Gerweck GmbH Surface Technology
SAP ERP solution supports growth
Gerweck GmbH, a midsize surface finishing enterprise, has fully committed to diversification and growth with the investment in a strip electroplating line. To support its chosen course with future-proof IT systems, the company introduced an SAP Business All-in-One solution in partnership with Sycor.
Complex logistics process with batch traceabilityDietmar Lohr, Sycor project manager, explains the key challenges related to the SAP ERP implementation at Gerweck GmbH: „Successfully mapping the very specific and complex logistics process of electroplating from receipt of the customer order to the invoice takes experience. With batch traceability embedded by us, the rings delivered by the customer which serve as carriers for the metal parts can be tracked precisely.“ The Sycor team also created an asset ledger as the central feedback point for the overall documentation of the value creation process. Martin Neufang, CEO of Gerweck GmbH, is very satisfied with the results of the SAP implementation: „Based on the SAP Business All-in-One industry solution, Sycor developed a system for us that maps and fully integrates our processes. Scalability on the one hand and expansion options on the other hand give us security for the future.“ The company is already planning to implement quality management and financial accounting.
