Con-Tech provides Just-In-Time Delivery (JIT) for a wide variety of industrial packaging such as 55-gallon steel drums, IBC’s, tote tanks,plastic containers, steel, and diverse products for the petrochemical, marine, automotive and other industries. We use our procurement services to ensure that products are only received when needed for outgoing orders.
We use many world-class, ISO-certified suppliers in China, Taiwan, India and elsewhere for our JIT. They are experienced in casting, stamping, deep drawing, precision machining, fabricating, finishing, forging, plating, anodizing, polishing, and injection molding.
Since its development in the 1970s, just-in-time delivery has been lauded as requiring less warehouse space and reducing waste. The system is ideal for smaller company cash flow as it precludes large orders at once. JIT can increase market share as it reduces overhead and manufacturing costs while always ensuring parts are available when needed for manufacturing. These cost reductions can be passed on to customers in lower overall pricing.
But, JIT must be implemented properly. Two key factors in successful JIT implementation are understanding customer demand and finding and developing a strong supplier relationship. When this is achieved, a JIT system drastically reduces costs.
