Surf-Tech Manufacturing Continues Innovating the CM Industry by Providing Order Fulfillment Services
Surf-Tech Manufacturing uses its technology experience and innovation to serve a range of high-profile industries, including after–market automotive, aircraft lighting, military (US Navy), Bluetooth technology communication, boiler room controllers, border security/surveillance camera, educational teaching aids, industrial leak detectors and level sensors, inspection systems, medical rehabilitation, and power converters/inverters/supplies.
Additionally, the company is IPC, ITAR registered, and ISO 9001 certified. Personnel are certified to various applicable standards including IPC-A-610 (Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies) and J-STD-001 (requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies).
Surf-Tech Manufacturing specializes in both turnkey and consigned orders. Due to its deep supply-chain connections, it has helped several customers move from consigned to full turnkey, saving them significant bottom-line costs.
President Stephen Eggart said, “We can provide a solution to all our customers’ needs from prototype design to end customer webstore fulfillment.”
Eggart added that all the customers Surf-Tech Manufacturing has helped with online order fulfillment needs have been small engineering companies that work out of their homes and do not have the capacity to complete this themselves.
“The main target for this offering is startups and engineers who design a product and can support it, but don’t have the capacity to do daily shipments to support their webstore. We have processed as many as 200 orders a day, but typically process around 50,” said Eggart. “This offering tends to be more consumer–related products and some are sent directly to Amazon for our customers’ listings.”
Additionally, Surf-Tech Manufacturing handles all boxes, bags, instructions, and any other accessories that may need to be enclosed in the shipment. This leaves the customer with oneitem to be paid for, as opposed to an entire BOM worth of items to purchase, receive, stock, and manage. For small businesses, keeping track of this can be difficult since few are able to spend money on an ERP software program.
Eggert added that this service provides numerous benefits to Surf-Tech Manufacturing’s base of smaller customers. They do not need to order inventory and stock it themselves. They also do not need to worry about staffing a shipping department as their sales grow continually. Additional benefits for small business customers include reduced cost per order, improved time, and use of resources, seasonal scalability, decreased capital investment, faster shipping times, reducedshipping costs, and direct-to-customer shipping. However, it also offers benefits to Surf-Tech Manufacturing because the company is able to see real-time trends in sales, and it allows for increased manufacturing flexibility to ensure customers’ products are never out of stock.
Surf-Tech Manufacturing is one of only a few contract manufacturing companies to offer this service, furtherillustrating its desire to truly help its customers succeed.
