New ERP System Goes Live at Nichol McKay

30 Nov

ERP Investment

In today’s fast moving world of supplying the world’s leading Original Equipment Manufacturers, fabricated metal product producers face increased global pressure, are stressed to find new efficiencies. Price sensitivity, volatile raw material cost, shorter product lifecycles, and adoption of quality and value-added services can be challenging. In response, Nichol McKay are expanding their traditional business and looking for new opportunities—some in new and unknown markets and others centred in business performance. Lean initiatives are driving Nichol McKay to reengineer business processes from the shop floor to the top floor and to the extended supply chain. To support this journey Nichol McKay have invested over £100K in upgrading its ERP system.
