Information technology (IT) services firm Tech Mahindra has signed a contract to build a digital roadmap for Helsinki- based sustainable fibre solutions company Ahlstrom-Munksjö using SAP’s S/4HANA. 

S/4HANA is German technology giant SAP's enterprise resource planning (ERP) for large businesses. 

“Tech Mahindra has been our partner in the major IT transformation that we have been carrying out in Ahlstrom-Munksjö in the past six years. They are supporting us on many levels, from enabling strategy implementation to aligning business process management and securing business,” Kristiina Lammila, chief information officer, Ahlstrom-Munksjö, said in a statement.

The companies said that this was one of the largest programmes for SAP’s S/4HANA-based ERP globally for business support and transformation. 

Tech Mahindra added that this collaboration is aligned with its TechMNxt charter, which focuses on leveraging next-generation technologies such as cybersecurity, artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, 5G and internet of things (IoT) to disrupt and enable digital transformation, and to build cutting-edge technology solutions and services for customers globally.

Founded in 2017 after a merger of Ahlstrom and Munksjö Oyj, Ahlstrom-Munksjö is a global company that makes fibre-based products such as decor papers, filters, release liners, abrasive backings and non-woven fabrics. It claims to have annual net sales of about €3 billion. The company employs nearly 8,000 people. The Ahlstrom-Munksjö share is listed on Nasdaq Helsinki and Stockholm.
