MaterialsZone and Kafrit Group: A Path to Enhanced Products and Experiences

Not just a deal, but a catalyst for a new era

In a strategic alliance set to reshape the landscape of masterbatches and compounds production, MaterialsZone, a trailblazing Materials Informatics platform, and global industry heavyweight Kafrit Group (TASE:KAFR) have announced a game-changing, long-term commercial agreement. This collaboration aims to propel Kafrit Group to new heights by leveraging data to pioneer improved products and deliver an unparalleled customer experience.

In an era marked by a crowded and competitive manufacturing landscape, navigating evolving customer demands, supply chain intricacies, and regulatory hurdles has become increasingly challenging. The need of the hour for manufacturers is to transform into data-driven enterprises, yet many are hindered by a lack of suitable tools and expertise.

Enter MaterialsZone, armed with its groundbreaking Materials Informatics Platform, a technological marvel harnessing the prowess of artificial intelligence and machine learning. This platform is set to empower companies like Kafrit Group to bolster their internal capabilities and foster collaboration. Beyond merely aggregating, enriching, and standardizing data, MaterialsZone's platform equips materials and data scientists to gain crucial insights, accelerating the development and improvement of products while minimizing costs.

"I view Kafrit Group as an ideal partner, not only for their readiness to confront challenges head-on but also for their forward-thinking stance on innovation," expressed Dr. Assaf Anderson, Founder and CEO of MaterialsZone. "This approach lays the groundwork for a seamless implementation, promising a potentially successful outcome."

Daniel Singer, CEO of Kafrit Group, acknowledged the dynamic nature of the plastics industry, emphasizing the pivotal role of innovation in maintaining competitiveness. Singer highlighted MaterialsZone's tools as a catalyst for a data and artificial intelligence revolution within the Group, steering them towards a future marked by market prominence and improved operational efficiency. Moreover, the platform fosters collaboration and synergies within the Group, optimizing the utilization of global assets.

Materials and materials-based products, encompassing everything from eco-friendly concrete to advanced spacecraft alloys, constitute an integral part of industries globally. Despite an annual investment of $41.6 billion in R&D, companies grapple with limited data utilization capabilities, prompting a necessary shift indicated by the projected 25% compound annual growth rate for the Materials Informatics market. MaterialsZone emerges as the solution, empowering its clients to craft superior and sustainable products while significantly trimming costs.

This transformative partnership is dedicated to the memory of Kafrit Group’s SVP BD & Innovation, Nadav Goldstein, who tragically lost his life on October 7th in Kfar Aza, Israel. Goldstein, envisioning the alliance's potential, remarked before his passing, "The extraordinary team at MaterialsZone, along with their unique platform, will support our digital transformation process and will drive us towards a better future." This sentiment echoes the collective mission of MaterialsZone and Kafrit Group – designing products with cost, sustainability, and functionality at the forefront, setting the stage for an innovative and impactful future.
