It’s a simple idea. When you can manufacture a component from a custom aluminum extrusion, fewer process stages and, consequently, significantly lower throughput times are needed to make finished parts.
Partnering with overseas firms for contract manufacturing of finished aluminum components has in recent years become an increasingly less viable option. Time is money. As such, time is also opportunity. OEM and systems integration companies have recently discovered that it’s less expensive and more productive to source products through strategic regional manufacturing partnerships. The improved quality and speed to market gained through localized collaboration easily wins when measured at the bottom line.
At the same time that costs of off-shore imports are rising, Vitex Extrusion is continuously expanding its in-house downstream manufacturing capabilities to provide quick turnaround for custom precision components and complete product assemblies. From extrusion through downstream machining and fabrication processing, assembly and custom packaging, our customers have more command over changes in design and manufacturing scalability for their aluminum component manufacturing requirements.
Manufacturing Synergy in Action
The dynamic scalability of Vitex’s Integrated Aluminum Manufacturing Solutions enabled one customer to move from a start-up operation to producing 100,000 units per week in just a 60 day period. Our customers’ new business opportunities are better fulfilled when their product deliveries keep pace with customer demand and inventory requirements.
Vitex customers take advantage of an integrated aluminum extrusion-fabrication plant geared toward nimble and flexible production capability. This means that sudden design changes or spikes in volume demand are met with a confident ability to work out a mutually acceptable manufacturing commitment.
