Hoehr-Grenzhausen, 17th August 2011 - Neunkirchen am Brand in Bavaria has been a
source of axles and transmissions for construction, forestry and agricultural
applications for the last 50 years. Neunkirchener Achsenfabrik AG (NAF) is
market leader in bogie axles and currently employs approximately 450 members of
personnel in Central Europe, Russia and North America. The majority of the
company's workforce, approximately 430 members of personnel, are employed at the
company's German plant in Neunkirchen am Brand. Service and sales offices can
also be found in Russia and North America, with 3 employees based at each site.
The company also has a construction and development centre in Munich, which
employs 14 members of personnel.  

The company's turnover amounted to 92 million EUR in 2010.

NAF has extremely high quality requirements of its products. Its axles and gears
are in continuous operation across the globe, under highly diverse climatic
conditions, often 24 hours a day, all year round. Constant use and minimal
downtime ensure the high degree of added value required by engines and machines.
Where downtime does occur, NAF immediately initiates a defect/error diagnosis
and damage analysis, along with the respective repair measures.

"We have opted for the IBS AG quality management solution in order to further
improve our products and avoid wastage and defects. IBS is replacing the
solution of a direct competitor with its holistic, integrated quality management
system that is able to fulfil all our requirements", says Ralf Sauer, Chief
Executive Officer of NAF. Mr. Sauer believes the main benefit potentials to lie
in improved quality and lower costs. The "visualisation" and evaluation of
production data enables short reaction times and a clear reduction in cycle
times.

"NAF will profit from our long-standing market experience, which spans almost 30
years in the field of Best Practice software solutions for quality management.
We are in the comfortable position of being able to offer NAF an integrated
solution for its requirements", says Volker Schwickert, Executive Vice President
and Director of Sales and Marketing at IBS AG. "IBS AG's cross-company quality
management system and each of its cross-industry applications use the latest
technology to support the planning, acquisition, documentation and evaluation of
all relevant quality data - from the product development to product manufacture
and product acceptance and test", adds Mr. Schwickert.
