The company’s main distribution center is located in Pinetown in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. L&G Tools owns and operates from an 11,000m2 state-of-the art warehouse, enabling it to meet the growing demands of its customers.

L&G Tools is a proud distributor of 13 brands, the majority of which are imported through its Eastern-based operations. Its brand names include Puma, Fragram, Yato, Wildberry, The Bathroom Shop, The Cabinet Shop and Trade Brands.

Core competencies include importing, warehousing, distribution, bulk-sourcing, category solutions and private label initiatives. The company is committed to enhancing long-term relationships with its retail chains and independent partners through strategic in-store initiatives.

The Mission

L&G Tools’ existing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, Comet Top, a system which ran on a proprietary version of Unix. It had become outdated and was no longer meeting the company’s requirements.

The Solution

As a medium-sized corporation, L&G Tools needed an efficient, fully-integrated solution to manage its business. After a thorough selection process, L&G Tools selected SYSPRO for its ability to meet the company’s requirements as well as ensure a smooth migration path from its existing ERP system

The Outcome

L&G Tools transferred its inventory and debtors data from Comet Top to SYSPRO and became one of the first companies to implement the Windows version of SYSPRO.
