The FlexMation Proven Process
Listen. Summarize. We discuss your goals, needs, and wants for the project, and together, we review the environmental limitations, and establish timeline and budget.
Here’s a secret… No two manufacturers are alike. Even if you’re outputting the same type of product, your values, process and people are going to be different from your biggest competitor and the small-town startup. So why would we try to prescribe one solution for all? Answer: We wouldn’t. We embrace the uniqueness of your business, and help define what improved productivity means to you – And we ensure the end result meets your specific needs, rather than making do with a “one size fits all” approach.
Design. Review. We’ll start with a preliminary drawing and bill of materials (BOM). You’ll have a chance to review and make adjustments, and approve for us to move forward with the project.
Our in-house engineering designers are involved from the very beginning. Each project starts with a conversation with you about your assembly areas and your business goals, visiting the site when needed. Whether you’re looking to improve productivity, ergonomics, or even aesthetics, we bring helpful suggestions and ideas to get the ball rolling. Once we have the idea, our engineering designers get to work creating a custom design for your application. You’ll be involved throughout the process, providing ideas, and input, and reviewing drawings as we go.
Machine. Build. Once the design has been approved and finalized, our team moves your project into production. We’ll source the needed product, cut/machine/modify as needed, and build it to the agreed-upon design.
We fabricate and assemble all projects in our Burnsville, MN facility. Then we ship it out, fully assembled. All you have to do is load it in, load it up, and get to work. Your time is important, and you shouldn’t have to spend it putting together a complex kit of parts. (Unless you love the hands-on approach, in which case, we can work with that. Just ask for a kit instead!)
On time. On budget. We’ll package everything up and arrange for shipping. But it doesn’t end there… We’ll check in with you after the job is done to ensure the project lives up to your expectations, and whether you’ve achieved the results you were aiming for.
