Just-In-Time Manufacturing Helps OEM Meet Annual Financial Target

Just-In-Time Manufacturing Helps OEM Meet Annual Financial Target

A major oilfield equipment manufacturer approached CRA with a unique demand for alloy G3 and 2550 pipe to be used for a project in the Gulf of Mexico that could not be sourced from available inventory. For the OEM, this delivery represented a high percentage of their quarterly revenue and was critical for meeting annual financial targets.  With the deadline quickly approaching, the OEM had limited options to procure material in the time frame needed to manufacture, inspect, and release prior to year-end.

Working closely with the customer to co-create a solution that met the customer’s needs, while being able to utilize available feedstock, CRA’s just-in-time mill was able to accommodate the urgent requirements and got started right away. The material was manufactured to finished dimensions and threaded in just ten weeks to meet the OEM’s deadline.

Where urgent requirements, non-standard sizes, lengths, and quantities may limit traditional mills and distributors, CRA’s Just-In-Time manufacturing model ensures access to the right product in the timeframe you need it. Ready to get started? Contact our team today!
