BENDALLS ENGINEERING, A DIVISION OF CARR’S ENGINEERING, WAS FOUNDED IN 1894 AND DESIGNS AND MANUFACTURES SPECIALIST STEEL FABRICATIONS AND ASSEMBLES ELECTRO-MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT FOR A WIDE RANGE OF INDUSTRIES.
The Right Tool for the job. For Bendalls Engineering, the SYSPRO ERP system has proven to be an ideal solution in meeting its specific engineering-to-order business requirements.
Design and engineering skills have always been at the heart of UK manufacturing, and while the mass producers are disappearing rapidly, or shipping production overseas, there is still a core sector of companies who succeed in the UK by designing, engineering or making products to order. However, with global competitors increasingly offering more than just low cost labour, these companies are also now under massive pressure to reduce lead times and improve ‘customer service’.
“This modified WIP report has become a major part of our production control system, and typically forms the basis of production meetings. We can monitor individual job costs and progress. As soon as a project starts to go off track we know about it and can take corrective action.”
A combination of SYSPRO ERP and DataSwitch have helped BKW, a leading UK instrumentation engineering company, to automate it's labor intensive warehouse management system. This resulted in a 50% drop in the time taken on stock re ordering.
