Case Study: Short Run Production
Wolfram Manufacturing’s strength in short run production (5-200 pieces) makes our customers more competitive. Wolfram’s support of a leading manufacturer of gate valves manufactured entirely in the USA is one example. The high demand for their semi-custom products and the competitive nature of the market means very short lead times with large fluctuations in volume. Taken together these challenges make them the perfect customer for Wolfram Manufacturing. Overnight orders are a regular occurrence to allow our customer to go the extra mile for theirs.

In just over a year, Wolfram was able to learn the majority of our customer’s product line and make procedures for them. Within 4 months Wolfram increased production by 100%. After learning their product line, Wolfram’s General Manager worked with the customer’s planning department to anticipate needs based on their scheduled work. With extensive documentation and process control, Wolfram is able to expedite set-ups and respond quickly as the customer needs. The single piece flow process allows Wolfram to make partial deliveries upon request and turn around work in as little as a day.
