Hutchison Hayes Separation Inc.
- Cut lead-times by 50 percent
- Streamlined sales process
- Improved manufacturability
- Supported 20 percent annual growth rate
Hutchison Hayes Separation, Inc., pioneered the development of liquid/solids separation technology for the oil-well drilling industry back in 1928. Today, Hutchison Hayes continues to be a major supplier to oil and gas services companies, but has expanded into other markets that use separation equipment. To support growth and the expansion of its product line, Hutchison Hayes decided in 2005 to reevaluate the AutoCAD® 2D and Autodesk Inventor® 3D design software that it had used.
Hutchison Hayes decided to standardize on SolidWorks® Premium design software and soon added SolidWorks Simulation Professional analysis software. The company chose SolidWorks software because it is easy to use, represents the best value for the price, and provides integrated design visualization, simulation, and communication tools. By selecting SolidWorks solutions, Hutchison Hayes cut its lead-times by 50 percent, streamlined its sales process, improved manufacturability, and supported an annual growth rate of 20 percent.
