Our specialty here at Mecha Inc. is “high mix/ low volume” manufacturing. This means that we manufacture a wide variety of parts in smaller volume runs, and many times we deliver multiple revisions of a part over an entire life cycle. With this kind of manufacturing it is very common for us to yield a few extra pieces with each successful run of a part . Some of our customer’s agree to accept a certain percentage of these extras with each delivery and for those that don’t, we offer a very convenient stock part service. We keep a healthy supply of these stock extras, all carefully inspected for quality and conformance, and organized, cataloged, and quickly accessible by us and available right away for our customers. Taking things a step further, our own Infoflo website (https://infoflo.mechainc.com) that we offer our customer’s access to, allows them to view our entire stock inventory of their parts, for instant purchasing.
Here are just a few scenarios that illustrate the convenience of Mecha Inc.’s stock part service:
- Scenario one: The customer has an old field unit or two out there that use some of our components and suddenly needs to replace those field units.
- Scenario two: The customer miscalculated the number of our components that were needed to complete their build during the initial purchase with us.
- Scenario three: For whatever reason the customer only needs a few pieces of one of one of our parts and wants to avoid having to place a new order and pay the significant cost associated with a small run and wants to avoid having to wait for the parts to be made from scratch.
