Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organisations, today announced three new wins in the UK across the automotive, plastics and fluid control industries for its Mattec manufacturing execution system (MES) production control software.

Mattec MES gives customers access to real-time manufacturing information, empowering them to improve plant productivity, eliminate machine downtime, unlock capacity, and reduce inventory and labour costs. The new Epicor customers revolutionising production control in the UK are:

  • ITW Delfast Group - designs and produces engineered plastic and metal fasteners for the international automotive industry

  • Piolax - Manufacturer of plastic engineered parts for the automotive sectors

When continuous manufacturing has to take place across multiple sites to the highest quality standards, understanding every aspect of the production lifecycle is critical to meeting customer needs, unlocking capacity, ensuring overall equipment effectiveness and accurately scheduling production. Epicor Mattec MES enables manufacturers to collect and analyse data across multiple plants, production lines, and asset types, helping a business find efficiency and new capacity wherever it is hiding.

"UK manufacturers are more focused than ever before on making themselves as competitive as possible on the international stage," said Steve Winder, regional vice president for Epicor in the UK and Ireland. "Mattec MES, helps them achieve this by giving real-time visibility of the production schedule, maintenance, wastage and equipment utilisation. Having all this information in one place, enables a company to fine tune its processes and identify efficiencies that can unlock hidden opportunities to increase capacity."
