With a staff complement of 135 and a turnover of approx. 60 million Euro, MEVACO is Europe’s leading supplier of expanded metals, perforated metal sheets, woven wire mesh and welded mesh. The product range is continuously extended and includes standard products as well as individually configurable products with accessories. With its seven locations in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy, Hungary and Poland and further distribution partners in Scandinavia, Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovenia and in the Baltic States, MEVACO has in excess of 20 000 customers in Europe today.
To consolidate the IT infrastructure of the various European subsidiaries and distribution companies and to create a common central database for all, the Göppinger MEVACO GmbH in 2015 replaced its existing ERP software with the platform-independent, multi-site enabled and fully web-based VlexPlus ERP system by VLEXsoftware+consulting gmbh. In the course of restructuring, MEVACO’s existing isolated applications were also integrated into the ERP system, together with the thus far separate systems for capturing operational data and for production control. With the linking of the Magento Webshop and with dispatch handling, the company furthermore benefitted from consistent processes and an easy to maintain IT infrastructure in support of complex inter-company processes.
