Leading Mexican Tile Manufacturer, Interceramic, Deploys Optilogic to Optimize its Supply Chain

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Jan. 23, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The leading supply chain design software innovator Optilogic today announced a strategic partnership with Interceramic, a leader in the manufacturing of tiles in Mexico for over 40 years. The partnership will help Interceramic unlock significant competitive advantages by optimizing its logistics and supply chain, further solidifying it as the definitive leader in the Mexican ceramic tile market.

Headquartered in Mexico, with sales over $600 USD million, the company currently operates 8 manufacturing facilities, over 430 retail sales points in Mexico with more than 5000 employees.

Interceramic's network presents both opportunities and complexities in managing inventory, transportation, and lead times, and its strategic distribution across Mexico requires efficient coordination and resource allocation. In addition, its workforce necessitates streamlined logistics for optimal resource utilization and production flow.

The company's continued growth led Interceramic to consult with supply chain design expert Carlos Portillo Peña of CPP Consulting and select the Optilogic Cosmic Frog supply chain design solution. Using Cosmic Frog's network optimization, inventory simulation, and manufacturing capacity planning capabilities, Interceramic can make smarter decisions around its network structure and create a more intelligent inventory deployment and an optimized manufacturing plan system through its supply chain.

"We have been looking for a solution that can help us more accurately predict market fluctuations and respond to dynamic changes, as well as optimize production planning and resource allocation across our manufacturing facilities," said both Interceramic CIO, Gabriel Grijalva and Felix Salazar, Director of Planning and Logistics. "By minimizing stockouts and overstocking to improve efficiencies and cost effectiveness, we can better streamline our distribution network in Mexico to ensure timely delivery and cost reductions."

Through Optilogic's 100-percent SaaS-based solution, Interceramic will be able to analyze the company's cost to serve under different service level scenarios and get the most optimized options, as well as identifying why service problems occur and evaluate methods to improve by using Cosmic Frog's service level verification feature.

"We are proud to enter a long-term partnership with Interceramic," said Optilogic Senior Vice President Oscar Torres. "By addressing its logistical challenges through strategic modeling and advanced inventory analysis, Interceramic can unlock significant competitive advantages as the company continues to grow."
