Sales and distribution companies looking to extend into manufacturing would do well to look at the recent and ongoing success of BPW Limited. The K3 Business Technology Group (K3) customer is one of the most successful axle suppliers to the articulated trailer manufacturing sector. The company’s axles and suspension systems are helping to keep the goods rolling for major retailers such as Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, John Lewis and Aldi.

To meet competitive market conditions, the company evolved from a classic sales and distribution firm into an organisation that could also assemble product in the UK. Key to this is the flexibility of its SYSPRO Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and expert manufacturing guidance from K3.

“In just four months, we were up and running with the plant and the software was installed and working efficiently. We were very pleased with the outcome”
