Headquartered in Rockledge, Florida, Renco Electronics is implementing IFS Applications to improve efficiencies at its manufacturing facilities in Rockledge and in Dongguan City, China, as well as at its warehouse and logistics center in Hong Kong. Renco Electronics expects IFS Applications will help reduce inventory value by 35 percent.

“We needed a single enterprise-wide solution that could help us gain better control over our cost of materials and labor, especially when there is a spike in orders,” Renco Electronics CEO Edward Rensing said. “Implementing IFS Applications will give us the ability to assess our efficiencies and make adjustments as necessary; in real-time, enabling us to reduce our Work in Process, raw material inventory and grow the business with less overhead.”
