Falcon Steel Launches Material-Management Program

Tuesday, February 16, 2016
 
Falcon Steel, Fort Worth, TX, has debuted a material-management program designed to give customers greater flexibility and shorter lead times between order and delivery. A producer of steel structures for power-delivery systems, Falcon Steel reportedly is the only manufacturer and fabricator of extra-high-voltage lattice towers, steel poles and substation structures based in the United States.
The program allows customers to plan and order in advance for steel structures to be fabricated within a given forecast. Fabricated structures are then stored onsite within designated secure inventory-management areas and managed by Falcon until the customer schedules delivery.
According to Jim Taylor, CEO of Falcon Steel, the program makes it possible to deliver products within 3 to 4 weeks of a request, far shorter than the industry’s typical 16 to 20 weeks.
“By having the right product ready to go at the right time,” says Taylor, “our program gives utilities much more flexibility in their ability to forecast, order and replenish product inventory, Our customers not only gain more control during the delivery process itself, they can also improve profitability and reduce costs throughout the entire supply chain.”
