Popular Sizes of Mechanical & Factory Automation Components to be Available for One-Day Shipment from Los Angeles Area Warehouse
(Schaumburg, IL) - MISUMI USA, Inc., a subsidiary of MISUMI Corporation, part of MISUMI Group, Inc. (Tokyo: 9962), has announced it will add a significant number of frequently ordered components to its distribution center in Torrance, CA, near Los Angeles. In response to increased demand, popular sizes and styles of many of MISUMI's mechanical and factory automation components will be added to the local stock and many will be available for one-day shipping.
Opened earlier this year, the 34,000-sq-ft facility serves MISUMI customers across the Western U.S., including Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. For these companies, convenient local stocking of frequently ordered components means that parts that used to ship in 3 to 8 days, will now ship in one (1) day with no increase in shipping charges. Same-day shipment may be available on orders placed before noon CST.
According to MISUMI USA President, Nobuyuki Ashida, "Our goal is to provide the highest quality service to our customers and by building a better customer experience, we build a better business." As the company's in-stock parts initiative ramps up over the coming months, at both the West Coast and Illinois distribution centers, the reduced lead times will be reflected immediately on MISUMI's unique and easy-to-use Web. To view locally stocked products, users can simply filter their product search criteria by Ship Date of 1 day or less. Since MISUMI has no minimum order requirement, this improved delivery schedule can impact the purchase of even a single component. A sampling of the new stocked items are: Collars, Washers, Valves, Seals, Oil-free Bushings, Shaft Collars, Manifold Blocks, Idler Pulleys, Rollers, Cam Followers, Timing Belts, Bearings, Bushings for Locating Pins, Aluminum Extrusions, Linear Guides, X-Axis Adjustment Units, Angle Plates, and more. A complete list of in-stock components can be downloaded here.
With no minimum order requirements or set-up charges on a product portfolio of more than 1,000,000 metric and inch mechanical components, MISUMI has built its reputation as the premier global supplier of high quality factory automation components. At the heart of the MISUMI business model is the unique on-demand CAD Configurator and convenient electronic commerce on the one-stop Web.
