200 years of world-class engineering
Hayward Tyler has spent more than 200 years building a reputation for the quality design and manufacture of motors and pumps for the global energy sector.
With locations in the UK, US, China and India, the company’s ambitions have always been grand, and growth is an ever-present target. When the turnover of its UK operations grew from £18m to £26m between 2011 and 2014, Hayward Tyler decided to capitalise on its momentum with an ambitious transformation project.
Hayward Tyler’s goals were threefold: the company wanted to maximise efficiency, better align capacity to demand, and boost profitability. The first step in achieving this, would be to double the size of its UK facility. And, in doing so, dramatically increase its capacity for production.
However, realising these goals and planning the transformation effectively required the right tools –driven by the power of data and digital technology.
Hayward Tyler required a solution that would provide insight into how the business would look over the next decade, what future opportunities there might be, and how operations would evolve over that period. And, most importantly, it needed visibility into the optimum timing of key asset investments.
In addition, whatever solution Hayward Tyler chose had to factor complex resource and process variables into its plan, including new equipment, people, sub-assembly processes, cranes, forklifts and back office policies and workflows.
