Car parts firm upgrades IT systemStockton-based car parts manufacturer Nifco UK has spent £160,000 upgrading its IT system.

The company asked Bondgate IT to design, install and test a back-up data recovery facility for its factory, replacing legacy technology with up-to-date servers and storage, adding the capacity for future growth and increasing the resilience and recoverability of its business information systems.

The company (www.nifcoeu.com), which makes parts for the engines, interiors and exteriors of cars produced by many of the industry’s leading brands, was established as Elta Plastics in 1967, before being bought by Nifco in 1990.

IT manager John Tinkler said: “This new technology gives the business an added competitive edge, supports its future expansion and reflects its principles of innovation and improvement.

“The significant investment allows it to increase the speed, efficiency, resilience and capacity of its IT infrastructure.”

Garry Brown, founder and managing director of Bondgate IT, said: “Nifco has displayed great foresight through its willingness to invest in its IT infrastructure.

“The hardware is now running the most up-to-date software and operating systems, which enhances the integrity of the whole system.”
