THE WOODLANDS, TX, February 22, 2018 – After nearly 9 months of preparation, Load King, a world leader in store fixture manufacturing, has successfully finished their manufacturing factory of the future by implementing Global Shop Solutions ERP software at the beginning of 2018. Load King’s clientele includes high-profile brands such as Starbucks, AMC Theaters, Einstein Bagels, TCBY, and more. They offer a variety of products and services to retailers such as metal and wood displays, graphics, construction, installation, and project management capabilities.

Led by Global Shop Solutions Project Manager Daniel Carranco and Consultant Silas Fulsom, Load King made the trusted switch to Global Shop Solutions enabling them to interface with nearly 20 different software packages and eliminating almost 50 maintained spreadsheets.

Prior to Global Shop Solutions, Load King struggled with their job costing capabilities on a routine basis.

Before implementation, Load King would only be able to cost out projects three months after the fact,” said Carranco. “Now they go down to the component level and can launch lean initiatives all over the shop floor to improve processes in a matter of hours. This was made possible because of the integration with SolidWorks® and using Global Shop Solutions BOM Compare software resulting in massive savings and a full-time position for BOM creation.”

Another issue for Load King was their “accountability through the entire parts process when assembling a kiosk,” says Director of Manufacturing & Supply Ken Carella. Before implementation, the company would repeatedly have one part or multiple parts not making it to the final assembly, and then chaos would ensue. This was where they used nearly 50 manual spreadsheets eating away precious time on the shop floor and other products. Luckily, they have been able to use Global Shop Solutions Shop Floor Display software and Document Control software to reduce the time spent on assembling kiosks from a few days to one hour.

It’s always a pleasure helping manufacturers like Load King simplify their manufacturing and go from go to great to create a better product for their customer base. For more information on how Global Shop Solutions can simplify your manufacturing, please visit
