We build it here. Like you, we believe that quality begins at home, so you’ll find it reassuring that we manufacture many of our replacement parts right here in our own facility. Our manufacturing facility incorporates many of today’s “best practice manufacturing techniques”—including computerized statistic process control (SPC), 6-sigma process improvements, and 5 S‘s housekeeping practices. We have the latest CNC computerized milling and turning equipment, and utilize CBN 5-axis grinding in the production of critical safety item parts. Cellular manufacturing concepts are in use throughout, as exemplified by our turbine vane and blade cell, compressor vane cell, compressor blade cell, and utility cell.
In 2012, we significantly expanded our manufacturing square footage by investing in a robust filtration system. This gave us more space to improve efficiency and effectiveness while moving a job from start to finish. Simultaneously, we eliminated non-value added processes, improved our computerized production scheduling, and incorporated our internal intranet to distribute information to eliminate the need for paper. We are active participants in continual improvement.
Behind it is a conviction that we can only build the best parts and components with the best people. Our teams of engineers, technicians and craftspeople have years of experience in the business. Equally important, our teams work as one, with responsibility for the end product shared by all.
