Silicon Valley, CA, October 12, 2006 - Pelyco Systems, a global provider of web-based supply chain visibility solutions, today announced that Swagelok, a major developer and manufacturer of fluid system component technologies, is achieving exceptional business value and supply chain visibility, following the successful implementation of Pelyco's webPUBLISH™, at their Solon, Ohio location. webPUBLISH is helping Swagelok to speed up and simplify their supply chain planning processes, and help position them for future growth.

Recognized as a visionary company for executing superior business strategies and technologies, Swagelok selected webPUBLISH to augment their i2® system and heighten their supply chain forecasting and planning efficiency. With advanced supply chain visibility, Swagelok is now able to leverage their existing data assets and optimize the planning and scheduling process of their world class integrated supply chain. The swift implementation of webPUBLISH, and easy integration to i2 Factory Planner (FP) and Supply Chain Planner (SCP), provided Swagelok with immediate value by delivering the information visibility they need to effectively plan, respond, and execute.

Swagelok Company manufactures high-quality fluid systems components and connection technologies at more than 25 research, manufacturing, and product distribution facilities in North America, Europe, and Asia. Founded in 1947 in Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A., Swagelok has grown into a first class global manufacturer and emerging e-business leader in the industrial manufacturing sector.

Swagelok® products are designed to meet exacting requirements in industrial processes ranging from research, instrumentation, pharmaceutical, dairy, and food and beverage production to oil and gas, power generation, petrochemical processing, and semiconductor manufacturing.

Swagelok needed a web-based supply chain visibility solution that would enable us to quickly and seamlessly integrate with our i2 Factory Planner and Supply Chain Planner and provide easy and timely access to critical information. webPUBLISH cuts through the complexity of planning and scheduling data, and has achieved major productivity and efficiency improvements in those critical areas of at Swagelok.
