ERP Software Case Study: Fullerton Tool Company
Some manufacturing companies make parts. Others like Fullerton Tool Company, build the tools that those companies use to make their parts. For more than 70 years, Fullerton Tool Company has been manufacturing high-quality solid carbide cutting tools for a wide variety of clients. From the automotive tool and die industry to medical, aerospace, heavy machinery, recreational equipment and more, companies around the globe count on Fullerton Tool Company for the tools they need to manufacture their products.
Located in Saginaw, Michigan, Fullerton Tool Company manufactures both custom and make-to-stock products, including end mills, drills, reamers, keyseat cutters, saws, burrs and countersinks. ISO 9001:2008 certified, Fullerton Tool also utilizes lean concepts such as 5S, Six Sigma and Fast Response Manufacturing to provide the highest quality at competitive prices. Led by President Patrick Curry, the family business is now in its third generation of ownership.
Prior to Global Shop Solutions, Fullerton Tool Company managed production with a dated ERP system that lacked the necessary functionality, was difficult to manage, and had limited reporting capabilities. With an eye toward future growth, management hired Peter Chludil as IT manager to help bring Fullerton Tool Company’s information technology capabilities into the 21st century – starting with a new ERP system.
