RG Brose, a leading automotive OEM manufacturing components for Mercedes Benz, has chosen Afrisoft and TransLution to assist them with tracking products from receiving all the way through their production process up to the dispatch of finished goods. As products move through the process, live production information will be updated to Syspro.

The process includes labelling raw materials as they are received, scanning products to the production lines, scanning finished goods and doing a back flush into Syspro right through to scanning items for dispatch onto trucks and creating dispatch notes in Syspro.

RG Brose Automotive Components (Pty) Ltd is a well-established automotive supplier which supplies various OEM’s with Systems for vehicle Doors and Seats. The company originally had one production facility in Brits (North West Province, South Africa) and have recently opened a new plant in East London (Eastern Cape Province, South Africa) to supply Mercedes with seat structures and door modules. It is at this new plant that TransLution is being implemented.

The company was established in 1999 and was the Brose Group’s first joint venture on the African continent. Brose has a 60 per cent stake in the joint venture, with the remaining 40 per cent owned by its partner, the Gulmini Family Trust. RG Brose is a proud BEE contributor and holds a Level 6 BBBEE certificate.
