Swiss undies maker Triumph looks to BT for WAN services
Triumph’s ‘Daring Temptation’ range: BT is providing "support" to the Swiss firm
Triumph, a Swiss manufacturer of lingerie, underwear and ‘shape wear’ for women and men, has chosen BT to connect its expanding network of production sites and shops with the company’s headquarters in Bad Zurzach, Switzerland.
Under the agreement, BT says it will significantly enhance network performance, enabling Triumph to communicate and collaborate faster and more efficiently at 56 sites in 44 countries.
Martin Hölscher, CIO at Triumph, said "This agreement builds on a very successful collaboration with BT that spans more than eight years and will help us grow both in Switzerland and internationally. Reliable and secure connectivity is at the centre of our global operations, ensuring smooth production and in-time distribution of our products."
Founded in 1886, Triumph is privately owned and managed by members of the fifth generation of the two founding families. The company is represented in more than 120 countries with manufacturing facilities in ten countries. BT has been providing Triumph with global Wide Area Network (WAN) services since 2003.
Olivier Campenon, BT president EMEA, said "I am very proud of our long term partnership with one of the best-known Swiss brands. Triumph is succeeding in the fast paced fashion industry, and networked IT services are of key importance to their competitiveness. BT is fully committed to continue supporting Triumph in the same way we support all our Swiss-based multinational enterprise customers."
