With an emphasis on logistics and supply chain, new team brings decades of experience in enabling digital transformation, business process innovation, and operations.
San Mateo, Calif. (BUSINESS WIRE) — HULFT, a comprehensive data logistics platform, today announced the launch of its new manufacturing practice that will build upon the company’s Japanese manufacturing lineage and supply chain success. HULFT will provide solutions and services to help customers easily bridge the gap between legacy and digital, giving them solutions that they need to capture, aggregate, automate, and transform their data without replacing expensive legacy investments.
With supply chains becoming increasingly networked and data growing more disparate, HULFT will increase investments in repeatable tools and services that enable “outcome-focused” logistics and supply chain management — reduced cost, faster delivery, and improved quality.
HULFT’s dedicated practice includes flexible and scalable data logistics solutions for both process and discrete manufacturing. For process manufacturing, HULFT helps customers manage global supply chain complexities, sourcing of raw materials, quality assurance and product uniformity, recipe conformance and scalability, and more. For discrete manufacturing, HULFT can integrate and streamline all systems and data required to manage the entire production cycle.
HULFT is also bringing on executive hires with dedicated experience within the manufacturing sector to round out its management team and help scale operations. These new hires include Adam Erickson as vice president of sales; Dmitry Dukhan as senior director of digital manufacturing; and Javier Fernandez as principal software engineer.
Adam Erickson, vice president of sales, has been building successful commercialization and go-to-market strategies for nearly 30 years for companies such as NextgenID, Bit Stew Systems (acquired by GE Digital), and Device Authority. He brings in-depth industry experience in manufacturing, supply chain logistics, government, and utilities.
Dmitry Dukhan, senior director of digital manufacturing, joins HULFT after holding leadership roles with Cisco, Link Solutions Group and Pivotal Software, where he established strategic partnerships with leading cloud providers, and spearheaded efforts creating digital products for customers that enabled them to scale across private, public, and hybrid clouds.
Javier Fernandez, principal software engineering, brings to HULFT over 15 years of designing elegant and robust solutions that meet customer needs. Prior to HULFT, Javier was principal systems analyst and IT director for Michigan Technological University.
“The manufacturing industry is facing a crossroads where people, processes, and machines have to adapt in real time,” said Sho Ueda, executive director, Japan Business Society of Detroit. HULFT’s solutions and services are beneficial for the manufacturing industry and HULFT’s participation in the greater Detroit business community is very welcomed.”
“Being a part of Detroit’s thriving business community and understanding, in particular, the manufacturing market both locally and globally enables our growing HULFT team to even better serve our customers with dedicated solutions and services that help manufacturers redefine their business value beyond factory walls. We appreciate our customers and partners who have been a part of HULFT’s momentum and look forward to extending even stronger capabilities to future customers,” said Masahiro Maruyama, president and COO, HULFT, Inc.
