Manufacturing a Strong Relationship
Myriad Engineering has been making a wide range of components for Gyro Plastics for more than 15 years. Most of these components are manufactured in plastic, brass and stainless. They are all produced here, in our Seaview workshop and end their journey in the Underground Power Pillars made by Gyro.
Due to fluctuations in Gyro’s demand for product, it can be a challenge to meet their short lead times. Myriad Engineering’s point of difference is that we’ve designed an inhouse system to combat this. By operating a Kanban inventory control system, we can hold stock of the key components.
Each month, Gyro Plastics gives Myriad their orders for the componentry based on demand. Then throughout the month, Myriad Engineering maintains communication with Gyro to understand their fluctuating demand for stock.
“It’s really good knowing that we always have someone to call. No matter our needs, be it new products or updating stock demands. This communication means Myriad Engineering always knows what to do and have the right information.” – Trudi Duncan, Managing Director.
The system benefits Myriad as we can process the products on an ongoing basis and balance their factory workload. It also provides security to Gyro Plastics as they can trust that Myriad will always have components available. Win-win!
