IQMS Congratulates Plastic Components, Inc. on Winning Plastics News’ Processor of the Year

Plastic Leader Leverages the Value of EnterpriseIQ

Paso Robles, CA (March 04, 2009) –

IQMS, a leader in the design and development of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, congratulates its customer Plastic Components, Inc. (PCI) for being selected as Processor of the Year by Plastics News. PCI uses EnterpriseIQ, the innovative single-source enterprise software solution from IQMS throughout its manufacturing facilities, and has leveraged the software to facilitate lean operations across its supply chain.

Now in its 13th year, the Processor of the Year Award honors excellent, well-rounded companies, private or public, operating in North America for at least five years, and examines them within seven key areas: financial performance, quality, customer relations, employee relations, environmental performance, public service efforts, and technological innovation. A committee of Plastics News editorial staffers judges the nominees primarily on their performance for the previous year, but also considers longer-term performance.

“PCI utilizes complete process automation to keep costs low and quality high. By doing so we’ve prospered to become a leading, globally-competitive supplier of critical molded plastic parts,” says Tom Duffey, chief executive officer of PCI. “I couldn’t be prouder of our achievement in the industry, and I’m pleased PCI has been acknowledged as Processor of the Year. At PCI, we focus our core strengths in automation to keep our manufacturing processes running very lean. IQMS is our technology partner and helps us keep our competitive edge while still providing outstanding customer satisfaction and achieving ever higher standards of business management.”
