Automotive chemical manufacturer implements ERP VISUAL
11/03/2011 - Established in 1971, Darmex manufactures high-quality chemical products that are used by the rubber industry in general and the automotive tyre industry in particular. Jeffrey Inglis
Headquartered in Buenos Aires, Darmex provides chemical products for auxiliary processes and bladders, and has gained an international reputation as a reliable supplier of process aids.
Since Darmex exports 90% of its products to more than 30 countries, it must meet a wide variety of international quality standards – including ISO 9001:2000. To overcome these challenges in today’s ultra-competitive marketplace, Darmex needed an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that would help enhance all the company’s processes.
Darmex implemented Infor ERP VISUAL, which works in conjunction with their theory of constraints (TOC) philosophy to identify and avoid bottlenecks in production. In turn, this helps reduce manufacturing costs per unit, and increases capacity without adding inventory.
"Infor ERP VISUAL has provided us with many benefits, such as increased productivity, improved plant scheduling, tight coordination between manufacturing and purchasing, and comprehensive information for better decision making," says Carlos Forti, Financial Director.
Since implementing Infor ERP Visual, Darmex has realized significant improvements in productivity, scheduling, and quality control. In turn, these productivity gains have contributed to an overall company growth rate of approximately 25%.
"Infor offered us the right solution for our specific needs in order to provide higher-quality products worldwide to customers such as Goodyear, Firestone, Pirelli, and Continental, among others," says Forti.
