London, UK, April 2023:
LEADING manufacturer of high-precision alloy engineering components, Doncasters, has announced a £1m investment to transform connectivity across its European sites.
Cloud and managed services company Maintel will implement a Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solution to provide Doncasters with an enhanced level of connectivity that will also provide a new European Meraki Wifi system.
The £1m project will be completed by May and will cover Doncasters’ sites at Bochum and Breckerfeld (Ivostud) in Germany, along with sites at Chard, Isle of White (Trucast UK), Droitwich (Deritend) and Killamarsh (Ross & Catherall) in the UK.
The new IT solution will provide Doncasters with the ability to deliver the new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) FUSION Project, including a new Shop Floor Data collection solution across multiple sites.
This investment aligns to the continued growth strategy and delivery for Doncasters’ customers across the Aerospace, Automotive and IGT (Industrial Gas Turbine) industries.
