packaging solutions, has signed a five-year, managed SD-WAN agreement
with Orange Business Services to support its global expansion. Rolling

IT partner that could also offer local support and solutions for all of
our sites throughout the world. The Flexible SD-WAN solution provides us
with a reliable and agile network to support us during our next phase of
business. Thanks to Orange Business Services, we can focus on the things
we’re good at: developing and producing innovative plastic packaging
solutions,” said Eric den Hertog, Global IT Director at Weener Plastics.

solutions, we are the perfect partner for Weener Plastics’ international
ambitions,” said Fabrice de Windt, Senior Vice President Europe for
