    About the Customer – Madix, Inc.

    Dixie Craft Manufacturing began as a small, family-owned manufacturer in Alabama in 1956. Madix Store Fixtures, a similar manufacturer in Texas, was established in 1962. The merger of Dixie Craft Manufacturing and Maytex Store Fixtures in 1982 formed Madix, Inc. Over the years, Madix has expanded to include over 2.3 million square feet of production space where it manufactures fixtures for retail stores. The fixtures are built for any type of retail and can be used either in the front of the shop (e.g., attention-grabbing displays, wall sections, etc.) or in the back of the shop (e.g., pallet racks, storage shelving, etc.)

    The Key Points

    In SEAL Systems’ new success story, you will learn:

    • How Madix, Inc. significantly reduced the amount of time required to produce their work order packages
    • How SEAL Systems’ output application helped Madix print out the applicable internal engineering drawings with each production order

    The Challenge

    Madix, Inc. used to produce its production work order packages manually. The process meant that a person had to navigate to the production order in SAP, individually look up all the drawings linked to materials, operations and other objects in the company’s production order module and print each one separately.

    To produce and distribute these packages, it took the data clerks several hours of work every morning to complete. This required staff to arrive at the office as early as 3 a.m. to collect and distribute the work packages.

    Special thanks to Jack Thelen and Madix, Inc. for their help with this success story
