sofco announce new long-term partnership with Carrington Textiles

January 2024

sofco will optimise inventory levels and further reduce manufacturing costs in a new long-term partnership with Carrington Textiles, the UK’s largest producer of workwear fabrics.

Carrington Textiles have chosen to implement sofco Planning as their End-to-End planning solution, opting to deploy Sales and Operation Planning (S&OP), along with our Demand Planning, Supply Planning and Scheduling modules.

With sofco being a leading provider of integrated and collaborative End-to-End planning solutions in a wide range of industries, Carrington were encouraged by sofco’s experience in the Consumer Goods, Manufacturing and Retail sectors, and felt assured by our team’s understanding of the production environment, process, resources, constraints, rules and related issues, and the fit of their software.

Carrington Textiles were also excited by the latest features of the sofco Planning suite of software as exhibited in successful demonstrations using Carrington’s data from receipt of master orders, sub order creation and scheduling through all defined operations using Carrington specific constraints and rules, which allowed their users to see rapid results.

The new project will focus on further enhancement of Carrington’s inventory management, as well as an overall goal of increased system efficiency and further reduced manufacturing costs with more efficient set ups and change overs.

“Greencore is involved in multiple categories, supplying a diverse range of products with different characteristics that require very different manufacturing processes. We selected sofco as they have an End-to-End planning and execution system that can be configured easily to fit these disparate demands. Our approach is much more sophisticated and collaborative now.”

IT Business Partner, Greencore

“What impressed us most about the sofco people was they understood our business, listened, and would bring a lot of experience to the project. They brought solid solutions to the issues we presented them with. It was clear from the outset that we were going to be able to work well together as a team and deliver this project. That is exactly what has happened.”
