CLIENT NEED

A client recently revealed to Estes that with their old fabricator, they were managing the production process themselves – taking three weeks to shuttle parts from one subcontractor to another, wasting precious time that could have been spent on revenue-generating business operations. Raw materials alone cost more than $24 per product produced. Continuing to manage production in this manner would prohibit the client’s growth.

The client visited the Estes prototype shop and watched as their design was brought to life by the automated cell. The result was a new prototype for the client that was cheaper ($24 finished product cost) to produce and provided the same quality as the traditional product. The client was blown away by the time saved with the new design – from a production time of three weeks to a production time of three days – and, the final product looked better than the previous design.

RESULT

The client now produces a better product at a lower cost, and all without having to lift a finger during the production process. Now, with less time spent managing the production process, the client is able to grow his business while Estes produces quality products for his customers.
