Glovia Helps Trimm Technologies Make an Impact

Company Profile

Established in 1928, Trimm Technologies is one of the world's largest independent manufacturers of high performance computer storage subsystems, assemblies and enclosures. The company, which is part of the US-based Trimm Group, has manufacturing facilities in Las Vegas and Northingham, UK. It employs a total of more than 200 people and has revenues in the region of $50 million.

As a technology-focused company, Trimm has a tradition of investing in staff, facilities and state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment. It has also adopted a progressive approach to information technology (IT), with a robust, reliable infrastructure being seen as essential for effective coordination of operations on different continents. One of the most significant developments in recent years has been the company's implementation of Glovia's ERP product glovia.com.

"We needed a leading edge system to give us an improved view of our materials planning requirements, as well as a more flexible production capability, so that we could react more quickly to our customers' needs, Commented Alan Honarmand, managing director of Trimm Technologies Ltd., the Company's UK subsidiary.

After evaluating the market, Trimm Technologies chose Glovia. According to Honarmand, glovia.com was the only product that offered the necessary scalability with the versatility to support existing and new business opportunities anywhere in the world. Glovia International's global presence was a particularly important factor in the decision. The new system went live in Las Vegas in November 1998 and in Nottingham some five months later.
