TW Metals Supports Supply Chain Needs
Through its long associations with aerospace OEMs, TW Metals has provided the raw material, purchased parts, primers & details to qualified, certified global aerospace fabricators. Within the past few years, TW Metals was asked to provide logistics, planning and forecasting functions to support global integration of the supply chain and the off-load of work to lower cost countries.
This strategy evolved into the supply of fabricated parts and assemblies direct from TW Metals to the OEMs in support of production. TW Metals now manages multiple fabricated parts and assemblies programs. This provides for many of these products to be delivered in kit form direct to the OEM assembly line in a lean JIT environment.
In its role as an integrator, TW Metals is not restricted by machine capabilities, technical limitations, geography, logistics, surface treatment constraints, capacity or other limiting factors. TW Metals selects “best in class” for all levels of fabrication. Redundant vendors can be selected for mission critical components. TW Metals supplies material from its inventory, mill direct or customer owned inventory. In partnership with dozens of ISO and ASA certified aerospace fabricators in multiple countries (Poland, Romania, Chile, Brazil, India, China, etc.), TW Metals offers the most effective, low cost integrated solution for quality aerospace parts delivered to the point of use JIT.
