Fast-Rite Blog

Welcome To Our Blog!

Posted in: News | Comments Off

Welcome to our blog. It’s the place where you can find out about new products.. new services.. new ways you can save money, improve productivity, enhance your products and in general reduce your TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).

How does that work? In the next few months we’ll feature articles on our main products, Fasteners, Stampings, Fittings and Assemblies. We’ll feature some new products like our Flash-Point self drilling screws which feature superior performance to the standard industry models – at competitive prices.

We’ll tell you about the great tools available that can help reduce your transaction cost and streamline your operations. Are you familiar with E-Kanban? Do you know why it’s superior to standard Kanban? Are you managing your inventory? Or are we managing it for you? What’s involved in offloading that work?

Are you using the right products? It’s common to go into a customer with thousands of SKU’s and find out that some of the components seem, well, a bit odd.. and upon asking we find out, “oh, well, that’s the way we’ve always done it”, or “Mr. X set that up 10 years ago, before he left the company.” We often find with a thorough Application Review that we can improve fastening performance, standardize and reduce SKU’s, improve the end-user experience and save our customers money!

This blog will be a work in progress, and we invite your responses. We know we’re all learning every day, and we’d like to learn from you too..

Any questions or ideas, please feel free to contact me.
