Named Managing Director of Village Glass in 2016, Steve Larvin started immediately on the renewing of the company – both with regards to the name: now Euroeview – as well the industry sector the company works with.
Moving from the private residential sector to projects such as schools, hospitals, sport centres and office towers required intense reorganization, from production to logistics. Together with A+W’s software provider’s experts, the commercial and technical systems are being installed and optimised for Euroview’s processes.
The production equipment from Glaston, Forel, Hegla, Lisec and CMS was not only installed in 2017, it was also put successfully into real-time operation. The CNC machines and insulated glass production are controlled in real time by intelligent, bidirectional A+W interfaces – A+W production monitors and continuous bar coding inform, register and initiate production processes.
The integration of the company and handling of all of the data generated are the most important prerequisites for Euroview’s success. Whether the data is produced on the commercial level in A+W Business or during production, whether by people or machines at Euroview, it is used and evaluated consistently thanks to the A+W software. They are the basis of crucial company decisions. The use of the data from the TG production system is a perfect example of this. Data is shared across the whole company and with customers and potential customers. This is how Euroview already meets important requirements for an Industry 4.0 environment.
