Protective clothing and life-jacket maker Hansen Protection has implemented Gerber Technology's YuniquePLM product lifecycle management solution to manage the design, development and manufacturing of its product lines.

Hansen said it chose the YuniquePLM system to support its growing business by helping to streamline it supply chain processes from beginning to end.

Frithjof Kylstad, vice president of operations said: "As our business is growing, we needed a user-friendly solution to help us streamline our supply chain processes from beginning to end. YuniquePLM will enable us to get full visibility into the progress of our projects from design through production."

Based in Norway, Hansen Protection creates and develops standard and custom-made hi-tech textile products such as survival clothing lines for protective clothing and life-jackets for seafarers.
