Vertical Integration Of
Machining Services

In an effort to reduce lead times, we are brought some previously subcontracted operations in house; by adding a HAAS VF-11/40, HAAS UMC-1000, and HAAS ST30-Y to our machine list.

OUR latest news

Some of our thoughts and opinions about technology, the manufacturing industry and innovation.

As part of our ongoing effort to increase our range of services, we are proud to announce our expansion into machining! The addition of machining is complimentary to our existing fabrication services and will allow more precision and larger scale production of complex parts. Vertical integration has many benefits, including decreasing lead times and increasing control over the operations, but it also plays a crucial role in achieving our vision of succeeding in an Industry 4.0 environment.

Over the past few months, we have continued exploring the foundations of Industry 4.0, and implementing new systems to prepare for a digital future. One such project was focused on dramatically reducing lead time and costs by vertically integrating machining into our business. Beyond just lead time reductions, the addition of machining to our capabilities provides us with far more control over our supply chain than we’ve ever had.
