Silbrico, one of the largest single-site perlite manufacturer in the world, selected abas ERP software for its expertise in multiple industries and EDI functionality.

Silbrico produces perlite products and manufactures the furnaces that are used to produce perlite so customers can produce their own product on site. The perlite production side of their business requires very different processes than the furnace manufacturing side, so they needed a software solution that could accommodate both aspects. abas ERP is a flexible solution that fits both the manufacturing and production industries, and offers tight integration between separate business departments so Silbrico can run their business using one solution.

“With abas, we really got the best of both worlds,” said Bryan Bell, part of the sales team at Silbrico. “Seeing those pieces fit together and provide a cohesive flow of material is the biggest thing we were looking for.”

Silbrico also selected abas ERP for its EDI functionality. Silbrico ships a lot of their products using rail cars, which requires a lot of manual interaction and attention to make sure all of the paperwork lines up.

“One thing I’m really looking forward to is being able to automate that process so I don’t have to spend hours a day manually making sure everything gets where it needs to be,” said Bell.

“abas is excited to be partnering with a growing business like Silbrico that is so customer focused,” said Alan Salton, President of abas USA. “We feel that abas ERP’s diverse functionality can help the Silbrico team bring their unique mix of manufactured products and production machinery to the next level.”

Silbrico, based Hodgkins, Illinois, manufactures perlite, a volcanic glass that is heated up and expanded so it can be used in various items including insulation and soil. Silbrico’s main product is sil-cel, a lightweight filler material used inside other compounds, but it also produces other products including sil-kleer, krum and ryolex. Silbrico has been using their previous software solution for 25 years, and is looking forward to implementing abas ERP so their software can grow with their business.

“We weren’t just looking for a software solution,” said Bell. “We were looking for a partnership. We’re making a really big leap and wanted someone who will be there for us going forward.”
