Commodity Management BlogInnovative Ideas and Thought Leadership for Volatile Commodity Marketplace
I’m excited to share the news that Triple Point has acquired WAM Systems, the premier provider of supply chain planning and optimization solutions for the process industry.
WAM has an impressive presence in the chemical industry, and its solutions are also beginning to see adoption within other process industry segments including oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, CPG, and food and beverage. WAM’s worldwide customer base includes leading companies such as PTT Global Chemical, Saudi Aramco, Celanese Chemicals, LyondellBasell, Honam Petrochemical, Indian Oil, PetroChina, Sasol Oil, and Solvay.
Like Triple Point’s previous acquisitions, the WAM acquisition furthers Triple Point’s commitment to having the most comprehensive, advanced solutions for handling all the financial and physical aspects of Commodity Management. Softmar was acquired for its superior chartering and vessel operations solution, and QMASTOR for its exceptional coal and mineral supply chain solutions. Acquiring WAM – the premier provider of process industry supply chain solutions – made perfect sense as a next step.
The process industry is facing many challenges including extreme raw material price volatility and increasingly complex global supply chains. This business environment mandates that process manufacturing companies leverage advanced technology solutions to ensure efficient and profitable operations. With the acquisition of WAM, Triple Point now offers the only Commodity Management solution that optimizes all the physical and financial supply chain complexities that process manufacturing companies deal with on a daily basis.
