The commissioning of M3 at Flokk's production site Connection in the UK.
Flokk is a leading European manufacturer of office seating furniture. A common ERP solution for their production facilities is an important factor in streamlining processes and achieving synergies after acquisitions.
M3CS has, together with Flokk, implemented M3 at their production site Connection in the UK. The start of operations has gone very well and Flokk has expressed that they are very satisfied with both the M3 solution and our cooperation, which is based on a long-term relationship. Our consultants have together with Flokk implemented M3 on several production sites over the years and together built a strong implementation team.
Please check below for comments from Flokk and their thoughts on this project.
“I want to thank all of you for your contribution and dedication in the M3 project for Connection! It has been an intense project and go-live period that culminated in a successful go-live and first week of operations. As usual the cooperation with M3CS has worked well and together we have created results and had fun at the same time”.

Integration of M3 in Mirfield completed
What an exciting journey we have been through in the UK, since Flokk announced the acquisition of Connection around one year ago (March 1st 2022).
After the move of the factory in October last year and the launch of the new showroom in Manchester three weeks ago, we now reached another important milestone: the integration of the IT-systems into the common system M3. With the integrated systems we now have a common back-bone in place.
The last few weeks have been hard work and a lot of extra hours, with a major effort from colleagues working last weekend – but it was worth it. The go-live on the morning of 15th May went exceptionally well!
“I can’t be any prouder of the team that has delivered M3 into the Mirfield manufacturing and distribution site. Colleagues at Mirfield and from across the Flokk organisation have collaborated in a positive, engaging and purposeful manner, together with external consultants to ensure the whole process was a success but done in a friendly and joyous manner. The number of laughs was in equal measure to the number of challenges and tricky situations we faced. The biggest success from the process will be the forging of long lasting business relationships and friendship between the team members across the whole Flokk family.”
Andy Brook, UK Operations Director
