The Frame & Truss industry is under extreme competitive pressure. Every fabricator is constantly seeking to increase their efficiency and reduce costs to remain competitive.
Apart from the ongoing labour management issues, new and better ways must be implemented to remain ahead of the game.
What is purchased is so important to installed unit cost. The classic tell-tale is if a plant recovers enough trimmers, nogs & blocks from offcuts of chords, studs & plates – the purchasing process needs review. In fact, the more requirement to buy in blocking products is an indication of stronger purchasing efficiency.
As the Frame & Truss industry has generally recognised this type and other similarly important cost savings in inventory management, so PTS has been able to provide plants with true advantages.
