Issues and challenges

Polynt-Reichhold is a leading provider of chemical composites used in the production of plastics, paints, inks and adhesives as well as electrical and electronic materials and components. The 2017 merger with U.S. chemical company Reichhold led to the need for a new global network that would fully support the rapidly growing business.

Innovation is at the heart of the company’s success, and the merger of Polynt and the Reichhold Group created many new opportunities for growth. However, innovation relies on the rapid exchange of ideas and insights among people often working in different parts of the world. To accelerate and enhance collaboration across the highly distributed organization, a new, single communications network was needed.

"Developing a global WAN with Orange Business Services will allow us to gain central control over our global IT infrastructure and to simplify contract management, making it easier to accelerate integration of new acquisitions to support our global expansion.
"Being able to operate consistent technology at every site is the first step towards aligning our corporate culture everywhere in the world. Orange was the ideal partner in this pursuit, since its global footprint matches our own."

Annamaria Codari, Global IT Director, Polynt
