Sistema Plastics is an iconic New Zealand-based company that manufactures, markets and distributes stackable food-safe plastic kitchen storage containers. Established in 1982, the company has grown into a world-leading brand that exports to more than 100 countries worldwide and counts its customers in the millions.
To ensure its products remain internationally competitive, Sistema wanted to maximize production output and quality in the most cost-effective way possible. Based in Auckland, the manufacturer is a long way away from many global customers, so optimizing manufacturing performance is mission-critical for offsetting the impact of high logistics cost.
Today, Sistema’s pioneering production facility features a variety of automation technologies that include robotics and vision recognition systems. Integrating Epicor ERP and Advanced MES has delivered real-time access to machine and quality data that can be imported, integrated and effectively analyzed to better plan schedules and resources.
