GTT Communications, a cloud networking provider to multinational clients, has announced that Europac Group, a long-standing client of its recent Interoute acquisition, is deploying GTT’s SD-WAN service to enhance network performance for its European sites.
Europac, one of the most innovative manufacturers of sustainable packaging in Europe, leverages GTT’s extensive network in Europe to connect its 18 paper and packaging factories and six waste management facilities in Spain, France and Portugal. GTT’s high-performance, reliable cloud networking services support Europac in its drive to streamline its operations and processes across the entire value chain of the packaging industry.
GTT’s SD-WAN helps to optimize performance for Europac’s applications and services that operate in a centralized cloud architecture, enabling Europac to even more effectively implement its supply chain strategy, manage change in its manufacturing operations and drive greater competitive advantage. GTT also supports all of Europac’s business divisions with an enterprise voice over IP (VoIP) platform, from its data center in Madrid.
David Casas, head of infrastructure and communications at the Europac Group, commented, “GTT’s network and communications services enable us to accelerate and support the integration of our internal operations across Europe. SD-WAN adds flexibility and allows us to optimize our network to support our cloud-based applications, which is a fundamental aspect of the company’s digital strategy.”
GTT president and CEO Rick Calder said: “GTT is redefining global communications to serve clients such as Europac.
“We help our clients connect people across their organizations, around the world and to every application in the cloud.”
The Europac Group was formed in 1995 and listed on the Madrid stock market three years later. The company has 2,300 employees and operates 18 paper and packaging factories, three energy co-generation centers, and six waste management facilities in southern Europe. Europac is included in the IBEX Medium Cap index and generates annual revenue of EURO1.3 billion.
Europac is the only manufacturer of kraftliner and coated papers in southern Europe, as well as the leading packaging supplier in Portugal, and the fourth-largest in France and the Iberian Peninsula, where it is also the second-largest recovered paper manufacturer.
