ActOn Finishing drives forward future innovation

“Everything now is automated which is a really big help since we can access the information we need at the press of a button instead of going through sheets and sheets of paper and the new system will keep up with growth in our manufacturing division.”

Sid Gulati, Managing Director, ActOn FinishingLink opens in a new window

ActOn FinishingLink opens in a new window has grown steadily since it was established in 1965 from its base in Torrington Avenue in Coventry. In 2020, the business modernised its laboratory which is used to demonstrate products to clients. Over thirty people work at the family-owned business which specialises in providing surface finishing solutions which include manufacturing a range of machines for a variety of applications and industries – including finishing medical implants, aerospace components and cutlery.

ActOn Finishing wanted to introduce state-of-the-art manufacturing software to keep track of its orders which are sent around the world from its Coventry base.

Members of our SME Group worked with ActOn on a digital roadmap which helped the company decide which Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to invest in. Following this work, the company also deployed a Solidworks PDM software to streamline information flow from their design office to the production shopfloor.
