International supply chain solutions provider TouchPath is installing its ‘TouchWMS’ warehouse management system (https://touchpath.com/solutions-2/) to support manufacturer Norcros Adhesives’ company growth, it was announced. TouchWMS will integrate with Norcros’ new Microsoft Dynamics ERP system to automate the company’s warehousing and manufacturing processes as part of a broader business improvement initiative. Norcros Adhesives is planning to increase its manufacturing capacity by 150%. The company is a trading division of Norcros Group (Holdings) Limited and is based in Stoke-on-Trent.
Commenting on the decision to invest in TouchWMS Norcros Adhesives Operations Director Dr Mohammed Nawaz says: “The planned increase in our manufacturing capacity will have an impact on the volume and diversity of product we make and send to the warehouse. Going forward, best-inclass stock control and traceability based on seamless shop floor and warehousing information are therefore essential. Our market research has shown that TouchPath has the knowledge and expertise to provide the system we need and rapidly customise it for our business needs. They understand the risks inherent in integrating new ERP and WMS systems and have successfully minimised those risks for us by working closely with our ERP provider. They are also very costcompetitive.”
