NGF Europe

NGF Europe Limited is a subsidiary company of the NSG Group of Japan, one of the World's leading manufacturers of glass products for building, automotive and information electronics applications.

NGF Europe is at the forefront in the manufacture and marketing of specialised Glass Cord products. Glass Cord is used mainly in the automotive industry for the reinforcement of synchronous drive belts.

The Challenge

NGF required a third party contractor management system to help manage a major CDM project at their site in Lea Green.

The Solution

NGF worked with Airsweb to develop the Permit to Work solution and this was run as a pilot for the CDM project commencing in 2012. NGF were heavily involved in the original architecture of the software ensuring that both parties had a clear understanding of what would make this solution work well.

The Benefits

Airsweb Permit to Work allowed NGF to manage a large number of contractors throughout the project, ensuring records were maintained despite large volumes of work being undertaken. The solution also works well with the current incident management solution offered by Airsweb.

'We went live with the module in 2012 just in time for a major CDM (construction, design and management) project at Lea Green,' explained Paul. 'The Permit to Work module proved an asset in controlling a large number of contractors across a host of disciplines. We are currently in the throes of developing the Permit to Work module further to include a contractor database. Airsweb has an in-depth knowledge of our needs and expectations and can be relied upon to develop complex systems to meet our requirements on time and on budget.'
