Production
At Buyken:

  • We have produced orders as large as 2 million parts or orders as small as one part.
  • We continually work on ways to shorten lead time.
  • We are very nimble and can produce the same part on multiple machines, and we work in multiple shifts.
  • We have full time schedulers who continually address the machine loads to meet delivery commitments.
  • We pride ourself on continually upgrading equipment to maintain speed and quality.
  • We do what it takes to get customer orders out the door, accurately and on-time.
  • We maintain a raw stock inventory so most jobs can start immediately.

Inventory Control

Buyken will do vendor-managed inventory (we manage), fax-ban inventory, pull inventory (customer pull parts from Buyken’s stock, Buyken makes and holds parts for inventory so there is always a part to pull). We also can stock parts for customers. Buyken maintains raw stock inventory to facilitate customer-stocked parts.
