Mining company implements ERP for manufacturing

Software to help support five acquisitions

Mining company Industrea has deployed a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tool to manage its five recent acquisitions.

The tool will also support its manufacturing process, financial and group reporting.

The Queensland-based company provides equipment and services including underground drilling, gas drainage, collision avoidance systems and mobile asset tracking to North and South America, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and China.

It recently acquired Boart Longyear's Mining Capital Equipment (MC) arm for $10.1 million and has customers including BHP, Anglo Coal, Rio Tinto and Boeing.

Industrea group financial controller Jeff Andrews said the company will implement the ERP application from Pronto Software over the next few months.

"The application will support our strict regulatory and quality control requirements, as well as tie together our multi-level build of materials in our manufacturing processes," Andrews said.

"It will help us manage growth, identify cost savings and process improvements, and make better business decisions."

The company will use the software's financial, distribution, project costing, manufacturing, and maintenance management modules.

Industrea has acquired Boart Longyear MCE, Qven, Advanced Mining Technologies, Wadam Industries and PJ Berriman & Company over the past 24 months
