GARDENA, Calif.—TCI Precision Metals recently announced the reconfiguration of its shop floor to better serve the needs of customers looking to effectively reshore manufacturing. By analyzing its machining cells and facility space, TCI has effectively consolidated its 105,000 square foot shop floor, freeing up 20,000 square feet to be used for value added operations, including sub and final assembly.
“We have always maintained plenty of space and infrastructure to support our Los Angeles-based contract machining operation,” said John Belzer, president of TCI Precision Metals, in a press release. ”Today, assembly space and resources in close proximity to full service machining, milling, and grinding operations are something many OEM manufacturers are looking for. As companies look for ways to bring their manufacturing back to the U.S., they need flexible and creative solutions and our goal is to provide them.”
TCI Precision Metals (www.tciprecision.com) recognizes that reshoring is a business decision. The reconfiguration of its shop floor reflects its belief that contract manufacturers and job shops must provide the extended value necessary for OEMs to realize sustained benefits over offshore alternatives. Shortened and just-in-time delivery, inventory management, quality improvement, total cost of ownership, and customer responsiveness are key benefits that must be realized, according to the company.
