Nexteer Automotive, a Saginaw County based global tier one automotive supplier committed exclusively to wheel-to-wheel advanced steering and driveline systems, has received the Enterprise Technology Leadership Award from the Manufacturing Leadership Community.
Nexteer received the recognition for its QAD Cloud Replacement of Legacy Systems project, a cloud-based enterprise resource planning system that improves efficiency in all global business operations by removing legacy systems, according to a Nexteer news release.
"As Nexteer continues to expand our operations and customer base around the globe, doing business as efficiently and timely as possible is critical to our success," Laurent Bresson, president and global chief operating officer, said in a statement.
"This new ERP system enables us to deliver superior quality in a consistent manner through a standardized global application that helps us meet each customer's unique needs."
Since QAD was first implemented at Nexteer in 2006, 11 sites have implemented the technology. The new system manages global efforts with minimal downtime and disruption to support global accessibility needed to serve a variety of facilities and functions, the release states.
Nexteer is to be honored at the Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala on Wednesday, June 4, in conjunction with the Manufacturing Leadership Summit at the Omni La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, California.
The Manufacturing Leadership Awards honor manufacturing companies and individual manufacturing leaders that are shaping the future of global manufacturing.
Winning projects and individual manufacturing leaders have demonstrated achievement in one of a wide range of categories, the release states. They are chosen by a panel of expert judges for results that enabled the manufacturers to set themselves apart from their competitors and that have delivered clear and compelling value, return on investment and other tangible outcomes.
