Stratford Metal Fabrications - Sub Contract Production
Whether you have a new product to take to market, an established product that you simply cannot produce quickly enough for the demand or you have a strategy to de-risk an element of your overhead by subcontracting production.. wouldn't it be great to have a fabrication facility that you can utilise as if it were your own without all of the aggravation that comes with it? One where you're only paying for what you fabricate. No inhibitive overheads, staffing costs, capex expenditure.
As an invisible end-to-end fabrication partner we offer a seamless product delivery service that streamlines manufacturing and logistics processes, translating to reduced risk, improved profitability and greater velocity to market.
At Stratford Metal Fabrications we can provide production capability that expands and contracts in line with demand, turning what is typically a commercially onerous fixed cost into an easy to manage, fully flexible and responsive resource. We offer a level of flexibility which is invaluable when taking fabricated products to market, as demand is usually an unknown.
We will produce to order, if that is what's required, but we can also support you in optimising your products design. Expect us to ask questions and propose better ways of doing things (if there are any). We feel that we must add value as your subcontractor and consider all our relationships to be partnerships where it is mutually beneficial for us to help you have the most competitive offering to your customers.
Every client requires something different from a manufacturing partner. However the generic steps in the process are always the same. We will engage in a product design review, ensuring we understand exactly what it is you need and what represents value to you and your customer. From there we create production plans, SOP's and quality plans unique to your product.
Then, we kick start our fabrication team, introducing your product onto our shop floor, standardising the build process and ironing out any immediate issues. With the production now controlled we will work to your plan, batch/volume manufacturing your product in line with demand.
Our relationship with our customers is always focused on strong and frequent communication from both sides. As mentioned previously we prefer to regard it as a partnership, with both sides fully committed to the success of the project and always willing to highlight and discuss anything that could possibly compromise that success.
So if you're thinking about setting up your own fabrication facility and are exploring all the alternative options, or you are looking to change manufacturing partner or find a whole new one, get in touch, so we can show you what partnering with Stratford Metal Fabrications can bring to the table.
