Tahoma Engineered Solutions Completes a Remodeling Initiative Aimed at Improving Customer Response Time
August 18, 2019
ASHLAND, Ohio — Tahoma Engineered Solutions today announced a major remodeling investment at their Ashland facility. The $50,000+ building remodel includes an Assembly Lab, Tool Room, Quality Control Lab and a dedicated Fabrication Department.
According to Brian Seman, Operations Manager at Tahoma Engineered Solutions, “With our customers’ requests for short lead times for quality parts, our Tool Room Manager and Quality Coordinator responded and now we are able to finish production on one job and have the next job set up and running production on a “first article” inspected and “verified” part in as short of time as possible. We also have control over our inventory of cutting tools by maintaining a stocking system within the tool room. On the quality side of this, we are able to manage our gauges within the building and preserve our gauge calibration schedule as part of ISO to assure our customers that their tolerances are being met. The assembly lab gives provides a clean, organized area to assemble and test our customers products prior to shipment.”
With the demand for formed metal parts and welded assemblies growing, TES saw the need to have a specific area where skilled welders and fabricators could work. We dedicated a portion of the building as our fabrication department and equipped it with skilled, certified welders in MIG, TIG and Stick. The fabrication shop includes engineering and design; cutting and forming; machining and inspecting; coating and painting; and assembling and testing.
Tahoma Engineered Solutions specializes in a full-range of precision machining and formed wire products. From large to small, and ferrous to exotic, TES serves flexible volume, custom applications where state of the art intersects with hand-made. Complimenting TES product manufacturing is a process automation team specializing in customized machine design, construction and integration.
