BPW AXLE ASSEMBLY GLIDES ALONG WITH SYSPRO
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.
BPW started as a seller and distributor of axles and suspension systems but soon expanding into the role of manufacturing them too. Key to this transition was the flexibility they found thanks to SYSPRO ERP and expert guidance from the K3 team.
