									      Martinsons invests in the future with IBS
       industry-specific Distribution System
       Martinsons, a Swedish sawmill and timber industry company will implement a new Distribution System
       - IBS Enterprise for Windows - IBS Wood to optimize production, warehousing and distribution.




One of Sweden's leading sawmill and timber industry concerns, Martinsons, is readying itself
for an upswing in the economy. The company has signed on to implement a new Distribution
System - IBS Enterprise for Windows, along with the industry-specific solution IBS Wood - to
optimize production, warehousing and distribution. The agreement is valued at 5.5 m SEK.

Martinsons is one of Sweden's largest family-owned wood processing businesses, with a
comprehensive product line that includes milled lumber, laminates (glulam), wooden bridges
and walkways, and construction framing systems. The group's latest annual revenue was
1.2 b SEK. Martinsons is preparing for a positive swing in the economy with the help of IBS
distribution and industry-specific software. The IBS system will integrate three production
units with the sales division, creating an overview and streamlining the company's entire
supply chain - from production to sales.

Kenneth Wallin, CEO of Martinsons Trä AB, states, "We're now again seeing a rise in
demand. To make operations more effective, we looked for a solution that could meet our
requirement for consolidating information from production, sales and distribution - in one
integrated system. The choice went naturally to IBS and their solution, which is unique and
developed specifically for our industry."

Ulf Zetterberg, Senior Vice President at IBS, says, "We're of course quite pleased with this
agreement. Martinsons is a highly interesting and respected business that stands in the
absolute forefront of what for us is a very important industry. This shows that IBS is the
obvious partner for the sawmill and timber sector."

The implementation of the IBS Enterprise for Windows system, along with IBS Wood, will
begin after this summer and will be in full operation by the end of the first half of 2010.
