It is the process that rules at Federal Tool and Engineering. We take time to understand what our customers need, which means 95% of the work happens before a job even hits our engineering department or our manufacturing floor.
A thorough analysis is conducted for every project, ensuring challenges are addressed up front. This allows us to offer options for our customers in finding the right solution, all under one roof. We work together to develop the most cost effective plan, while maintaining the highest quality. We are invested in not only producing the products our customers need but also designing ways to make the products work better.
Process Case Study: In an environment of increasing raw material prices it is difficult to generate meaningful cost savings. In support of a leading manufacturer of decorative plumbing fixtures, Federal analyzed multiple operation production tooling and reduced operations from five independent steps down to three. The result generated nearly a 10% cost savings and a payback on tool modifications of 7 months.
