Lüneburg, Germany, March 18, 2015 – As one of the largest Arabian pharmaceutical manufacturing companies, SPIMACO has opted for PAS-X, the leading Manufacturing Execution System (MES) by Werum IT Solutions. The company will operate PAS-X as a full-blown MES at their main manufacturing plant in Qassim, Saudi Arabia, where they produce pharmaceutical products for the Middle East and also for North Africa.

SPIMACO required an IT system for controlling and documenting their manufacturing processes. They were looking for a system that enjoys a high level of acceptance in the pharmaceutical industry and complies with all requirements by the national and international regulatory authorities. Another crucial factor for SPIMACO’s decision was that in addition to the PAS-X software product, Werum also offers pre-configured PAS-X Content Packages including GMP-compliant templates.

“Especially the process libraries based on industry standards will tremendously reduce implementation time and efforts,” says Moin Ul Haq, Business Application Manager, SPIMACO. “PAS-X will help us to capture the real-time production activities and to reduce the batch review time by 40%.”

PAS-X will be the second largest system in SPIMACO’s IT landscape and it will be integrated with SAP, the core business system at SPIMACO.
