Recognising the importance of a more consultative approach to selecting and successfully implementing new shop floor processes and technologies, founders Gene Denny-Lybbert and Greg Hathcox are focusing on curating best-fit solutions for individual client needs and maximizing the return-on-investment (ROI) of these investments.     

“We are helping manufacturers approach and achieve measurable business improvements in a smarter and better way. Unlike solutions vendors that are limited to only their brand, we are building relationships with multiple technology providers and consultants to deliver the most effective solutions and results for our clients,” commented Greg Hathcox.

Improving productivity

Due to strong market pressure to reduce manufacturing throughput time, TexTempo has already forged its first reseller relationship with Shop Floor Control (SFC) solutions provider Shopfloor Control LLC.

This state of the industry solution leverages wireless tablet technology, an Android app, and cloud-based production management controls to drive improved productivity, visibility and tracking capabilities at the operator, supervisor and management levels of the organisation. Alliances with other cutting room, production floor, engineering, payroll and other technology and consulting providers are also under development.

“Our core focus is on improving productivity, visibility and process tracking at all levels of the shop floor through executive levels,” said Denny-Lybbert. “Our initial customers are pleased to learn that we bring greater and more diverse experience to the sales and implementation cycle. They value our unique ability to deliver the most advanced and industry-focused production solutions available.”
