Chevler has announced it is to introduce a new production planning system, in order to cope with soaring demand for its baking cases and muffin wraps.

The company has said that, shortly, it expects to announce record turnover and profit figures for its first year of operation under new leadership, following a management buy-out in February last year.

The new production planning system, which is being phased in over the next couple of weeks, has been designed to help reduce lead times on special products, as well an increasing availability of catalogue lines. The firm added that the system will also enable it to respond faster to fluctuations in demand.

“We have always striven to deliver regular product lines, but our business and volumes have recently grown to such an extent that sudden fluctuations in demand have started to pose far more problems than they previously did,” explained MD Stuart Whelan.

“A key element of our new approach will be a marked improvement in the day-to-day visibility of both capacity and demand. It will result in better decision-making and we will be able to react much faster to unforeseen events,” he added.
