit`s role as a leading provider of Cloud-solutions to the industry, with both Borregaard and Hunton as new customers recently, says CEO of Visolit, Terje Mjøs.
-The Wood processing industry is changing, both in terms of technology and digitalization, but also in terms of solutions and way of work. By investing in modern Cloud-platforms and working alongside solid partners like Visolit, we are strengthening our competitive edge. The world is increasingly in demand of green products, enabling strong growth potential for the use of locally produced sustainable wooden products, says Managing Director of Hunton, Arne Jebsen.
Visolit has implemented a Cloud-based data centre in Microsoft Azure, with modern security solutions for increased production capacity and security in connection with the important factory control systems. In addition, Visolit will modernize the infrastructure and establish new services to enable Hunton`s use of modern platform services like data warehouse and Business Intelligence-solutions.
- Innovation and development are high on Hunton`s agenda, and we are always looking for ways to improve and optimize business decisions. Digitized data solutions provide great effects in the whole process from purchasing of wooden chips to delivery of our products and solutions to our customers. Together with Visolit, we are strengthening the capacity in our networks and the quality of our own data, as well as increasing the security, says Karen Ristebråten, Head of IT and digital development at Hunton.
-Hunton has both a proud history as well as an exciting future. Visolit`s Cloud expertise combined with Hunton`s strong competencies in the utilization of wood pulp, enable us to find solutions that contribute to innovation and development of the business. We look forward to further strengthening Hunton through our partnership, says Mjøs.
