Specialty Plastics Manufacturer Pexco Establishes Single ERP Platform with Microsoft and Alithya
Headquartered in Johns Creek, Georgia, Pexco is a North American leader in the design and manufacturing of specialty plastics products. It provides standard and custom parts and components to manufacturers and end-users across industrial, life science, commercial and consumer market applications. With manufacturing locations in the United States and Mexico, it is the largest custom profile plastics manufacturer in the United States.
Pexco has grown rapidly through acquisition and its legacy ERP system was outdated and seen as a risk factor; many processes were manual, and inconsistent across the Pexco facilities. Pexco’s private equity owner pushed for a new system to eliminate the risk. The key objectives for Pexco were to implement a cloud-based system to minimize hardware and infrastructure investment and management, as well as take the next step to operate more efficiently to facilitate its growth—such as automating manual processes, standardizing processes across facilities, and eliminating as many ancillary systems as possible.
By partnering with Alithya to implement Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance, Supply Chain Management, Production, and Warehouse Management for all its plants, it gained a cost-efficient system that provides ease of use for end-users, extended planning capabilities, enabled data collection in all facilities, and eliminated the need for additional resources.
