What is your lead time?

Standard production lead time for repeat order is 4 weeks from receipt of your purchase order. This timing can be affected if tools are being built or revised, if there is need for a visual proof approval before production is ran, or if there is a question on order line information such as part number revision or pricing discrepancy. Certain manufacturing or assembly processes may also affect the lead time.

Keeping the lead time in mind when you place your order or release ensures your nameplates and labels are scheduled to keep your operations running. Questions on your purchase order will be communicated to you by Customer Service.

Oops! I missed sending you an order! Can we expedite delivery?

Each purchase order and release received is placed into a production calendar based on the manufacturing processes needed to produce parts. When the need arises to exepedite every effort is made to review the schedule including reviewing for opportunities to hire overtime. When this happens, your Customer Service Representative will communicate with you and the production floor and advise timing improvement with costs involved.
