"Russ brings a practical and experienced awareness of contract collaboration to the conference." Tom Leahy, Event Director, Specialty & Agro Chemicals America
Wakefield, Mass. (PRWEB) September 08, 2015
Corridor Company, Inc., the leading provider of contract lifecycle management software powered by the SharePoint platform, is pleased to announce the participation of CEO Russ Edelman in this year’s Specialty & Agro Chemicals America conference, September 9-11, 2015, in Charleston, S.C.
Edelman will speak in the panel discussion “Technology Platforms for Data Exchange Between Chemical Manufacturers & Tollers” on Thursday, Sept. 10, 2:00-3:00 pm in the Riviera Theatre, Belmond Charleston Place Hotel. Also participating in the panel will be John A. Caudill, Contract Manufacturing Leader, formerly with DuPont Crop Protection, and moderator Jeff Presley, Manager, AMS, Eastman Chemical.
“Russ brings a practical and experienced awareness of contract collaboration to the conference,” says Tom Leahy, Event Director Specialty & Agro Chemicals America, who sought Edelman out as a speaker. “His knowledge on the subject is in-depth, and he brings a refreshing perspective to the table for our attendees.”
The discussion will focus on how manufacturers and tollers can collaborate through efficient, secure technologies. Chemical manufacturers sometimes turn to other manufacturers, called tollers, to provide goods and services under contract for reasons of cost, timeliness, capacity or expertise. This contract manufacturing requires both formal agreements (what will be delivered, when, at what cost, and with what terms to mitigate risks) and the sharing of intellectual property and sensitive business information. This exchange of data between companies requires an understanding of the technical platforms on which the data is shared to insure both effective collaboration and security of the data in terms of permitted and unauthorized access.
“Corridor is familiar with contractual obligation management though its work with a global client base,” says Edelman. “In the context of contract manufacturing of chemicals, the downstream implications of unmet obligations is huge. Companies in this field understand better than many others that contracts are not simply legal niceties – they are instruments to safe, profitable and innovative manufacturing.”
Over 1100 attendees and 180 exhibitors will attend Specialty & Agro Chemicals America, "about a 30% increase" over last year, according to Leahy. This is the fourth edition of the annual trade show. The conference will focus on the chemical products and technologies that have specific applications for the agrochemical and specialty chemical manufacturing markets.
