Wilhelm Schmidlin AG is a family run business with around 80 employees, founded in 1947 and specialised in the development and production of top quality steel and enamel baths and shower tubs, shower surfaces and washing stands. The company has state-of-the-art production plants, its own press plant and a new enamelling facility with efficient robotic production lines, conveyer systems and furnaces, opened in 2009. In addition to its standard range of approx.
20,000 different models, Schmidlin also produces special types tailor-made to customer requirements. Approximately half the Swiss steel baths and shower tubs are manufactured in the Schmidlin factory in Oberarth, canton Schwyz. To more effectively manage the approximately 20,000 models and 1,000,000 variants, to improve the transparency of the production processes and to enable the integrated representation of all workflows, this traditional Swiss company introduced the web based VlexPlus ERP system by VLEXsoftware+consulting gmbh, designed to meet the needs of the industry, in 2015. This bathtub specialist thereby created the foundation for reorganisation of the variant processes, since then benefiting from considerably reduced data maintenance, transparency of all processes, high reliability of supply and overall automated configuration processes in Sales, Production and Procurement.
