McInnis Cement:  Innovative Business Model with SAP S/4HANA


Customers of McInnis Cement can be confident that the cement they buy has one of the smallest ecological footprints in the industry. The Québec plant, expected to reach commercial operation by spring 2017, meets the most stringent environmental standards and will produce 2.2 to 2.5 million metric tons of cement per year. Applying a customer-centered business model in this very traditional, rapidly consolidating industry, McInnis needed a proven business technology solution that it could implement quickly and effectively.


SAP S/4HANA offered McInnis high performance at a low cost and a simple implementation to support its lean IT staff. The speed and visibility enabled by the

software are key to McInnis’s ability to disrupt the global marketplace, evolve its business, and remain flexible for its customers.
