Hand-picked, pre-packaged, pre-labelled and sub-assembled industrial components and fasteners ensure component quality and production efficiency.

Simplify assembly and reduce production costs

 

By creating fully packaged kits at our centre you shorten the production process on-site for your company. The kits contain the precise amount of components needed, bagged, barcoded, and quality checked.

Efficient kits of quality parts integrate into your overall manufacturing process. By adopting this service our client OEMs have saved days on typical assemblies of complex manufactured goods. Kitting can range from a relatively simple pre-bundling of quality-checked parts, to a highly prepared ‘phased assembly system’ with hundreds of components ready for a sophisticated production line construction.

Sub-assembly allows OEMs to improve final assembly efficiency by providing ready assembled components for integration into the manufacturing process. You get the flexibility and discretion to plug components into modular cell and production line processes with ease.

The service an efficient way to have scaleable and flexible production process, eliminating the need for excess production space in-house, and a simple way to accommodate surges in production demand.
