GAP Growth Accelerating Parts

Manufacturers and fabricators can spend up to 65% of their production time producing parts that go into their product. When you are looking to increase production capabilities, reduce total costs or prevent unneeded capital investments, parts production is a critical piece of your business to evaluate.

With West Central Steel’s innovative Growth Accelerating Parts (GAP) program we partner with you to understand your needs and identify solutions. Using cutting edge technology, we can often, eliminate production steps and deliver the final part to you without unnecessary secondary operations.

Magnetic drilling, splice welding long parts, cutting pieces to length, tapping holes, hand coping, kitting or doing extensive material handling are just examples of processes that drain your capacity. We can help save you time and money with to reduce or eliminate these steps with our GAP program.
