Cost down…quality up with TR Fastenings
Value Engineering Initiative all part of the service
Manufacturers looking to rationalise their supplier base by outsourcing the procurement of low-value items to TR Fastenings, a proven and trusted partner for the supply of its own and third party production fastenings, are also reaping the benefits of the fastener firm’s superior technical and engineering support.
Under its Value Engineering Initiative, TR’s account management teams will automatically review customers’ ordering schedules for fastenings to identify opportunities for consolidation. The objective is to reduce customers’ overall inventory and the number of individual lines carried and so strip out unnecessary costs and administration.
The TR team will also help to identify, investigate and solve production problems. For instance, A part with a larger flange diameter has spread the load on a board creating a better finished product for a UK firm.
“The larger part was already being used by this manufacturer, so this solution has standardised two parts into one,” said TR business development manager Sean Cushen. "The replacement we recommended was also marginally cheaper, albeit only to the tune of about £70 per annum."
“Of far greater value to them was the improvement in the overall appearance and performance of the finished product. Although the rivet head is normally covered with a plastic head when in use, small details like this do matter in a competitive environment.”
