Supply Chain Management
Avalon Precision Metalsmiths offers complete, top-to-bottom supply chain management for our customers. By utilizing redundant manufacturing, inventory management, blended supply capabilities, and multiple casting processes, we can ensure that you have the precision cast parts you need on hand, when and where you need them.
We are one of the few investment casting companies with four fully redundant production plants plus off-shore supply capabilities. We often create two identical sets of tooling and use these tools to produce parts at two of our domestic locations or at one of our domestic locations and at one of our off-shore partner's facilities.
We are happy to work with you to create a supplier-managed inventory program. With kanban capabilities at our locations, you can have your parts shipped, as needed, from a pre-established inventory that we will then resupply for future orders. This helps reduce the turnaround time for orders from the usual 8-10 weeks to around one week.
Blended Supply Capabilities:
We can supply parts and tooling from both our domestic and off-shore production facilities. With blended production and pricing, we can provide high priority, lower-volume cast parts quickly and high-volume, lower priority cast parts at more economical prices.
Multiple Casting Processes:
Investment casting, die casting, sand casting, and permanent mold casting can all be a part of the supply chain we manage for our customers. We’re more than just a domestic investment casting company, we’re a casting company with multiple investment casting facilities domestically that can manage your supply chain for investment cast products and/or other precision cast products produced via other processes off-shore.
