Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has selected Infonet Services Corp. for its networking and expansion requirements, using a customized version of The World Network from Infonet.
After a series of acquisitions, Cooper found that its existing structure did not provide the comprehensive support required to manage a network that had grown to 55 locations in 13 countries. To effectively address performance objectives, Cooper wanted one centralized network provider to manage its networking processes outside the United States.
"Solutions by several providers were considered," said Cooper spokeswoman Loren W. Wagner. "But Infonet's global presence, its ability to provide in-country support, and its willingness to work with our other major supplier demonstrated its flexibility and commitment necessary for customer success."
