FLS FertigungsLeitSysteme was founded in Aachen in 1979 by Dr.-Ing. Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing. Hanns Jürgen Hüttner. With the production planning system (PPS) FEKOR for production coordination, FLS has been on the market since that time as a pioneer for production planning and material flow recording (MFE).
Also in 1979, GRP was founded in Aachen, Germany, specializing in process monitoring of the entire shop floor in the manufacturing industry (MES, CAQ, PEP, DNC, PZÜ, TPM, etc.).
In 2010, Manfred Keuters took over GRP as the current managing partner and has been successfully leading it ever since with steady growth, especially on the international market.
The importance of a reliable Manufacturing Execution System (MES System) for production, which controls the growing complexity of today’s requirements, is beyond question. FLS and GRP systems have been successfully used by joint customers for decades and complement each other perfectly.
Since 2016, everything has been offered from a single source in order to further combine the expertise of the two areas. Manfred Keuters (Managing Director of GRP) and Janina Keuters (Managing Director of FLS) will lead both companies into the future. The merger of these two pioneers means that customers will benefit from the long-standing know-how of both systems and that these will be used as an industrial platform in the future.
FLS and GRP systems are used in numerous companies in the plastics, food, engineering, automotive and metal industries. FLS and GRP’s customers include leading global companies such as Eaton, MöllerTech, Hachez, Geberit, AS Tech, Ceralia, Münz-Prägstatt, DELPHI, Brück, P&G, HEWI and Georg Fischer.
