Turning innovative designs into functional systems
At SSP, there is no barrier between an innovative design and its production. Our engineering systems work directly with our manufacturing systems. Using 6 Sigma principles, and guided by our 6 Sigma manufacturing “blackbelts” on our shop floor, we move rapidly from design through forming, fabricating, test and production.
We take a systems approach to manufacturing with an MRP system, manufacturing cells, Just-In-Time processes, HOC metrics boards, Kaizen events and Kanban to keep our cells supplied in a timely manner. We handle the entire logistics necessary for the efficient and cost-effective manufacturing of advanced ducting systems – including keeping appropriate levels of safety stock.
Our background is in forming and fabricating—there are no “off-the-shelf” systems – each system and all its components are custom made for each customer program. We bend our own tubes, using the latest in multiple bend, automatic equipment, as well as manual techniques. We make our own tools and design and build the appropriate joints and connections.
We are committed to manufacturing that is lean and green, and we can take each job all the way to kitted assembly for our customers. 90% of all the work done on any program is done in-house - giving SSP unprecedented control over the process.
