Corrie MacColl is a group of Natural and Synthetic Rubber growing, trading, storage, distribution and technical support companies, with plantations in Cameroon and Malaysia, and owned by the Singaporean conglomerate Halcyon Agri. The Halcyon group is the leading natural rubber supply chain manager in the world, supplying 1.6 million tonnes annually, or 12% of global consumption.

Corrie MacColl comprises of several individual entities including natural and synthetic rubber trader and distributors Centrotrade, Wurfbain, Alan Grant and Momentum Technologies International, testing laboratory Momentum Technologies Laboratories, Europe’s largest latex tank storage facility Kelvin Terminals and the world’s largest rubber plantation Corrie MacColl Plantations. Corrie MacColl operate across the globe with offices in the USA, UK, The Netherlands, Turkey, Germany, Malaysia, Singapore and China, in addition to the plantations in Cameroon.

Following M&A activity in 2017-2018, the Corrie MacColl group needed to align these entities, who had in some cases been competitors, and create a unified group committed to the group’s vision of “a traceable, premium quality product that is environmentally and socially certified by globally recognised bodies at each step of the supply chain.”

Corrie MacColl needed commodity management software that could help them support this vision, and selected Gen10 based on the overwhelmingly positive recommendations from teams within Wurfbain and Alan Grant who were already using Gen10’s CommOS.

Gen10 worked closely with the group to understand their requirements and rapidly implement CommOS across the wider group, completing the migration for the USA offices in just 3 weeks. The Gen10 team migrated data from spreadsheets and the offices’ incumbent CTRM systems to standardise processes across the group, whilst developing functionality to support regional requirements such as translating system-generated documents and ensuring the legal requirements of different countries are adhered to.

We caught up with Tony Fox from Corrie MacColl to discuss how the implementation is progressing.
