"Avon installed the Harford Control system in its UK plant back in the early 1990s and it was a key enabler for us to reduce overfilling and deliver ingredient savings well in excess of £100,000 in the first few months of operation. When I moved our operation to Poland, knowing the excellent service the Harford Control team provide and their commitment to their customers, I had no hesitation in selecting Harford Control to provide us with their enhanced Manufacturing Control System in our Polish factory."
- Gary Jarvis, Plant Director, Avon Operations Poland
"Our need to ensure correct labelling, together with replacement of our old quantity compliance system, encouraged us to choose the new Harford integrated solution.
Having now used the new system for more than a year, we couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Not only has the new system met our primary objectives, it has also helped us to improve our overall effectiveness through the additional information provided, in respect of production efficiency, downtime analysis, paperless quality assurance and auto set-up of date coders."
The management information generated by the Harford system has now become our milk group standard, used to drive further improvements. The after-sales support from Harford has also been superb.
We believe that we have found in Harford an excellent partner who truly understands our business needs and who has the capability to help us achieve our ongoing objectives."
- Colin Stalford, DFOB's Dairy Operations Director
"Dairy Crest at Severnside have successfully worked with Harford Control for many years, in the development of their integrated data collection and real time information management system.
Though every stage of the development opens up new opportunities for further developments, we currently have the benefit of reliable information about compliance (including coding and labelling), materials usage, line efficiency, downtime analysis and wastage, all within a single, paperless, real time information management system.
Because this information is prioritised and distributed across our existing computer network, this drives performance improvement, removes guesswork and virtually eliminates subjectivity.
Most recently, we have installed a bi-directional link between our Oracle MRP system and Harford and are currently in the process of integrating further on-line devices such as Heuft and Kliklok Woodman.
We have also been very pleased with the support received from Harford Control and see them as important strategic partners to help us continue to achieve our objectives."
