Rush Fabrication Work

A WMPI production customer needed a lot of next-day/same-day spot purchase support to complete several large product kickoffs on their jobsite. Purchase requests would often arrive in the afternoon with next-morning delivery needed. With our second shift capabilities, WMPI could complete the rush orders.

The customer’s steel parts, used for support rails in product transfer applications, required a combination of laser cutting, forming, welding and painting to complete them. WMPI successfully supported this customer during 3 to 4 weeks of rush needs, while still fulfilling our normal production and stocking relationship with them and other customers. According to this customer, WMPI found solutions to process their product and components in days, while some of their other vendors took years to streamline the same process.
