When people think of PTM, they tend to think of parts, and the design, tooling, and fabrication processes associated with them. That’s understandable: Parts of all types and sizes are the core of our business, and the basis for our reputation. But we don’t just know how to make parts – we know how to put them together, and how to do it well.
Quite a while ago, we recognized that we were ideally positioned to provide outstanding value-added assembly services, both for parts we made and parts we didn’t (and, naturally, combinations of the two). Our process and efficiency expertise, highly skilled staff, and logistics capabilities made value-added assembly a natural extension of our services. At the same time, many of our clients needed a cost-effective and reliable way to expand their assembly capabilities without adding facilities, equipment or staff.
In our eyes, that made for a perfect fit. By creating a dedicated value-added assembly services, we were immediately able to increase our value to our existing clients, as well as draw attention from companies needing the full range of services we could offer. We were the “one total solution provider” that could deliver high quality concept-to-completion services, and do it economically and effectively.
PTM currently has a dedicated 35,000 square foot facility dedicated to value-added assembly. Naturally, we are called upon to assemble parts we fabricate, but more and more often we’re also asked to handle assembly projects from parts sourced elsewhere. As word spreads about our success, more companies are recognizing that they can get the quality, consistency, and efficiency they need by working with us, rather than dealing with the expense and effort involved in building up their own assembly capacity.
Of course, precision is everything when it comes to assembly, and we’re proud to say we’re more than able to meet some of the tightest specs in our field. Quality equipment makes all the difference. Check out this video of one of our robotic roll hemming machines to see for yourself:
Naturally, robotic roll hemming is only one of our capabilities, but it’s a good example of how PTM can tackle critical assembly jobs and achieve outstanding results. In future blogs, we’ll share more about our assembly operations, but in the meantime, why not learn more about what we can do firsthand? Contact us to tell us about your specific needs, and we’ll be happy to discuss the possibilities and take you on a tour of our facilities.
