As we all know, projects can come at any time and at any volume. So when we received three turn key box build challenges at once, we were not surprised. This particular customer had developed and made prototypes of each but did not want to continue producing them. They came to us with a solid base of information and wanted us to ready them for production. Solving their issues one by one is what we do. That’s why forward-thinking companies rely on Paragon.
Each assembly was its own small box build and each had its challenges. One had a two-color plastic shell in specific shades. Another had a special metal container that had a textured finish and prominently featured logo on top. The third had a specially molded housing for a handle. The last two had long lead time connectors that needed to be ordered well in advance of the rest of the assemblies. And they wanted each of them to be part of an assembly stocking agreement.
No problem. The Paragon engineering team was able to juggle the needs of each of these very different assembly/box builds. We created sub assemblies to organize and streamline the various segments of the overall assemblies making it simpler to manage them. We also worked with our suppliers to have them stock the multiple week lead time connectors we would need on an ongoing basis.
There are certain customers who go out of their way to work with you and those are the ones who deserve a gold star. This customer was one of those. We were able to work hand in hand with them and smoothly transition their assemblies from firm concept to mass production.
We initiated no cost stocking programs for all three assemblies and have made sure the stock levels are always correct and available. Due to the success of this streamlined process, we have picked up even more business from this customer and others – word of mouth being such a good thing.
