For businesses that break the mould
Plastics and rubber ERP supports a vital part of the UK economy. Not only does the plastics and rubber industry provide products that we use on a daily basis but also provides 180,000 jobs and exports to the value of £6.7bn*. The plastics industry is an extension of the chemical industry, however focused on the conversion of polymers into final or intermediate products through moulding, extrusion or thermoforming.
Worldwide the demand for plastics is rising. Despite this, the plastics industry is still highly competitive experiencing serious challenges. Globalisation has led to lower industry growth as manufacturers have been drawn to lower cost economic locations. Subsequently the industry has witnessed manufacturers diversify in an attempt to identify niche areas such as higher quality, higher value products.
A SYSPRO ERP solution provides full traceability throughout the supply chain, from raw material to final phase ensuring manufacturing processes are both adaptive and responsive. Seamless integration with CAD / CAM assist in balancing inventory levels, establishing appropriate pricing and analysing customer and product portfolios.
