Our customer was struggling with another production stamping supplier regarding quality and delivery. Wisconsin Metal Parts was able to hold the current supplier’s price and bring all 100 tools in-house. Working with our customer, we prioritized the tooling, ran first article parts, performed repairs/maintenance where needed, performed PPAP and delivered production parts over the course of several months according to the customer’s timeline.
We also helped them catalog their tooling and eliminate 30 obsolete tools. When any of these obsolete parts are needed, we now efficiently run them in our laser and brake presses. Our assembly and machining capabilities allowed the customer to consolidate this work from two vendor sources to just one. We ship bi-weekly releases to help this customer minimize inventory.
