Strengthening Operational Efficiency via Automation

Natech Plastics turns to the IQMS integrated ERP software and MES system to automate processes and improve scheduling of its ISO-9001 and ISO 13485-certified business.

Headquartered in Ronkonkoma, New York, Natech Plastics, Inc. provides the design, mold-making, scientific molding, custom injection molding, and contract manufacturing of novel applications for critical use.

Natech’s clients in the medical device, consumer packaging, and electronics industries have high-precision, tight-tolerance applications with a high cost of failure.  The Natech engineers and manufacturers support clients during that crucial transition from design to manufacture.

Efficiency via Automation: Moving from Manual to Automated Processes

As Natech’s business has continued to grow, the company reached the limitations of its legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. The antiquated system required employees to handle many operations manually, leaving them with the hassle of stacks of papers on their desks. Scheduling was a particular pain point, since manually making updates was both difficult and time-consuming.

Seeking to automate processes, Natech evaluated a range of ERP systems. The competitive review led Natech to select IQMS end-to-end ERP Software & Manufacturing System based on its expertise in supporting injection molding processes and positive recommendations from the Manufacturers Association for Plastic Processors (MAPP) network.

“IQMS understands our industry, has earned the trust of the industry, and provides the capabilities to support our operations,” said David Kachoui, director of business development at Natech Plastics. “We are excited to automate much of our previous manual work with IQMS, which will help to make our processes faster, less risky, and more streamlined.”
