Since the industrial revolution manufacturers have been finding ways to improve their operations. Take, for example, the assembly line. It was an innovative process to work smarter. It is the same for automation—working smarter allows a manufacturer to offer more to their customers. More automation is entering the market making it easier for companies of any size to take advantage of it.
Although some may see automation’s role in replacing workers with machines as a problem, we haven’t found that to be the case. In fact, the increase in business we have experienced since automating has caused us to hire more people to handle the jobs that machines will never be able to do. By letting the machines do the rote production work, our staff is able to build relationships with customers and expand our design services. In this way we are able to work closely with each customer to ensure that designed parts meet their exact needs. As our design services have expanded, we have been able to grow as a supplier to manufacturers in the automobile, truck, appliance, recreational vehicle, agriculture, suspension parts, and lawn and garden industry.
It is tough for manufacturers to meet the demands of these industries. But, the move into automation made it possible to increase our capacity to meet their needs. With the right equipment, and the experienced team behind it, Ohio Valley consistently produces accurate, high-quality parts every day, for every customer, at a competitive price. We pride ourselves on our ability to work with each customer to get them an outstanding design and a finished product that exceeds their expectations.
As a trusted and reliable source for heavy gauge stamping and precision blanking services, we have formed long-lasting relationships through a very diverse customer base. The customers we serve require the highest-quality parts for demanding applications. Our phenomenal growth over the last 15 years can be directly related to the continuous improvements of our operations. Automation and computerized technologies have allowed us to build our reputation in the industry as one of the top Tier 2 suppliers in the country. As we continue expanding and increasing our capacity even further, we are able to add Tier 1 suppliers to our customer base.
There is no need to fear the machines. Modern technology is making it easier to add, improve, and expand capabilities that keep American manufacturers competitive in the global marketplace. Here at Ohio Valley we understand the benefits of manufacturing automation and have embraced them. The precision we attain and the quality of the parts we produce could not be produced through manual operations.
As we continue to look toward the future of the industry we will maintain the goals we consistently work to achieve—meeting the needs of every customer through the highest quality and customer service. Contact us today to see how Ohio Valley can meet your needs.
