While Drilling is Messy, Inventory gets Clean for Oil and Gas Manufacturers
Founded in 1979, American Block Manufacturing is a family-owned business that designs and manufactures oilfield and marine equipment for land and offshore rigs and repairs drilling equipment. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, their products include traveling blocks, mud pumps, fairleads, rotary tables, hammer unions, pressure gauges, swivel joints and relief valves. Along with these standard products, American Block also manufactures customized products to fit their customers’ specific needs.
American Block initially focused only on Global Shop Solutions’ accounting software to manage their finances efficiently. This software allowed the accounting team to access data faster due to a single-point entry process. This saves time, improves accuracy, and makes accounting easier than ever for American Block. Overtime, the firm decided to implement more of Global Shop Solutions’ software and applications in order to improve control over their shop floor.
After implementing Global Shop Solutions’ inventory module, American Block employees saw immediate results.
“Being able to track all our parts in an integrated ERP software program versus an Excel spreadsheet was like night and day,” says Materials Manger Rechal Shah. “We can make sure we have the right inventory to build jobs and create work orders. I can’t imagine what this process would be like without Global Shop Solutions.”
With Global Shop Solutions, American Block is now able to stay on top of their material inventory and track every aspect of their material needs. To learn more about American Block Manufacturing, download their case study or any of our other case studies here.
