Small Lot Production
When your customers count on you for complex, customized products under short lead times, count on us to help you deliver. IMS is an industry partner of choice for tailored, high-quality solutions designed to meet your high-mix, low-volume requirements, including fulfilling your un-forecasted demand.
For many products you manufacture, you may not have visibility to forecast exact allocation or quantities that will be demanded, but you cannot afford to present long lead times to your customers.
IMS’ flexible processes provide excellent service and quality while keeping inventory costs low. We stock long-lead-time components and meet production based on your customer orders.
We start the day we receive the order—and can provide working and testing assemblies within hours after the request. This allows you to provide outstanding customer service while minimizing inventory.
Within hours of an order, IMS can custom configure and ship products based on your customer’s specifications. For products with multiple configurations, this can be a cost-effective solution as it reduces inventory and provides responsiveness to your customer’s needs.
Whether you have two or 20 different configurations, the IMS team can quickly process, build, and deliver the assembly. We can also provide additional assembly services, including packaging, labeling, and programming.
With engineers juggling more projects at one time than ever before, and timelines increasingly short, outsourced design and engineering support provides an attractive opportunity to leverage your team’s resources.
Our expertise, combined with our manufacturing capabilities, means that you have an integrated partner that will design with production and quality in mind. Engineering support can range from alternate parts sourcing to DFM and QC strategies—making IMS a true partner to electronics engineering teams across the U.S.
With our expert sourcing capabilities and processes, we can take your bill of materials (BOM) and find components for the best price with the fastest delivery. We source components from suppliers that are proven, cost-effective, consistent in their delivery, and offer small quantities at a time.
Our flexibility in how you provide your BOM is one example of why we are the partner of choice—we don’t force you into our “mold.” Our teams are trained to take whatever is handed off and work with it, saving you time and hassle.
