The question isn’t so much “who” is it for, but what parts could be considered stock-grade? For parts to qualify for our stocking program, we will want to look at the total volume, forecasted demand, order frequency and lifetime of the part. There is no one-size-fits all, but as a rule of thumb, demand should be considered stable to growing, order frequency should be at minimum four times per year and the lifetime of the part should be at least 5-10 years.
Few things can slow the pace of change. Manufacturing is evolving at unprecedented rates. What was standard a few years ago may now be obsolete and short run metal stamping is no exception. At Neway Stamping, we have always stayed abreast of change and have historically done well with this approach. But in this evolutionary time, we’re challenging ourselves to do more.
