I worked at Ashcroft full-time for more than a year
Pros – Well developed supply chain system and good organization of business units. Good 12 month blanket ordering system and lean flow of materials and components through shop floor. Buyer/Planners have good amount of independence.
Cons – Challenges with new ERP system implemented in 2011. Not well suited to highly technical and highly customized, high SKU, descriptive part number environment. Compartmentalized and inadequate system training, little support for needs and functions of Purchasing/Materials group. Old facility located next to Housatonic river - parts of parking lot flood regularly at very high tides. Climate control only in office and electronics manufacturing areas.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
