‘‘System vital to Northvale every moment of the day’’

High quality valve manufacture

Northvale Korting is an engineering company based in Leicester primarily involved in valve production for the process industry. Northvale, recognised in the sector as a high quality valve manufacturer, have been in business at the Leicester site for over 30 years.

“I would recommend Redthorn to anyone”

Northvale had a computerised business system in place for twenty years and although it was functional, it was lacking in a number of operational areas and didn’t fully support all of the company’s internal business processes.

“Implementation was completed ahead of schedule”

After evaluating a variety of ERP Software, Northvale selected Redthorn which they found to be a cost-effective and user-friendly solution to their problems. A seventeen user system with two Data-Capture Touch Screens was installed in July 2002 ahead of schedule.

“Our users quickly accepted the system”

Users then underwent 10 days training before the system went live within 2 months. “The standard of training was good and our users have now become ‘experts’ on the system” said Mr Wright, Managing Director.

Four years later, Redthorn has proved to be fundamental to the success of Northvale. “The system is vital to us every moment of the day; without it we would not be able to successfully run our business.”
