Start the manufacturing process outside your plant. With Kanban’s kitting solutions and sub-assembly services, your skilled labor can focus on making products and avoid non-value-added activities like searching for parts, de-trashing and other routine tasks.
Design and creation of custom kits. We can produce trays to hold multiple parts used together during manufacturing. These kits can then be delivered to the exact point of use on the line, making assembly workers hyper-efficient.
Sub-assembly. Kanban also performs basic sub-assembly tasks. For importers, this work can be done in our active foreign trade zone to defer duties until goods are distributed.
JIT delivery. Completed kits are delivered to the point of use based on demand signals or a pre-determined schedule. Kanban’s truck fleet can provide these shuttle services to local plants.
Benefits of JIT delivery and kitting solutions
Increase productivity and production output
Reduce labor costs, as non-value added tasks can be done less expensively at a nearby warehouse
Free up space on your plant floor
Reduce on-hand inventory
