Lighthouse Systems, the UK-based Manufacturing Execution System (MES) vendor, is a Finalist at the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards, 2017, in the category ‘International Business of the Year’.

In the last 5 years, Lighthouse Systems has substantially grown through the continued collaboration with existing customers on one hand, and the on-boarding of new customers and larger MES/MOM projects on the other. This was made possible by a successful development strategy, underpinned by continued investment in people, processes, and technology.

In that period, the Lighthouse office team has grown by 20% in the USA, whilst our office space in Singapore has doubled to accommodate growth in the Asia Pacific region.Lighthouse Systems has opened an office in France and created a satellite office in the Nordic region. The year 2016 saw further investments in developing its presence in the Middle East. In regions where the company is a not directly present, Lighthouse Systems has continued to develop partnerships with local MES software integrators, such as in Israel, the Netherlands, and South-Africa.

Some of the recent implementations of Shopfloor-Online MES include projects for a French cosmetics packaging company in Mexico, a world-class food and beverage company in New-Zealand, a large privately owned German automotive firm in the USA, already using Shopfloor-Online MES at 19 of their factories worldwide.

From a product perspective, the breadth of functionalities of the manufacturing execution system Shopfloor-Online has been expanded further with the addition of plant maintenance, energy management and workflow modules.

Lighthouse Systems, which had already pioneered MES as a web-based application, is now working on a new version of Shopfloor-Online that is fully browser-independent, opening new possibilities for manufacturers to operate the MES application over the full range of devices, PC, tablet and mobiles, on any operating system.

“We are very pleased our efforts are being recognised by the region where we are head-quartered. These are exciting times for Lighthouse Systems and the MES market. We look forward to servicing manufacturers who strive for world-class operations even better in the coming year with Shopfloor-Online,” says Paul Barber, Director.

The Gatwick Diamond is home to a vast range of businesses, which span all sectors of the economy, from household names to niche companies, and from multinationals to sole traders. The Business Award Winners are those businesses or people who have shown innovation and inspiration in their work, and have demonstrated a real commitment to this world-class region.
