Infor, the industry cloud company, has announced longtime customer Brentwood Industries Inc. will modernize its business processes across the organization with Infor CloudSuite Industrial, an industry-focused ERP solution.

Through Infor CloudSuite Industrial, Brentwood aims to see real-time data visibility, streamlined production processes and enhanced supply chain management. With tools for managing financials, orders, inventory, production and quality control, the cloud technology is designed to help manufacturers reduce costs, increase efficiency and improve customer satisfaction.

Brentwood is a second-generation family business, founded and headquartered in Reading, Pennsylvania, and specializes in producing plastics and using plastic materials in innovative ways. Its products are used in myriad applications including power generation and distribution, water treatment processes and medical device packaging. The company operates 15 manufacturing facilities in the United States and across the globe.

Brentwood has been an Infor customer since 1996, running Infor ERP solutions on-premises throughout its business sites. In January 2022, the company acquired a German-based company, Enexio Water Technologies, which gave Brentwood added capabilities, additional engineering presence and the possibility of increased worldwide sales.

Due to Enexio Water Technologies facilities using the prior parent company’s ERP solution, Brentwood management decided to take the opportunity to modernize its own business processes by implementing Infor CloudSuite Industrial throughout its existing and newly acquired facilities. Working with Infor partner Decision Resources Inc. (DRI), deployment will begin with Brentwood’s facilities in Tijuana, Mexico and the company will evaluate how CloudSuite Industrial can be rolled out throughout the organization.

“Brentwood is excited to continue its long-standing relationship with Infor by adopting the CloudSuite Industrial platform as part of our overall IT strategy,” said Dennis Reed, global head of technology at Brentwood. “This will enable us to improve and enhance the efficiency of our processes through standardization and implementation of industry best practices.”

Jim Tibbs, Infor regional vice-president for North America, said: “Brentwood has been a long-time partner with Infor, and we are excited that it will be utilizing CloudSuite Industrial to strategically position itself for future growth and scalability. The best practices and enhanced functionality will provide Brentwood with the tools necessary to better manage its business, reduce costs and create more efficiencies. Infor CloudSuite will serve Brentwood well for many years to come.”
