The project was a huge success that resulted in an increase in sales, improving the fulfilling of existing and new orders. Cost savings were realized through decrease labor and scrap rates as well as the avoidance of buying the planned new machinery. With the help of AEDC Manufacturing Solutions, we continue to use this approach to improve our efficiencies and increase our output. AEDC-MS is an extremely valuable resource partner and has been a significant contributor to our sales growth and profitability.
After evaluating a plan to eliminate a major bottleneck by purchasing new machinery, AEDC-MS began researching how current equipment could be modified. Previous owners of the company had begun modifications to the existing equipment but abandoned the project before completion. AEDC-MS used these previous modifications as a starting point and, after identifying the potential of the existing setup, modernized that equipment. As a result, Garreco achieved both significant savings due to the avoided investment and also increased sales after eliminating the troublesome bottleneck.
