 IMIG congratulates BT Burgmann on winning SCM Excellence Award
BT Burgmann in Vicenza/ Italy, a subsidiary of Eagle- Burgmann, won the Freudenberg Group’s “Supply Chain Management Excellence Award 2008”.

In the past, the on-time-delivery rate of BT Burgmann was only at 60 percent, resulting in customer complaints. That’s why in 2007, the company decided to start a supply chain project supported by IMIG Germany in order to scrutinize the entire production process and systematically focus on closer customer orientation. Only one year after project start, roughly 70 percent of the manufactured production volume was using Kanban in order to plan the production process from dispatch to material order. This is one of the main reasons why BT Burgmann was able to improve its on-time-delivery rate up to 95 percent, reduce the backlog from 300,000 to between 2,000 and 6,000 parts and cut its stock by 25 percent (within six months!).

We want to congratulate BT Burgmann and our colleagues from IMIG AG in Germany for this impressive and successful project.
