Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 15, 2011
AFT Fasteners customized products and programs have now been made available to domestic and international customers to lower their material, labor, inventory, storage and fabrication costs. AFT Fasteners has increased their warehouse spaces, increased inventory control capabilities and added more warehouse personnel experienced in todays high-tech management systems. Other production services that AFTs customers benefit from are hardware kitting and fastener modification, fabrication and plating.
Warehousing and inventory services are implementations that improve shipping as well as inventory costs and price control. Automated systems like JIT, KanBan, VMI and EDI offer inventory counts and ordering times for needed parts without the potential for manual mistakes. AFT is offering solutions for customers who need their specialty parts imported, modified, plated and then stored in a safe, secure warehouse environment.
Manufacturers are often unaware of the benefits of having kitted parts and hardware. Benefits afforded to those who use kitting services are easy ordering of parts with one kit number versus multiple part numbers. Invoicing is also easier because of the fewer part numbers and tracking requirements. Production is improved since all of the pre-approved parts are in one assembly location. Waste is also reduced since the parts are packed together instead of individual wrappings. Parts costs are lowered as well, due to the ability to order in bulk and package accordingly.
AFT Fasteners also does hardware modification and fabrication. Just a few of the most common procedures include: fastener drilling, cutting, end slotting and thread locking. These capabilities, along with an in-house metal plating and coating facility, provide a one-stop production capability that few solutions providers offer. AFT Fasteners is located in Dallas/Fort Worth with sales and distribution centers in Houston, Detroit and more opening every month.
