PANDORA will implement Quintiq for tactical and operational production planning in its three crafting facilities in Thailand, where over 95% of their jewelry was produced in 2017. The Quintiq solution will enable PANDORA to optimize its production planning, which will play a key role in improving utilization of existing and future production capacity, and increase productivity.
“With Quintiq’s advanced planning system supporting our capacity expansion program, we will be able to scale up manufacturing capacity, increase our efficiency and increase agility to satisfy the demands of our valued customers,” said Thomas Touborg, SVP Group Operations of PANDORA.
New production capabilities to support retail expansion and increased demand
It is a constant challenge for PANDORA to meet the demand from its increasing number of retail stores. The company added 376 concept stores last year, bringing the total to over 2,400 stores. It recently launched its Chinese eSTORE, together with Tmall.com by China’s Alibaba Group.
PANDORA produces more than 120,000,000 pieces of jewelry yearly distributed across approximately 1,500 designs and launches more than 500 new designs every year to fulfil product campaigns and seasonal demand. The Quintiq solution will optimize utilization of production equipment as well as human resources by ensuring that the specialized craftsmen have the correct mix of skills to execute the planned production. The solution will provide the agility needed to achieve high utilization and on-time delivery while considering peaks in seasonal customer demand. By doing so, Quintiq will support PANDORA in significantly reducing production lead time enabling them to serve the market with exciting new products faster, keeping up with demand spikes and build customer interest in its modern jewelry.
“We are proud to work with a global brand like PANDORA,” said Rob van Egmond, Quintiq CEO. “Quintiq will support PANDORA’s growth and market ambitions with a solution that aligns with its lean production efforts and can scale up to meet increasing demand. We are confident that PANDORA will soon be reaping the business benefits of its strategic capacity expansion program.”
PANDORA designs, manufactures and markets hand-finished and contemporary jewelry made from high-quality materials at affordable prices. PANDORA jewelry is sold in more than 100 countries on six continents through approximately 7,800 points of sale, including more than 2,400 concept stores.
Founded in 1982 and headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, PANDORA employs more than 27,300 people worldwide of whom approximately 13,200 are located in the three crafting facilities in Thailand, where the company manufactures all its jewelry. PANDORA is publicly listed on the NASDAQ Copenhagen stock exchange in Denmark. In 2017, PANDORA’s total revenue was DKK 22.8 billion (approximately EUR 3.1 billion).

Greene Tweed Receives Patent for Rapid Gas Decompression-Resistant Fluoroelastomers and Molded Articles24.10.2018 00:00 | Tiedote
The U.S. Patent Office has awarded Greene Tweed Patent Number 10,011,690 for Rapid Gas Decompression-Resistant Fluoroelastomer Compositions and Molded Articles. The innovative elastomer technology was developed by a team that included inventor Ron Campbell, PhD, Principal Scientist and Technology Leader for Elastomers in Greene Tweed’s Advanced Technology Group, to provide a competitive advantage in the Energy market and expand technology protected under a previous patent. Rapid gas decompression (RGD) often occurs when high-pressure gas molecules migrate into an elastomer at a compressed state. When the pressure surrounding the elastomer is suddenly released, the compressed gas inside the elastomer tries to expand and exit the elastomer, thus causing RGD (also known as explosive decompression). Most elastomers experience severe blistering or cracking when the force of these expanding gases overcome the strength of the surrounding material; however, materials engineered to withstand RG
Morinaga Milk Study Suggests Infant-Type Human-Residential Bifidobacteria May Benefit Infant Health by Improving Digestion of Peptides in Milk and Grains23.10.2018 21:00 | Tiedote
Scientists at Morinaga Milk Industry Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:2264) have long theorized that Human-Residential Bifidobacteria (HRB) are superior to non-Human-Residential Bifidobacteria (non-HRB) in promoting good health outcomes. The results of a new study strengthen the evidence for this theory, showing that infant-type HRB may be able to break down incompletely digested peptides in the infants’ gastrointestinal systems and thus contribute to their overall health.

myPOS Founder Christo Georgiev Announces Two Upcoming myPOS Stores in Barcelona and Paris23.10.2018 19:22 | Tiedote
Christo Georgiev, fintech entrepreneur and founder of myPOS, has confirmed his intention to open two new flagship stores in major European cities by the end of the year. The opening is part of an initiative to bring the product closer to potential customers, giving them a hands-on experience and a live demonstration of what myPOS has to offer. The two new stores will be opened in Barcelona, Spain and Paris, France – two of the most important markets for myPOS. “Our Spanish and French customers have always placed a tremendous amount of trust in us, and we in turn have worked hard to justify it,” Georgiev says. “Opening physical locations in Barcelona and Paris is an extension of that relationship. It’s important to test a product with your own hands before you choose to trust it, and if that’s true for TVs and phones why can’t it apply to POS terminals?” The Barcelona store will open as soon as November, followed shortly by the Paris one before the end of the year. myPOS has already ope
