Foundry in operation since 1920
Manufacturer of exhaust manifolds, steering knuckles and other cast components for the automotive industry
Cadillac Casting was formed in 2005 specifically to purchase the existing ductile iron foundry from Hayes Lemmerz
The facilities department processes and manages 30,000 work orders annually
When Cadillac Casting acquired the Hayes Lemmerz Foundry in 2005, the facilities team there determined they needed to explore a more cost-effective CMMS option than the existing DataStream 7i solution they had been using when their operations were part of Hayes Lemmerz. If they chose to stay with 7i, they would be required to purchase a new license for the system, since the company was now a separate entity from Hayes Lemmerz.
In selecting eMaint to replace 7i, the facilities team at Cadillac Casting, lead by Brooks Lucas, determined that X3 provided the best value in terms of speed and performance, efficiency, system functionality and ease-of-use. A cost-comparison helped illustrate the benefit of switching for the team.
