Chemical Engineer Builds Thriving Company in Niche Market

Fiberglass conduits are a niche product. Their resistance to corrosion and lack of toxicity makes them perfect for specific uses like tunnels. Champion Fiberglass was founded in 1988 by a chemical engineer who brought together the strength of glass with the corrosive resistance of resin and the company has become a fast-growing business filling demand for the specialised product.

“Why only have accounting when you can have the whole ERP system?” Goran Haag, President, Champion Fiberglass

Out of the Fire, Into the Cloud

Seizing market share
Designing its own manufacturing equipment, Champion Fiberglass has undergone steady growth capturing a majority of its market segment and is the only conduit manufacturer that is ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certified. The company doubled its capacity in 2020 and is undergoing further improvements as well as introducing new products to its market segments.
Smarter, bigger company emerges from ashes
When a fire in March 2016 destroyed the manufacturing facility, ownership became convinced of the importance of cloud-based computing. When an inflexible Sage MAS 200 system began holding the business back, Champion Fiberglass chose NetSuite’s cloud system.
NetSuite helps to fuel expansion
With NetSuite, Champion has streamlined its financial processes and has the flexibility to continue to evolve. The company has made it possible for all customers to log in to follow order commitments, and it can post inventory availability for mission-critical items online by extracting data from NetSuite.
Expanding the NetSuite footprint
While using NetSuite for production planning, inventory management, payroll and financials, Champion Fiberglass replaced Microsoft Dynamics CRM with NetSuite CRM in 2020. The company intends to continue to expand its use of NetSuite, implementing a barcoding project for its warehouse operations.
