With markets and general conditions changing faster than ever, there is a need for speed, flexibility and adaptability. The Datwyler corporate value of “We are entrepreneurs” is exactly the vision required when it comes to developing an agile and innovative organisation. By delegating decision-making powers as close to the market as possible, we make it easy for our customers to do business with us. The idea is to make our organisation even more agile and exploit fast decisions and short response times as additional opportunities to stand out from the crowd.
New Distrelec Enterprise Hub adds value
The new Distrelec Enterprise Hub in Manchester will leverage the benefits of being an agile organisation through efficient cooperation between the product, supplier, procurement, e-commerce and marketing management teams, all at one location. In our distribution business, we cannot compete with our competitors on size. This makes it all the more important for us to be the most customer-centric, the quickest and the most straightforward supplier. The Enterprise Hub will allow us to achieve our objective of adding value for our target customers going forward.
Operational excellence thanks to a uniform production system
In the Sealing Solutions division, Datwyler is introducing a uniform production system in all its plants, across three continents. Using state-of-the-art digital technology, we are creating a framework for continuous improvement and operational excellence. The standardised rules allow us to work together in an agile and flexible manner at all levels. Thanks to our uniform production system, we can learn more quickly from each other and from others. We will no longer waste our resources by constantly re-inventing the wheel each time we build a factory. Instead, we can concentrate on things that are more important: on people, on safety, on quality, on delivering, on costs and on the environment.
