A commercial company that operates in the sector of domestic water heating, offering its customers gas water heaters, wall-mounted gas boilers and radiators, came to OAK for assistance with a project of digital and ecological transition.

The company is one of Italy’s leading plumbing and heating enterprises, with a good thirty years of experience in the design, production and marketing of heating solutions. Its products are already sold in numerous countries throughout the world, chief among them: China, Russia, Argentina, Greece, Bulgaria etc…

In recent years, the company has recorded strong growth in international sales, with the trend forecast to continue. As a result, there was no mistaking the need to increase the efficiency of all its corporate procedures while further automating its production processes.

The OAK team met with the client to gather the information needed to undertake the project. Together, we established the strategic objectives: introduction of a complete ERP management system for the overall efficiency of company activities, together with a number of very important portals for managing spare parts and firms providing services of technical assistance; automation of production processes, in particular those involving packaging, in order to free up resources to handle increased production volumes and make controls of products on the line more rapid.

With the help of OAK, the company presented two projects funded by Simest for an overall amount of approximately 1 million euro, 40% of which does not have to be paid back, regarding the digital and ecological transitioning of firms with a vocation for international business.
