Despatch Industries

Lakeville, MN, 55044

Press release date: June 18, 2013

Minneapolis, Minn., U.S.A.– Despatch Industries, with a long held reputation for high quality industrial ovens and furnaces, has implemented new manufacturing processes that have reduced lead times by 50% or more. The company has restructured its manufacturing facility to allow for in-lining of production equipment and assembly stations that improve flow and minimize production time. Using a Kanban system where parts are automatically replenished as they are used, Despatch is able to quickly build ovens as they are ordered while keeping a limited stock of ready-to ship laboratory and production ovens on hand. The new system reduces inventory costs as well as lead times while maintaining the superior product quality that customers have come to expect.

"We have been able to reduce delivery times on large standard ovens from eight weeks down to four weeks. Cabinet ovens with Class A and high-temperature requirements are delivered in two weeks and our laboratory oven models ship from the factory in three days," states Jeff Bell, Despatch Product Manager. "Providing shorter lead times allow us to better meet our customer's needs while reducing costs ensures that our prices remain competitive in global markets."

Despatch manufactures a wide range of standard and custom industrial ovens designed to accommodate a variety of load sizes and production volumes. Standard production ovens include the LBB and LAC benchtop and laboratory ovens, LCC clean process ovens, RA series cabinet ovens, TA series walk-in and truck-in ovens and PTC top loading ovens.

The company is actively using this technical expertise to provide innovative solutions and high performance products to the thermal, solar and carbon fiber markets.
