InfinityQS in the news: Supply & Demand Chain Executive featured InfinityQS in an article covering their successful partnership with Strategic Materials, the largest recycler of glass in North America.
Founded in 1896, Strategic Materials is the largest recycler of glass in North America. With nearly 50 plants, Strategic Materials supplies recycled glass to manufacturers of glass containers, fiberglass insulation, highway bead, decorative glass, glass fillers and other specialty glass.
For Strategic Materials, quality is a primary measure of success. Yet, when it came to sharing quality data between plants, the company faced a challenge—each plant collected information using their own methods and nomenclature. That disparate data was then exported into Excel spreadsheets that didn’t align with any other plant’s information—making cross-site comparisons nearly impossible.
Brad Bell, Director of Quality and Continuous Improvement at Strategic Materials, wanted a quality system that would quickly and easily unite data from all plants—and he selected InfinityQS Enact. Within three months, the product was collecting and analyzing data across 12 Strategic Materials plants.
The company is now using Enact in 31 plants.
