Trelleborg Group is based in Houston, TX and services the petroleum industry by supplying buoyancy material that is essential in offshore drilling operations. When we started working with Trelleborg, they were using an antiquated system for sorting and warehousing the component materials they were manufacturing in order to build their final product. The result was inefficiencies that created challenges when storing components that could otherwise be useful on future projects.
RutterKey worked with company leaders and key personnel to first understand the unique challenges presented by the Trelleborg process. Based on input across the enterprise, RutterKey helped develop and launch an ERP system that put the entire company on same integrated IFS software platform. The new system is designed to reduce material waste, eliminate redundancy among departments and automate the classification process to improve manufacturing and administrative efficiency.
