ETO ERP Leader Encompix Selected by Midwest Patterns

Midwest Patterns (www.midwestpatterns.com) officially became an Encompix customer this May. Midwest Patterns is based in Quincy, IL. The annual $10M (120 employee) firm is a pattern and mold maker specializing in products for the appliance and automotive market. Encompix Engineer-to-Order Enterprise Resource Planning was selected based on the deep understanding of the engineer to order manufacturing process and ability to support it with solutions. Encompix references played a big role in the selection process. The key stakeholders had conversations with Lakeland Mold and MSI Moldbuilders and both gave Encompix strong marks for support, follow up, and product development.

The full solution consists of a 15 user Encompix system, Encompix Configurator (Core, BOM. Routing, Quote), Encompix repository and shop floor data collection. Midwest Patterns are planning for a 1/1/06 Go-Live date.

The implementation will fully begin in July, 2005. For the next several months the Midwest Patterns project manager is receiving training in Encompix products in an effort to take on as much responsibility as they can internally for the implementation.

Encompix (www.encompix.com) has filled the manufacturing software requirements of Engineer-to-Order companies since 1992. The company name reflects the commitment to developing business application solutions that encompass the complex areas of project-based and job-based manufacturing. Encompix provides ETO manufacturers with a competitive advantage by improving bottom line results.
