At Assembly Fasteners, we have firmly embraced the use of technology as a means of keeping a free flow of information between ourselves and our customers and trading partners. We have worked hard on implementing systems that not only facilitate data sharing, but also streamline and simplify the business processes we conduct on an everyday basis. Unique in our approach, we have designed our systems in such a way that they can be custom tailored to coordinate with your specific requirements.
Our IT staff can manipulate the software that drives our vendor-managed inventory systems to seamlessly integrate into your specific ERP or MRP system. The end result? Instant access to stock levels, pricing, delivery, order status, lot traceability, or any selection of data that is significant to you. We also have tools that accept any EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) transaction; just let us know what you require. We use our document imaging system to capture and retain relevant documents including packing lists, material certifications, and quality system records. Scanned images of inventory items can be instantly faxed or e-mailed, and when you need a part drawing or data sheet in a hurry, we will have it for you.
There other some other big benefits. Trading data electronically reduces errors, avoids duplicate efforts, and boosts productivity. Information sharing becomes faster and more effective. And think of how much paper is saved! If you are one of our customers or trading partners and have suggestions on how we can use technology to further improve our communications, we would be happy to hear from you!
Although it might seem remarkable given the seemingly infinite number of standard fastener options available, sometimes you need something a little longer, or with threads spaced a little wider, or constructed from a different material than stock inventory can offer. When the precise and unique requirements of your application demand a custom solution, look no further than Assembly Fasteners. Send us your PDF print, and we will source the fastener for you—rapidly and at a reasonable cost. No print? No problem! Send us the part and we will reverse-engineer the drawing for you.
Custom options are almost limitless: Need specific color? We’ll paint it. Anti-vibration application? We’ll thread lock it. High temperature? Anti-corrosion? We’ll coat it, seal it, and cure it. If it’s metal, we’ll machine it, if it’s plastic, we’ll mold it. Using our carefully screened network of both domestic and off-shore fabricators, we can supply high volume custom fasteners for use in many industries, including electronic assembly, medical equipment, and telecommunications. And we don’t limit parts to just fasteners; our sources are fully capable of precise tolerance CNC machining of component parts for your entire assembly application.
What else can you rely on from our custom supplied parts? Quality. We stand 100% behind the integrity of everything we sell. All products are subject to the stringent standards demanded by the requirements of ANSI/ASQC Standard Q9002:1994/ISO 9001:2008. So the next time you are looking for a reliable supplier for that certain special fastening solution, please contact us at Assembly Fasteners.
Every manufacturer, distributor, and end-user faces the challenge of monitoring and managing inventory. Large quantities of small parts can be particularly daunting. As a leading supplier of fastener and assembly solutions, our vendor managed inventory systems are a natural complement to our product line and provide customers with countless benefits, including convenience, consolidation, customer service, and competitive pricing.
Simply stated, VMI services are a convenient means for you, the customer, to have on hand the parts you need when you need them. Utilizing inventory programs such as A.V.I.S., IPS, or RIMS, we track and manage inventory and replenish stock at specified levels, freeing you from keeping significant safety stock on hand while also avoiding the risk of stockout. Less money tied up in inventory can result in meaningful cost savings for your business.
Our commitment to product diversity also allows you to consolidate purchasing activity under one VMI system, improving visibility into inventory levels for numerous components over your entire supply chain. Why spend the extra operational time ordering, receiving, and inspecting material from many vendors when Assembly Fasteners can supply you with the high quality products you need at a competitive price you can afford?
Finally, look to our VMI systems to provide you with an unmatched level of customer service. When we partner with you, we proactively manage your inventory to your total satisfaction. Detailed monthly reports track inventory activity, and data can be integrated into your existing ERP and warehouse management systems to supply you with the visibility you need for making intelligent business decisions.
