"FAKRO's history shows that for 25 years one of our main themes is innovation. Continuously, we improve our products and we create new, technologically advanced solutions. Thanks to this, we can meet the highest needs of our customers. On a daily basis, innovative solutions allow us to optimize costs, time and energy, as well as what increases the efficiency and quality of work. It is no accident that the slogan of this year's FAKRO jubilee is "25 years of innovation."
FAKRO is a private company established in Poland in 1991. The company is the most dynamic and fastest growing roof window (a.k.a. skylights) manufacturer in the world. Since its beginning 25 years as a small family company, FAKRO has developed into an international corporation achieving the position of co-leader in the global market of roof windows. The company aims to supply the highest quality products to satisfy the requirements of their global customers. So, they place the highest priority on health, safety, security, and the environmental impact of their products. In order to achieve optimized business and production processes, best product quality, reduced working costs, and short delivery times, FAKRO trusts in a networked commercial and technical A+W Software system based on A+W Business and A+W Production. We asked Adam Balawejder, Plant Director Insulating Glass Production at FAKRO, what he considers the most remarkable benefits FAKRO gets by using the A+W-Software system.
"The software module, A+W Business, helps us support our customers by working faster, being more target-oriented, and generally more productive”, says Adam. "Automation provided by A+W Production improves our production and delivery processes, makes them faster, and shaves production time and money. Planning processes get faster and more transparent. Every order is entered only once in the system and then available in every part of the company at every machine."
Adam continues, "Using the sophisticated A+W barcoding system together with the production terminals, we have every (piece of) information about every sheet of glass in (the) production process, (its) whereabouts, the processing details, etc. Barcoding saves paperwork. Every (piece of) information is stored on the barcode label and can be viewed on the A+W Production Terminals. Almost no production papers are needed. Breakage is handled easily, getting it by barcode reading into the breakage-pool, where it is reproduced in time to go with the same order; no incomplete orders."
"Last but not least, we greatly appreciate the A+W service and consulting (as well as) their great knowledge and experience with both (the) software and glass (businesses). The response times are great; they always help us very fast and efficiently!”
