Coater relies on a supplier's speed and service to keep powder flying
A coater's supply chain breaks down during an order deluge when a powder supplier needs 10 working days to fill and order. To keep the line running and the powder flying, the coater turns to another supplier who delivers in 3 days.
Master Products, Los Angeles, a subsidiary of Martin Yale, manufactures and powder coats a variety of office equipment. In addition to manufacturing products for its parent company, Master Products handles orders from other companies, including 3M, Bosch, and Mead-Hatcher.
