Our Unique Solution Keeps Manufacturing Humming

While other companies struggle with finding employees, we found a solution that is a win for everyone involved – including our customers.

Manufacturing is the backbone of our economy. But the challenge to find workers is putting additional strain on our economic infrastructure and adding to the country’s supply chain woes. Finding employees interested in manufacturing was a challenge pre-pandemic; Covid-19 has further exacerbated the gap. The solution for Tusco Manufacturing involves getting creative to plant a spark in an unlikely resource.

The lockdown in 2020 gave people time to reflect on what was important to them, and once busine...

Does Your Sheet Metal Manufacturer Offer Warehousing and Distribution?
This is what you could be missing.

Most manufacturing requires some level of warehousing, whether it be for raw materials, work-in-process, or finished products. Maintaining and managing a large warehouse, however, adds significant costs. Vendor-managed inventory and warehousing, when done right, is one way you can reduce those costs without negatively impacting your business.

Automotive is just one industry example that has long used just-in-time inventory and management systems. These strategies align raw materials or component orders from suppliers directly with production schedules to increase efficiency and reduce was...

In-house Packaging, Contract Packager, Or Is There Another Way?

Whether you realize it or not, how your sheet metal product is packaged is a critical element of its success. Damaged products from underpackaging or, conversely, excessive packaging waste from overpackaging can turn customers off. Those customers may share their experience with others, which can cost you sales.

If your product has a polished or painted surface that can easily be scratched, proper packaging is even more critical. When it comes to packaging, you typically have two choices: you can package it yourself or send it to a contract packager.

Impact of Packaging In-house

Packaging your own products may require higher upfro...

Considerations for Onshoring: Finding the Right Sheet Metal Manufacturer

Current supply chain disruptions and backed-up ports have left many companies without needed components and products. It has also refueled the debate on whether or not American companies should onshore their sheet metal manufacturing.

Although many Americans feel strongly about “made in America” products, there are times when offshoring makes sense. What is important is that you compare costs, evaluate your risks and the additional costs associated with those risks, and know the level of risk you are willing to take on.

Here are some things to consider when choosing the right sheet metal manufacturer, whether ...

In-house Powder Coating Provides Customers Great Benefits

Powder coating traces its roots back to 1940s Germany when a fluid bed process was created to apply thermostatic resins. Modern electrostatic processing of powder coating, however, didn't make its debut until the 1960s. Today, powder coating is preferred over wet painting for its many benefits. Contract metal manufacturers that offer in-house powder coating provide even more significant benefits to their customers.

What is Powder Coating?

Powder coatings contain a mixture of polymer resins, pigments, curative additives, leveling agents, and flow modifiers that are melted together, cooled, and then ground into a powder that will be used t...
