Sydney, Australia— Citect Corp. recently formed a five-year global purchase agreement with world-leading aluminum producer Alcoa Inc. The agreement includes Alcoa's adoption of Citect's software and systems as a worldwide standard. Sales of licenses and support is expected to total more than $5 million Australian dollars (AUD) over the five-year period.
Already implemented at several of Alcoa's facilities in the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Australia, the agreement also calls for Citect's solutions to be installed at additional sites as Alcoa replaces and upgrades its legacy plant control systems. Standardizing on Citect solutions will enable Alcoa to increase reliability across all of its locations, resulting in improved productivity, and reduced risk and total cost of ownership.
'This agreement elevates the seven-year relationship between Alcoa and Citect to a new level, where closer collaboration and shared knowledge and expertise will deliver improvements, not only to production processes, but also to the business as a whole,' says Wayne Morris, Citect's CEO and MD.
