Modern just-in-time manufacturing acknowledges that it is most economical to reduce as much inventory in the various stages of the supply chain as makes sense. This inventory management method reduces obsolescence and overstock levels from economic cycles and frees up resources.
In addition, many circumstances beyond your control can mean that at times it is a necessity to have a backup inventory available. These circumstances include when supply times are unreliable or fluctuating, when the potential production loss from a lack of inventory is great, or when other external factors are making consistent production difficult.
Quality Hydraulics & Pneumatics, Inc., will stock specifically for customers at our facility where this service makes sense. In some instances, we will stock the components at the customer’s facility. This allows instant access to the inventory for the customer without the costs of carrying the inventory. The inventory typically has minimum and maximum stocking points, which are maintained by Quality Hydraulics. This consigned inventory can be a very beneficial service in specific manufacturing or supply situations.
Quality Hydraulics works diligently to provide the specialty services required by the industrial and mobile fluid power OEM and user markets in Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana. These services are ever-changing and new options are always being developed.
