Here at TCA, our mission is to fulfill the needs of our customers. A couple of weeks ago we posted some kind feedback we had received. We’d like to take a minute to talk about the process that made that project such a success.
The equipment we build here is top of the line. The prototype system we made for this client, meant only as a precursor to their finished system, was able to produce prototype product. That meant that they could send it off for testing and approvals before their final system was ready.
Once we had settled on the prototype machinery we started building the first production line. But the product coming out of the prototype machinery was of such high quality that we ran it two shifts a day for months to create our customer’s initial inventory. It meant that they got to market faster than if they had waited to start production until the first finished line was built.
Running production on the prototype unit was invaluable, giving us copious feedback to improve the first production line. And when the customer said that demand for their product would justify a second production line, we were able to repurpose much of the equipment from the prototype line. Overall our machines went to work faster, which got our customers’ orders out the door sooner. That meant savings in both time and cost, and a very successful project outcome.
