Premier EuroCase recently installed a panel management system to better respond to customer demands.
Premier specializes in laminated panels. The company uses a Wemhöner melamine press to produce TFL and HD panels as well as a Bürkle PUR laminating line for high gloss acrylic panels. Since Premier controls the entire process in-house, it bypasses normal supply chains and is able to commence production of new projects within 24 hours.
“Lead times are critical because our customers typically needed it yesterday,” Andy Wilzoch, the company’s owner and president, said in a statement.
To insure the continued growth and competitiveness in the market, Premier’s edge has come from continuously investing in the latest technology. The company’s most recent acquisition is an intelligent panel management system from Bargstedt called IntelliStore, a completely automated panel storage and retrieval system that optimizes the material flow and enables an efficient use of resources.
As the system stores each board, it records the size, weight, color, and other pertinent details. The exact board can then be recalled as needed for production. IntelliStore allows Premier to produce and store only the quantities needed for production, according to the company.
“By having this kind of automated inventory knowledge, we are even more prepared for just-in-time manufacturing,” Wilzoch said.
