Rank Group extends global networking agreement with AT&T
Posted on 20-Nov-2012 11:17. | Tags Filed under: News.



New Zealand-based Rank Group has renewed its networking contract with AT&T for a further three years. Rank Group is a private company which invests across a variety of industries and aims to build and grow leading global businesses, including Reynolds Group Holdings, one of the largest packaging companies in the world.

Rank Group’s global Chief Information Officer Pat O’Connell first established the relationship with AT&T in 2008 and has a vision to consolidate and standardise Rank Group’s telecommunications services across its subsidiaries in all US locations.

In June 2011, Graham Packaging was acquired by Rank and had its own data network provided by a local service provider. AT&T’s global solution provided the ability to integrate their network with the other Rank Group companies together with the flexibility to implement managed router services and reduce operational costs. The single platform and single contract for AT&T Virtual Private Network for all of the entities helps with managing expenses and improving efficiency for Rank Group.

Through a series of strategic acquisitions, Rank Group has built up an international portfolio of leading companies across the food packaging, consumer goods, automotive aftermarket and building supplies sectors. This has created numerous challenges for the company as it seeks to consolidate these companies and to integrate the many varied networks into one that is provided with seamless support and a single point of contact for all technical and commercial matters.

Graham Packaging, based in the US, will be adding its extensive US domestic and international footprint to the well-established network of Rank Group sites globally. This consolidation has meant that Rank Group can benefit from its global buying status to achieve significant cost savings on the network, whilst reducing administration and management overheads.

In addition, AT&T is providing Rank Group with a mobility solution that delivers competitive mobile voice and data packages as well as individual packages for employees.
