“Separating the stock line has several benefits, with quality being the most important. Our employees become experts on the products they make on a daily basis.”
– Dewayne Lacefield, Project Manager at Strong Hold
WHAT TO DO WITH THAT PESKY BUDGET SURPLUS
As the fiscal year winds down, professionals working with a budget might be feeling wound up. On top of meeting annual goals and preparing reports, some will be faced with an under-spent budget. There are many ways to use that end-of-year spare change, but the smartest option may be to reinvest in your employees and infrastructure.
According to a Forbes article, improving workspaces and plant floors is a great way to attract and retain workers in a competitive market. While most manufacturing workers don’t expect a pristine palace, they do appreciate a well-maintained, safe, and operational environment. Using a sturdy shop table, finding their tools in the right drawer, or just having a clean place to store their personal belongings might be the difference that will keep workers happy and productive. Fortunately, thanks to Strong Hold’s quick ship program, these improvements are just as close as three days away.
HOW THE QUICK SHIP PROGRAM IS POSSIBLE
Strong Hold’s VP of Engineering, Kirk Chambers, tells us why innovative manufacturing processes make the quick ship program possible. “Due to the flexible design of our products, where many configurations are mounted internally to a common support structure, model designation is pushed further down the manufacturing process,” Kirk says. He continues, “by supporting the quick ship program with a constant flow of base structures, replenish times are greatly reduced.” Furthermore, an enhanced paint drying system has reduced the time between internal configuration fabrication and final installation.
Don’t let the reduced lead time fool you into believing that quality is being sacrificed. “We separated our factory into two lines: one for stock products and one for custom builds,” says Project Manager Dewayne Lacefield. “Separating the stock line has several benefits, with quality being the most important. Our employees become experts on the products they make on a daily basis.”

Whether it’s a cabinet, locker, shop desk, shop table, or tool cart, our quick ship program makes it faster than ever to spruce up your workspace.
