Accounting and MRP System

At Distinctive Plastics we use a fully integrated Materials Requirement Planning (MRP) system that handles everything from real-time monitoring of the manufacturing process to accounting. 30+ computers located throughout the factory provide access to a common information link assuring that the entire organization is focused on quality and on-time execution.

The real-time monitoring of the machines enables accurate and dynamic scheduling of the production flow. Schedules are constantly updated giving us the visibility necessary to keep your product flowing. With a quick glance, our production personnel know what is running and which process have issues. With the integration of real-time scrap, quality results are known immediately.

Our wireless Warehouse Management System uses IR scanners to track the movements of raw materials, equipment and finished goods throughout the production cycle. Real-time product movement and on-the-fly production reporting gives us a much more accurate picture of where your product is in the production process.

Mold construction is closely monitored and mold maintenance is automatic with computer generated work orders.

Of course none of these systems would matter without highly qualified personnel to manage it. Our management team is second to none. Most of them have been working with this software for over 10 years. They are fully capable and dedicated to serving your needs.

Our Vision

It is the goal of this company to supply quality products and services to our customers in a timely manner and at a reasonable price; and to provide our employees with a safe and pleasant work environment. We are further committed to a company-wide program for continuous quality improvement.
