Mulzer orders new Bull Escala system
Mulzer Crushed Stone has ordered a new Bull Escala system with EMC Disk Array Subsystem, Storage Area Network (SAN), new Tape Library, new software and services. The new systems will provide Mulzer with more contemporary platforms and the performance improvements afforded by the new POWER6™ technology available on Bull’s Escala systems. Mulzer has been a valued Bull customer since 1976 when they purchased their first system, a Honeywell Level 62.
Mulzer Crushed Stone, located in Tell City, Indiana, touches the lives of millions of people daily. A family business for over sixty years, Mulzer supplies the limestone, sand, and gravel for international airport runways, roads, interstate highways, dams, and chemical operations at utilities. Daily, Mulzer delivers thousands of tons of state-approved crushed stone for “driveway to highway” construction projects throughout their market area and is the Ohio Valley’s largest supplier of Crushed Stone, Sand and Gravel.
Mulzer relies on Bull technology to support the company’s MINCOM ERP application, which manages their assets and all equipment used in the company’s day-to-day operations. This application also helps Mulzer schedule planned and unplanned maintenance activities for all their equipment, and provides web-enabled access to this important application. The new Bull Escala systems are built on POWER6™ technology and virtualization to help deliver superior performance, increase system utilization and efficiency, and provide for easy administration and reduced total costs.
Mulzer Crushed Stone was founded on a tried and true philosophy that still guides the company today: Give customers the personal attention they expect from a family-owned business, back it up with the resources of a large corporation, and do it in a manner that brings quality to every job.
Mulzer also believes that protecting the earth’s natural resources is of utmost importance, and the company actively works with the Indiana Mineral Aggregates Association to develop a state-wide system of strict, voluntary reclamation standards, as well as pursuing an ongoing program of environmental protections.
