Three IQMS Customers Win Manufacturing Leadership Awards

Aribex, Inc., Mar-Bal, Inc. and Tessy Plastics Corp. recognized for their innovation and operational excellence, with Tessy Plastics receiving the Highest Achiever honor in its category

PASO ROBLES, Calif. (May 03, 2012) – IQMS, a manufacturing ERP software developer with an ongoing, proactive commitment to its product and relationships, today announced that last night, three of its clients were named winners of the 2012 Manufacturing Leadership 100 Awards (ML100).

Presented at the Manufacturing Leadership Summit on May 2 at The Breakers, Palm Beach, Fla., IQMS clients Aribex, Inc., Mar-Bal, Inc. and Tessy Plastics Corp. were honored in three of the ML100 award’s seven different categories. Additionally, Tessy Plastics was named the highest achiever in its category, surpassing 18 other accomplished companies including IBM, Ford Motor Co. and L’Oreal USA.

Tessy Plastics Corp. was recognized in the Operational Excellence category for increasing its processing efficiency through automatic, direct communication with IQMS’ ERP software. Tessy Plastics manufacturers an estimated 20 million individual parts a day and needed a component identification system that did not require human intervention. Through custom development collaboration with IQMS, Tessy Plastics can now ensure that its automatically assembled parts are always made from the correct components 100 percent of the time.

Aribex, Inc., inventor of the NOMAD Pro hand-held X-ray device, was presented with an award in the Innovative Enterprise category. Revolutionizing the way dental X-rays are taken, Aribex’s NOMAD Pro is the world’s first hand-held X-ray device that can be used in or out of the conventional dental office setting, making it ideal for humanitarian, nursing home or other remote use.

Mar-Bal, Inc., a one-source solutions provider of thermoset composites, was honored in the Information Leadership category for its implementation of IQMS’ ERP software. From business process improvements to a company culture shift, Mar-Bal’s annual savings were $270,000 as well as nearly 5,000 potential machine hours that were no longer lost to downtime. Savings could not have been realized without Mar-Bal’s employees proactively embracing the business process improvements and creatively collaborating to solve any problems that arose.

“The ML100 awards recognize the premier companies in the manufacturing industry,” said Glenn Nowak, vice president at IQMS. “We could not be more proud of our three clients and all that they have accomplished. They inspire us at IQMS to continue to innovate and lead so we can support our clients in their goals to do the same.”
