Houston, TX – April 29, 2019

Operational Sustainability, LLC announced today that MFG Chemical, a global leader in specialty and custom chemical manufacturing, will be implementing eight modules from the comprehensive OESuite platform later this year. MFG is underpinning a major improvement program for information and workflow management through the implementation of OESuite® with the goal of improving management systems related to process safety, employee training, and key compliance workflows.

"We welcome MFG to our user community, and we look forward to helping them enhance compliance assurance, while managing their operational risks," said David Drerup, CEO of Operational Sustainability. "Our implementation templates and technical content were key differentiators for MFG because they enable rapid deployment versus a more traditional configuration approach."

MFG Chemical Director of EHS&S Joe Welch said, "We learned about OESuite® through our affiliation with SOCMA. After demonstrations of modules by multiple service providers, we saw that MFG could continue building on our success and reach an even higher level of operations and EHS excellence utilizing this platform. We are excited about the capabilities this system will bring to our continuous improvement efforts." MFG plans to utilize OESuite to assess and mitigate risk, and enhance organizational alignment to improve production operations, maintenance activities, and employee safety.

"As we begin our partnership, we celebrate MFG, their commitment to Operational Excellence, and their choice of OS as their partner to achieve those outcomes," Drerup said.

Keith Arnold, President and CEO of MFG Chemical and member of the SOCMA Board of Governors, said, "This new program is another good investment in MFG Chemical's future."
