We are happy to consider any JIT/Kanban requests. We have found that Kanban requests typically stem from our customers’ efforts to streamline production processes. Today’s streamlining trends include efforts toward smaller deliveries with shorter lead times. Most of our current customer/supplier partnerships have developed through implementation of these streamlining efforts.
Partnerships develop out of a need for higher-level commitments and communication between customers and suppliers. At the partnership level we have found an increase in orders, which has offset some of the added costs associated with smaller delivery quantities and shorter lead times.
We are committed to creating strategic partnerships to offer specialized services such as certified supplier status, design and material consultation and JIT delivery.
