Costa Mesa, CA, United States, 2016/01/27 - Synres BV manufacture and supply solvent borne acrylic and alkyd resins to the coatings industry on a global scale - BrainSys.nl / SYSPRO.com.
During its 65 year history, predominant application of Synres BV resins has been in decorative coatings, wood coatings, metal coatings, marine & automotive. Synres BV was established in 1947 in Hoek van Holland (Netherlands) and is now 90 employees with a turnover of €50 million.
Formally owned by DSM, Synres BV has recently carried out a management buyout in co-operation with Standard Investment. Following the takeover, a campaign to create a company that is more lean, agile, and responsive and to reduce spend on administration and overheads was launched. A more effective ERP solution was needed.
During the ERP selection process Synres put a special focus on a set of select issues, namely; flexibility to easily adjust the solution in case of organisational changes, the usability in the chemical industry and LEAN Manufacturing. Most of the ERP solutions in the market are inventory planning solutions using MRP calculations based on expected demand (PUSH). For the LEAN environment that Synres wants to achieve it is essential that the actual usage from stock triggers the replenishment (PULL). From the information provided from a long list of candidates, a short list of three ERP systems was selected with their representing companies. They were then invited to demonstrate their solution in Hoek van Holland and to organise a reference visit.
At a glance
Company: Synres BV
Industry Sector: hetic RESins for coatings and painting industry
SIC Code: 2851, Manufacture of Paints, Varnishes, Lacquers, Enamels, and Allied Products
Number of employees: +/- 90
The challenge: Replace an extensive ERP system of the former parent company DSM with a scalable ERP Solution that will support company developments and reduce unnecessary overhead. It is essential that the LEAN principles will be fully supported.
Solution & services: SYSPRO Core modules, Accounts, Sales, Purchasing, Manufacturing.
The initial plan was to choose two potential candidates after the reference visits and ask them to prepare a Deep Dive Workshop to prove their capabilities. However it was soon apparent that SYSPRO and BrainSys BV ERP system were preferred. This efficient selection process meant an agreement was quickly met, preventing the wastage of time and energy that would have otherwise been spent preparing demos.
The implementation will start in some weeks and we are looking forward to this challenging but rewarding period. There’s a lot of work to do, but also a lot to gain!
