FASTER, SMARTER WORK

Waste less time and produce more

MiTek software means less time wasted, efficient processes and high production for Mattingly Lumber. "It makes my life very easy, as far as truss design goes, especially when you have this amount of work coming through here," said Greg Brueggeman, who designs roof trusses, floor systems, and wall panels for Mattingly Lumber. "It helps push that work through faster than what it would normally take."

 

MiTek is the industry leader. One software program helps us put the whole package together from the ground all the way to the roof.

Background

Founded in 1993, Mattingly Lumber has grown to over 22 acres and 100,000 square feet of covered storage at their Illinois-based manufacturing facility.  The facility has a high production output and strives for 24-hour turnarounds on projects, depending on modern technology and streamlined manufacturing processes that are made possible thanks to MiTek's SAPPHIRE™ Structure, plus production and office management modules.

 

Challenge

Despite being a high production plant, Mattingly Lumber was bogged down with slow processes across various departments. After implementing MiTek software, many of those inefficient processes were simplified and corrected. "MiTek software let us really cut down on time that we spend as far as printing out paperwork for the shop," said Brueggeman. "It cut our time by nearly 70% or more, just by a couple changes."

 

The Solution

SAPPHIRE™ Structure

"SAPPHIRE™ Structure saves countless hours sometimes as far as input. A lot of times we use the 3D option also. We can send that to our customers if they have a complex roof. They can see what it's going to look like, give them an idea what they're going to be getting when we design it, and we can make changes," said Brueggeman, Designer for Mattingly Lumber. "It's very dependable, and it's very easy to train people on also."
