Synalloy uses DEACOM ERP to integrate chemical manufacturing

June 25, 2008 - Deacom announces that Synalloy Corporation has chosen DEACOM to integrate its specialty chemical manufacturing business in one software system. The selection of the DEACOM System is part of a company-wide initiative to reduce costs associated with productivity, safety, inventory controls, quality, and delivery.

Synalloy Corporation, a diverse manufacturer of piping and piping systems and specialty chemicals, has been in business since 1945 and employs over 440 people with operations in South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia. The company used a combination of software systems to manage its chemical group, which consists of Blackman Uhler LLC, Organic Pigments LLC, and Manufacturers Chemical LLC. This system setup lacked the centralization needed for viewing information across the entire chemical group, according to Synalloy Information Systems Director Rhonda Harmon.

"One of our chemical companies was still running a homegrown system separate from our main ERP system," Harmon says. "And the ERP system we were using was so customized, particularly in the areas of costing and data collection, that it was no longer being supported by our vendor. We were performing many functions outside of our current system that should have been part of our ERP system."

The DEACOM ERP System is scheduled to be implemented in October of 2008. Once live, the system will integrate the business processes of Synalloy's chemical group, including lab management and regulatory reporting, accounting, inventory control, purchasing, sales order entry, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and production in a single database.
