ERP company Emerge Information Technology is 10 years old this month and celebrated the landmark at Silverstone racing circuit last Friday.
The enterprise resource planning firm serves a variety of manufacturing organisations, many of whom were in attendance on the day. Dunlop Systems and Components, the manufacturer of air suspension parts, and ATG Access, the Merseyside based manufacturer of rising bollards, joined a party of sixty people at Silverstone.
The event consisted of a morning conference, which saw user-focused presentations, tours of the nearby Sahara Force India Formula One team HQ and an afternoon of driving activities around the circuit.
Phil Nicholls, managing director at Emerge information Technology, commented: “It was especially gratifying to see the large number of people who attended the event not only enjoying its fun aspects, but also the conference.”
A spokesperson for GSM Primographic, supplier of die cut adhesive parts and sub-assemblies to the automotive sector, said: “A fantastic day, both informative and thrilling.”
Mr Nicholls told TM that the company is looking to “continue growth in the UK and Ireland.” He added: “Following the opening of our regional office in Manchester last year, we are looking to open more offices, employ more staff and expand our customer base.”
When asked what the main challenge was over the coming year, Nicholls replied that finding the right staff was essential as the business continues to grow.
The company is currently looking to add to applications for engineers on mobile phones. One of the applications they make collects shop floor data via mobile devices.
