Proving that good things come to those who perform, supply-chain technology provider Advanced Data Exchange (ADX) has garnered new business from Owens Corning following the success of a smaller project it did for the building materials manufacturer. ADX, an integration solutions company based in Newark, Calif., has received an extension to its contract with Owens Corning that will see it provide supply-chain connectivity services to more than 2,100 of the manufacturer's suppliers. In 2002 ADX connected Owens Corning to more than 200 of its suppliers. Now ADX will work with the next phase of suppliers to enable them to trade electronically with Owens Corning via the ADX Network. "Owens Corning had four major goals when we launched this project: hard-dollar cost reductions, supply-chain visibility, business process integration and a common, standardized process for all vendors," explains Jim Hawkins, e-sourcing process leader at Owens Corning. "Our phase one supplier-integration program with ADX exceeded its goals in each of these areas."
