Metal Parts & Assembled Products Labelled, Stored and Despatched
It could be assumed that, given all of the parts and assembled products we manufacture are fundamentally made from metal, they will be secure and robust in transit. However, that’s not always the case. Many of the finished products we produce are branded or constructed with plastic or electric components and care must be paid to ensure the integrity of the product in readiness for use and application.
Ensuring that all relevant previous manufacturing stages have been completed accurately and successfully, our project management team will liaise with the client to agree delivery dates, times and locations.
Top Tips for Storage & Despatch of Metal Parts and Assembled Products
Despatch is the last chance to ensure our customer receives the correct amount. One final check means you can guarantee the customer is getting what they need.
