Services: Material Management
New Berlin Plastics takes an innovative and logical approach to material management. Our results-driven Demand Management Team is involved from project launch through production. We provide full-service support to our customers through comprehensive coordination of customer demand, material sourcing, manufacturing, and supply chain management.
Our objectives for material management are:
- Efficient product flow that optimizes material purchasing and manufacturing.
- We work with our customers and suppliers to identify the best logistical solutions.
- We ensure customer satisfaction.
We employ a fully-integrated manufacturing ERP System called IQMS to manage our inventory, levels of raw materials, and finished products. IQMS monitors, tracks, traces, and communicates business and manufacturing activities in real time, allowing us to run our operations as efficiently as possible. This system provides less variation, higher quality engagement, and a monitoring system that emphasizes on-time supply and delivery.
We recently purchased a second building that houses most of our raw material and finished goods inventory in a climate-controlled environment. We also purchased a second silo for material storage. This enables us to competitively procure resins and increases our material handling efficiencies.
The bottom line is that our consistent investments in people, process, and technology enable us to stay several steps ahead of customer demand and help us meet their growing needs.
