Tier 1 / Tier 2
Simplify Buying and Planning Processes
When people think of a typical CNC machine shop they usually think of traditional “machining only” activity with customer-supplied material. At Trace, we can help you with these traditional needs, but we can also do so much more!
We provide sourcing of Castings, Forgings and/or Fabrications.
We’ve worked with dozens of raw material suppliers from concept to CNC prototype & through to production.
When it comes to integrated CNC machining services one of our chief strategic advantages is our family of companies, which include Cutting Edge Fabrication, American Friction Welding and D&H Metal Stamping. This family of companies helps us further our abilities to streamline your supply chain.
Quick Response Program (QRP)
Get Fast Response Times
When your customer can’t wait, Trace can improve your responsiveness with our “Quick Response Program (QRP)”.
This streamlined Office-to-Floor process means we can respond to your needs in mere hours!
Our QRP is based on ready-to-go holding material (yours or ours), so when your customer has a known requirement just give us the signal to start machining…fast!
Exceed Customer Expectations
When your business requires operating in a Just-In-Time (JIT) environment or you simply want the confidence to be able to respond to non-uniform demand, Trace helps you build a stocking strategy that exceeds your customers’ expectations.
Trace is uniquely positioned to have sufficient floor/racking space to accommodate programs requiring thousands of cubic feet of climate-controlled storage.
Whether the stock quantity of parts is derived from a forecast or a Kanban-like pull system, we have the tools to engage as if we were a direct extension of your production management system.
