Contract Manufacturing Metal Fabrication

Custom Metal Fabrication & Manufacturing Services

In today’s industrial environment, companies are faced with the challenge of supply chain management, reducing waste, and improving productivity and profits. What can a company do when they realize that part of the manufacturing process is too labor intensive or no longer cost effective to produce but there is still a strong need for the part. Sometimes a part may require time intensive change out of tooling disrupt lead time or require additional labor for an item that may only be needed periodically.

Sourcing as a Solution

Many companies and OEMs are turning to contract manufacturing services to source some of their production needs because it is often more cost effective to have another company produce parts or components then to do them internally. For example, ESCP operates a full metal fabrication company complete with state-of-the-art metal fabrication equipment and a strong experienced workforce to set up and schedule production of other company parts. By reviewing and understanding the tolerances, dimensions, and quality checks, ESCP can replicate the manufacturing process to meet the demands of the manufacturer while maintaining the consistency and quality of the parts made. Further understanding of inventory needs and delivery dates can be accomplished through a lean manufacturing process that ensures the metal parts are produced on time and to the level of quality needed. Usually this can be accomplished for a more efficiently and reduced costs then the manufacturer can produce the part.

ESCP was established in 1994 to serve manufacturers and OEMs with world class custom returnable shipping racks, containers, wire baskets and carts. Because our customers were pleased with our quality and fabrication, many companies started to ask to additional items to be made to support their production needs for metal products. Because we have an extensive range of heavy metal fabrication equipment (needed for producing racks and carts) we have the capacity and experience to take on additional production work from other companies. We can produce their parts and components to their specifications and schedules through our implementation of lean manufacturing principals as well as our ISO 9001:2015 quality certification.

This results in a “win win” situation for both companies, the parts can efficiently be produced with reducing quality or delivery time and provide a more cost-effective solution to the manufacturer’s productivity and inventory needs.
