SYDNEY -- a manufacturer of resins for coatings, adhesives, paper and composites, and a distributor of a broad range of functional materials -- has selected Verizon Business to consolidate the management of its global data infrastructure. The company will implement a fully managed Verizon Private IP solution to connect its 30 key operational sites across Asia Pacific, Europe and the United States.

Nuplex has expanded rapidly over recent years, and today employs nearly 1,700 people in 14 countries, with manufacturing plants in New Zealand, Australia, Europe, Asia and North America. As the company has grown, its network infrastructure had become increasingly complex and costly to run. The number of disparate systems in place also made it difficult for Nuplex to roll out new applications to support its business objectives. The company therefore decided to consolidate its global network infrastructure with a single provider to both optimise cost efficiencies and provide a firm foundation for future growth.

The fully managed Verizon Private IP solution provides a secure, reliable, resilient and scalable infrastructure for Nuplex’s business-critical communications. It provides a high-quality voice and data communications environment to support Nuplex’s communications needs as the company moves toward IP-enabled applications. With Private IP, Nuplex is able to prioritise its voice and data traffic to optimise network performance, and Verizon Business’ stringent service level agreements and reporting mechanisms provide real-time information on global network status. Most importantly, as Verizon Business provides full managed-services support, Nuplex is able to focus on its own business objectives, rather than the complexities of network management.

Stuart Barry, CIO Nuplex Australia and New Zealand, said: “We chose to work with Verizon Business because of the company’s global reach, strong regional focus and technical management capabilities. The company demonstrated a clear understanding of our business needs, and provided a best-fit solution that could support our objectives today and in the future. Using a single global service provider is not only more cost-effective, it also allows us to focus on our business, rather than our infrastructure. We look forward to realising the benefits of Verizon Private IP as our global network expands.”

Andrew Dobbins, regional vice president, Asia Pacific, Verizon Business, said: "Customers growing their business around the world are increasingly demanding robust, secure network solutions that will deliver advanced business-critical applications. Verizon Business has been able to implement an easily scalable solution to support Nuplex’s growth, as well as provide greater visibility into network performance.”
