Computer Associates (CAI) announced this week that Dyke Industries, Inc., a wholesale distributor of a broad line of building materials, millwork and related products since 1866, has licensed CAI’s Ponderosa Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Software.

Dyke Industries Inc. is a family-owned company serving the Southeastern U.S. The present-day company, incorporated in 1942, is the successor to two millwork manufacturing companies, Dyke Bros., which was established in Fort Smith, Ark., in 1870, and Cole Manufacturing Company, which was established in Memphis, Tenn., in 1866.

Dyke provides a full complement of hardware, doors, windows, and trim and maintains an inventory of products from all of the most popular manufacturers including Jeld-Wen, Simpson, Masonite, and others.  The company operates distribution outlets in Georgia, North Carolina, Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, Florida, Louisiana, and Texas.


“We assigned a team of key users to conduct a thorough review of various solutions and selected the Ponderosa ERP Software from Computer Associates (CAI),” said Tom Armstrong, president and CEO of Dyke Industries.

The software is currently being installed at each of Dyke’s 14 sales, production and distribution facilities. The first installation was completed in April of 2016 and the final location is scheduled for March 2018.
